Stena Recycling to start a circular consulting business



Sweden's leading recycling company, Stena Recycling, is broadening its offering and starting a service business, under the name Stena Circular Consulting. Its focus will be on supporting companies in their development toward sustainable and circular solutions that provide both environmental and business value.

All indications show that circularity will be a key issue for the manufacturing industry and other companies in the near future. Both the EU and Sweden, through their strategies and plans, are indicating that the circular economy is an important factor in creating a sustainable society. With decades of practical experience in recycling, Stena Recycling is today uniquely positioned to help companies become even more sustainable through circular readjustment.

– Today, we are facing a paradigm shift in how we use the earth's resources. Most people have realized that we cannot continue with a throwaway, linear economy. We can’t continue wasting valuable resources by allowing them to be incinerated or sent for landfill. We need to find circular solutions that work in practice. Stena Recycling has a fantastic base, with solid knowledge in all parts of the recycling chain; from waste collection and processing to supplying processed and recycled raw materials worldwide, says Mattias Nilsson, Head of Sales and Marketing at Stena Recycling AB.

– What we are going to do is help customers build strategies and plans that will make them genuinely circular. As a company, you may need to fundamentally change your business in the long term. It may require optimizing an entire facility or process to make your business sustainably and profitably circular. By collaborating with Stena Recycling, you will have access to practical knowledge about design, materials and technology. Together, we can design your organization, your process flows and your products - all with the aim of achieving circularity, says Mattias Nilsson.

Stena Circular Consulting will be offering its services to Swedish customers from this autumn. In the future, it is also planned to have employees in Norway, Denmark, Finland and Poland, with the organization being led from Sweden. The company’s consulting services aim to help customers plan and drive their transformation to become sustainably circular, in both the short and long term. Services offered will include:

  • Circular strategy throughout the value chain
  • Circular processes and product design
  • Optimization of recycling and waste management
  • Development of circular business models

– Stena Recycling has built Sweden's leading recycling business over 80 years. We recycle waste from all areas of business and deliver recycled, process-critical raw materials to a large number of customers in many industries. Now is the time for us to share our knowledge in depth, in the form of professional consulting services based on our solid expertise, says Mattias Nilsson.
