Helsingborg: Industrial and urban symbiosis

In Helsingborg, industrial symbiosis began in the mid-1970s when a chemical industry began supplying the city with district heating. Among other things, this has led to the development of the Swedish Platform for Industrial and Urban Symbiosis, which is part of the Swedish Network for Industrial and Urban Symbiosis (SNIUS). Another spin-off is Vera park, which is a greenhouse for environment-related development.
