Novozymes has its own wastewater and biogas plant, which utilizes the resources in the residuals from the production to produce electricity, heat and high-value fertilizer.

In the official Symbiosis Center was established: At the biogas plant biogas is produced and upgraded to natural gas quality through a refining process where carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide are removed from the product. In the following years, the Symbiosis received increasing international attention from academia especially Yale University and practitioners wishing to work with industrial symbiosis.

Environmental and societal benefits. For example when leftovers from the production becomes NovoGro 30 fertilizer or when spent process water is used to produce biogas and electricity. Inden udledning til naturen ledes det rensede spildevand fra Forsyningen igennem en varmeveksler ved varmepumpen.
