The Green Industrial Municipality
Kalundborg - a green industrial municipality in 2020
For a number of years Kalundborg Municipality has emphasized the importance of promoting sustainability and eco-friendly technologies. Not least because many of our large industrial enterprises for obvious reasons consume substantial amounts of energy.
Kalundborg Municipality's industrial area includes e.g. :
- two of the world's leading producers of enzyme and insulin
- the largest water treatment plant of Northern Europe
- the second largest oil refinery of the Baltic Region
Demonstration plant of 2nd generation bioethanol
In 2009 the world's biggest demonstration plant of 2nd generation bioethanol was built in Kalundborg. This explains why energy saving programmes and increased sustainability have major potential in Kalundborg Municipality.
International medico and clean tech companies
Several large international medico and clean tech companies have established major production facilities in Kalundborg.
This has made our municipality very experienced in providing a professional fast track and single point of contact for handling the complex tasks involved in site selection, site development and applying for the appropriate permits.
Support to industrial community
We support our industrial community in their R&D activities.
In our industrial symbiosis eight industrial companies are working together by making by-products commercially interesting as new resources in other production processes after the cradle to cradle model.
One of the participants is our own waste management in one of the most advanced ozone treatment facilities in Northern Europe.
We look very much forward to welcoming you into our municipality.
