Water and the supply of water are fundamental to almost all industrial processes in Kalundborg. As a consequence, the total amount of water used by the industry is very considerable, and the wastewater treatment systems are equally sized and of great importance to the industry. The demand for black and clean utility systems is very high, with an extensive infrastructure to supply and distribute steam, heating and cooling, power supply, exhaust, gasses, etc.
Kalundborg is world-renowned for its 50-year-old Industrial Symbiosis and is part of developing the Kalundborg industry into a sustainable production. This is key and strictly necessary for the future development of the industry. Resource savings, optimizations and sustainability is also a major topic that then has come to define master thesis projects in collaboration with universities and Helix Lab.
