Lindum’s involvement in the project

Lindum believes in the future of sustainable cycles. This means that we are as a waste company focusing on how to abolish waste! Moving from “waste” to resource recycling is Lindum’s business. Organic waste is a major part of this. Organic wastes are very valuable for energy, food and soil production (and very damaging for the environment if not treated properly). The Food to Waste to Food project encompasses many of the core activities of Lindum: food waste handling, biogas and biofertiliser production, composting and soil production, and cutting edge technologies for the integration of sectors into the future cycle-based society.

The company

Lindum AS (Lindum) was established in 1997 as a municipality-owned company. In 2001 the company was converted to a limited company, 100 % owned by the municipality of Drammen. Today, Lindum consists of Lindum AS, with its main base in Drammen, and the subsidiary companies Lindum Kommunalservice AS (recycling plant), Lindum Energi AS (power production), Lindum Oredalen AS at Hurum , Bioressurs Østlandet AS in Fredrikstad, Lindum Egge AS in Lier, Lindum Bioplan AS in Western Norway, and Lindum International AS at Son. The company has approx. 100 employees.
