Eco-village

The green and clean selfsustainable village.

In the modern world of globalisation and the movement of people to the cities, sometimes we forget about the villages. The villages should have the same possibilities for clean water, modern waste management, heat and electricity. Gästrike återvinnare with its partners are taking the challenge to be a part of turning villages into Eco-villages. Gästrike återvinnare is working with this everyday at home in Sweden everyday and we know how to turn waste into value. Read about the concept of Eco-village and contact us for more information.

Eco-village  - the three cornerstones

  1. A complete concept for a environmental solution for waste, water and energy. The concept caters to smaller communities.
  2. Safe and solid Swedish technology solutions for local implementation. Easy to use and easy maintenance.
  3. The staff for maintenance and operations is local citizens from the community. All training is performed locally in each community

Eco-village - the concept

Waste - a simple recycling station for a number of selected fractions can be part of the local community recycling or picked up and shipped to recycling centrals within a defined geographic area. Some fractions like metal, plastic or paper can even gene-rate a return profit. This is cost effective and great for the environment.

Water - simple and solid purifying technique that works for the areas specific needs. For example arsenic in the groundwater.

Sewage sludge - private sewers. We have local solutions for smaller communities. Recycling of phosphorus. We have different options from Swedish manufacturers for individual households , groups of households and small communities.

Energy -method based on methane gas extraction from landfills. The methane gas makes a motor run and which produces electricity.

We strongly believe that together we can make the necessary changes that will make our planet last longer. The first step - how to get started - is the hardest. We know from experience what needs to be done and we also know that it takes time, so please don't hesitate so call us,
