Sustainability Director

WA3RM

WA3RM develops and finances circular and biobased operations that reuse residual flows from major industries. WA3RM regenerates industrial waste streams and turns them to life, typically in greenhouses, fish farms, water treatment or biofuel.

WA3RM focuses on large, energy-intensive, industries with well-developed and efficient operations. These produce a steady flow of surplus streams that represent challenges in terms of sustainability and that are often costly for the industry to handle. These flows can represent important resources for external actors, which is one of the core aspects of WA3RM’s offering.

WA3RM connect players who would never have come into contact with each other to create a new business that offers many positive effects, including:

  • an opportunity for heavy industry to achieve climate neutrality or even climate positivity (“beyond zero”) before 2030
  •  a new green investment instrument for investors (our concept has attracted a great deal of interest from institutional actors)
  •   an opportunity for Sweden to turn a comparative disadvantage (cold climate and darkness) into a comparative advantage (heating and access to CO2 at low cost combined with relatively low electricity prices) which allows us to strengthen our degree of self-sufficiency in fruit and vegetables (today we according to LRF at 50% compared to eg Finland which is at 80%) – of all the tomatoes we eat in Sweden today, 85% are importeda local and “smartly produced” food that is not “weighed down” by long transports before they reach Swedish consumers
