Abstract [en]

Waste is a wealthy resource in the city of Borås in Sweden. The city has developed a sustainable waste management mechanism by reducing landfill, recovering fuel from the waste and recycling in collaboration with University of Borås, local municipality and other private partners. The system was designed back in 1986 to convert waste into value- added products such as biogas, electricity and heat. Hardly less than 1% of waste ends in landfills, thus Borås has given a new model of utilizing waste in a useful and economical way for a better environment. In most of the countries the waste is thrown away in the landfills which leads to health hazards, safety issues and loss of valuable resources. The Borås model emphasizes on ''reduce, recycle and recover energy'' before dumping. Before 1996 more than 40% of waste was landfilled in Sweden and today it has approached to zero landfill. The household waste is sorted in 30 fractions and then used. In a city of 100,000 population through using waste more than 3 million m3 biogas is produced every year which runs the buses, garbage trucks and around 300 CNG vehicles in the city. 960 MWh heat and electricity is also generated everyday. More than 90% recycling of PET and aluminum bottles is done in Sweden. The University of Borås actively conducts research and workshops in the sector. This public, private partnership model has made Borås a zero waste city.
