Resource efficiency with focus on energy efficiency, low emissions and nutrient and material recovery

Resource efficiency includes utilizing bioenergy sources and at the same time enabling recovery of other resources, as for example nutrients and sustainable cities built in an ecologic, economic, and social sustainable way.

Another important area is investigating possible process integration for both increased flexibility and resource efficiency as well as low emissions.
