(FINLAND)

Emission-free living is being trialled this summer on the island of Vallisaari near Helsinki.

Renewable fuel producer Neste is behind the Nolla Cabin – Nolla means zero – from Finnish designer Robin Falck. Constructed with sustainable materials, it is ‘designed for a simple lifestyle’ Neste said in a news release. People are asked to let it inspire ideas for sustainable living.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel, which comes from 100% waste and residue, and can reduce emissions by up to 90%, powers the stove; while solar panels provide energy for the Nolla Cabin.

 

“Finns are known for spending time at their beloved summer houses. We wanted to explore sustainable solutions that could enable cabin life with minimal emissions. Shared and circular economy, as well as new technologies and innovations have made it possible to enjoy our cabins without harming or burdening the environment. Some of the solutions that have been used at the Nolla cabin are perfectly adaptable at any cabin,” said Sirpa Tuomi, Marketing Director at Neste.

 

The mobile cabin will be on Vallisaari until September.
