Environmental policy

Rubrik

At Hällsnäs, we strive to offer products and services that have been produced with the minimum environmental impact possible. We are a Nordic Ecolabelled facility and are constantly working to reduce our environmental impact by improving our work in energy, water, resource consumption, chemicals and waste management.

We have clear routines for all employees so they will feel involved and take responsibility for the environment. We prioritize suppliers who are environmentally certified and who work actively with sustainability.

Own treatment plant for water and sewage

Our treatment plant was installed in 2017 and is adapted to the environmental requirements that prevail here at Långenäs.

The treatment plant is built around a modular system of fiberglass tanks adapted to the hotel’s capacity. At the heart of the treatment plant, the bioreactor, the biological treatment takes place. They use so-called fix film technology where the bacteria that break down the pollutants live on a carrier material as opposed to activated sludge processes. The bacteria are given optimal oxygenation through air diffusers in the tank. The advantages of the fixed film technology include more stable operation, very low sludge escape and a protected bacterial strain.
