“Fur­ther, we’re cur­rently in dis­cus­sions with a lo­cal bus com­pany in re­gard to po­ten­tially ex­pand­ing the use of meth­ane as a fuel for pub­lic trans­port buses, a so­lu­tion that could be ideally aligned with our new bio­gas fa­cil­ity.”

Ex­plor­ing a mul­ti­tude of ways that waste can be turned into and utilised as en­ergy, SORPA con­tin­ues to turn cu­rios­ity from con­cept into re­al­ity, rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing Ice­land’s waste man­age­ment prac­tices.

Fa­cil­i­tat­ing the fu­ture

Fun­da­men­tally, SORPA’S ac­claimed ap­proach has been cru­cial in al­low­ing Ice­land to bet­ter ad­dress the chal­lenges posed by rising waste, both rais­ing aware­ness and pro­vid­ing ef­fec­tive so­lu­tions.

“SORPA’S con­tri­bu­tion is vi­tal when it comes to re­duc­ing the en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact of waste in Ice­land,” Halldórs­son adds. “Work­ing in this priv­i­leged po­si­tion, we en­sure that we play a key role in help­ing to achieve al­most all of the coun­try’s sus­tain­abil­ity goals.”

In re­cent times, Ice­land has be­gun to ex­pe­ri­ence tourism pros­per­ity. Be­tween 2016 and 2017 alone, vis­i­tor num­bers rose by 24.2 per­cent, up from 1.8 mil­lion to 2.2 mil­lion.

With this in mind, achiev­ing these goals will be highly de­pen­dent on SORPA’S abil­ity to ac­com­mo­date all types of waste in a fi­nan­cially sound and en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly way mov­ing for­ward.

“Pre­dic­tions are that this tourism boom will con­tinue mak­ing the fu­ture of waste han­dling a chal­lenge for all in­volved,” Halldórs­son says, “a chal­lenge that we will con­tinue to work to over­come.”
