Press Release   •   May 13, 2016 12:28 GMT

Envac has appointed Joakim Karlsson as CEO & President of Envac Group to replace Claes Scheibe. The change is effective as of May 5, 2016.

Joakim Karlsson has been President of Envac Business Region North Europe since February 2012 and member of the Group Executive Board.

“I am very pleased to appoint Joakim Karlsson as new CEO and President of Envac. His long experience in our company and in the clean-tech business, both from sales and marketing and as Regional President, makes him well suited to lead and further develop Envac as a leading environmental company” states Christer Öjdemark, Chairman of Envac AB.

Envac is one of the leading environmental technology companies in Sweden.

The company invented the automated waste transportation technology in the early 1960s and their systems can now be found all over the world – in residential areas, business premises, town centres, industrial kitchens, hospitals and airports.

Envac has 35 offices in 22 countries in North and South Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North and South America.

Envac's automated waste handling solutions represent sustainable, environmentally-sound management of waste, as the system is integrated with other infrastructure and services, such as electricity, sewer systems, district heating, district cooling and water, thus eliminating all open, manual handling. The environmental and efficiency gains from this technology are considerable, particularly for areas with large quantities of waste and strict hygiene requirements.
