Green by Iceland

E-World 2022

Energy and water

Iceland has been harvesting renewable energy for more than a century.

100% of electricity and house-heating needs are met with renewables in Iceland.  Furthermore, icelandic companies have been developing projects where CO2 emissions are captured, turned into stone and stored underground at an industrial scale. Turning green hydrogen and CO2 from geothermal power plants or other sources into liquid methanol for fuel application, greener chemicals, and products, has also advanced as a solution available worldwide.

We are joined by 6 Icelandic companies at Hall 1 - Stand 217. Meet our Icelandic experts there and learn more.

Pure North

Pure North is an Icelandic environmental technology company. We operate Icelands' only plastic recycling plant in South of Iceland which is powered solely by geothermal steam and electricity from hydropower. We currently receive and recycle most of the agricultural film plastic used in Iceland and are continuously expanding our operations to be able to recycle other plastic types. We are proud to say that our process has been shown to have as much as 80% lower carbon footprint pr. ton of plastic recycled than EU average recycling processes. Furthermore, by recycling 1 ton of plastic and bringing it to the market we prevent emissions of 1,5 tons of CO2 equivalents that would have been emitted from production of virgin material.

SideWind brings a new concept based on a plug&play, recyclable and cost-effective vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT), horizontally arranged, inside a wall-free container to harness the wind energy flowing over cargo ships. Vessel’s owners do not need to redesign neither carry out infrastructural changes to implement Sidewind. The design of Sidewind turbines allows to manage them as another container, being easily loaded/unloaded.
