Verapark is a greenhouse for environment-related development and innovation. Here, companies operating within Verapark's area receive help with exposure, contacts, collaborations between the business sector and the public sector, and connection to the academic world, which regenerates competence. Verapark also has access to the pragmatic recycling at NSR Garbage site.
Vera Park Incubator process is unique and it shows how waste can be transformed to commercial products
In short, a large lab in nature with recycled materials.
Particle boards are a common part of many furniture and are found in almost all Swedish homes. Traditionally, the tiles are made of wood chips and binders, often formaldehyde. The crux is that this binder is partly a non-renewable fossil resource and that they can spread unhealthy substances in the home.
When it becomes over 18 degrees hot indoors, the formaldehyde begins to leak to the air. Studies show that formaldehyde is an allergenic substance that can also cause cancer, says Mahmood Hameed.
In general, wood waste is burned to extract energy, which increases global warming. The chipboards made of garbage thus have both climate and health benefits. Right now, Mahmood Hameed is holding a patent application regarding the adhesive.
Landfill mining and reclamation (LFMR) is a process whereby solid wastes which have previously been landfilled are excavated and processed. The function of landfill mining is to reduce the amount of landfill mass encapsulated within the closed landfill and/or temporarily remove hazardous material to allow protective measures to be taken before the landfill mass is replaced.
In the process, mining recovers valuable recyclable materials, a combustible fraction, soil, and landfill space. The aeration of the landfill soil is a secondary benefit regarding the landfill's future use. The combustible fraction is useful for the generation of power. The overall appearance of the landfill mining procedure is a sequence of processing machines laid out in a functional conveyor system. The operating principle is to excavate, sieve and sort the landfill material.
