Copenhagen Malmö Port (CMP) values sustainability very highly and made Stena Recycling its sole recycling partner in 2016.
This exclusive agreement ensures that its waste management is optimized, which contributes to the port’s competitiveness. In one year, Stena has handled the waste from nearly 200 vessels. This amounted to 4,000 tonnes, most of which was oilcontaminated engine room waste. It is transported to Stena Recycling’s facility in Halmstad, where it is processed into a unique, quality-assured oil product, used in high energy-consuming industries.
The agreement with Stena Recycling provides CMP with a high level of service, not least from the competent on-site staff, who support both port employees and ship’s crews. CMP also has access to a customer portal that provides information on waste flows and logistics, which significantly reduces administration. It also has a Stena hotline to handle any urgent needs.
28 containers (six open and 22 frontloading) are strategically placed around the port along with seven recycling stations and nearly 50 recycling bins of different sizes. The benefits for CMP are not only financial. Sorting-at-source has been widely introduced, which improves its recycling capabilities and offers safer waste management.
