The worlds first CO2 positive data center
EcoDataCenter launched the world's first carbon dioxide positive data center in 2018 and has a wide range of services that combine security and flexibility with a high level of sustainability from several aspects. The facility in Falun is built entirely out of wood and powered 100% by renewable energy sources. The surplus heat generated by the data center is utilized by municipally owned Falu Energi & Vatten, either directly for heating or as an important ingredient in the manufacturing of biofuel. This makes it a unique solution that truly ensures the data center's sustainable standards. In addition to this, the facility has an extremely high level of physical and technical safety.
