Swedish Innovations outshine international competition

Today the international Globe Award jury released the nominations in the Sustainability Innovation category.  The independent jury is represented by five experts from USA, UK, Canada and South Africa and has received applications from over 13 different countries. After a thorough selection process, five outstanding companies have made it to the finals.


Cortus AB: Cortus has developed a way to produce large amounts of energy in an inexpensive and environmentally friendly way. Their process converts biomass into gas with a very high energy value. It provides a renewable energy source. It also provides a source of energy that is not based on fossil fuels rather taking a step forward into a climate-friendly and sustainable future.

Deflamo: Apyrum® is a biomimetric, environmentally-friendly, cost-efficient, and totally biodegradable flame retardant that is an alternative to toxic flame retardants. Sweden

Scandinavian Enviro Systems: Carbonizing by Forced Convection is a technology that thermally breaks down any organic material in a closed, controllable, environmentally friendly system. The result is highly efficient recycling of complex and traditionally difficult to recycle products. For example using this system, worn out tires can be processed to produce high quality products (Carbon Black, oil, steel and gas) in an environmentally friendly, profitable and energy efficient process. The result is improved sustainability by optimizing the cradle-to-cradle lifecycle. Based in Sweden
