Eco-Industrial Park

Pioneering Geothermal Excellence for a Sustainable Future

Geothermal SMART Industrial Symbiosis

One of the most striking environmental benefits of Árbakki Eco-Industrial Park is its commitment to geothermal energy optimisation. Located in a region abundant with geothermal resources, the park harnesses the Earth’s natural heat to power its operations, drastically reducing reliance on fossil fuels and minimizing carbon emissions. This does not only diminish the parks ecological footprint, but also serves as a source of inspiration for similar initiatives globally.

Leading the Way with Circular Economy Excellence in Design and Management

The park’s design and management incorporates a recycling and waste management system. Through advanced technologies and meticulous planning, it operates on a closed-loop concept, where waste from one process becomes raw material for another process, when possible. The adoption of this circular economy strategy significantly reduces waste generation and landfill contribution, encapsulating the fundamental principles of sustainability.

Living Lab Research Center  

The park fosters a culture of innovation and collaboration, nurturing research and development initiatives focused on eco-friendly technologies. It serves as a hub for forward thinking research institutes and companies, fostering a collaborative environment that propels the advancement of sustainable practices and technologies.
