Jegrelius continues its collaboration with the Environmental Innovation Competition!
For the last few years, Jegrelius has been an active partner in the Environmental Innovation Competition, the purpose of which is to highlight and publicise Swedish environmental innovations to a broad public. The aim is that businesses and innovators will be provided with support and advice during the development of a commercial product. In 2009’s competition, one of Jegrelius’ ambitions is to organise a workshop on the theme of Innovations in Green Chemistry, along with Region Halland, in order to highlight the potential of this clean tech area. If you or your company is interested in taking part, please contact Sven Wadman at Jegrelius.More information about the competition and how to enter is available at www.miljoinnovation.se

Follow-up to the Smarter Product Selection Workshop
Jegrelius thanks all those who participated in the Smarter Product Selection Workshop for a successful event. Those people who did not have the opportunity to take part now have the opportunity to read the documentation from the workshop.

Representatives from public and private arenas gathered to listen to lectures about concepts such as Clean Tech, Cradle to Cradle and a number of good business examples, as well as to take part in themed discussions on 20-21 April in Åre.
