Enabling REuse, REmanufacturing and REcycling Within INDustrial systems (REWIND)

The REWIND project combines the principles of lean production and eco-efficiency in three industry pilots at Stena Recycling, Volvo AB and IKEA GreenTech. The objective is to retain the value embedded in materials with circular strategies (reuse, remanufacture, recycle, repurpose, etc.). Lessons learnt from the pilots will be used to develop educational tools for engineers and industry leaders to accelerate the uptake of best practices for circularity and sustainable production.

Impact of particles in production of particle sensitive systems pre-study for new requirements for new components

With the right knowledge about efficient handling and reduction of particle occurrence during production, you can use resources correctly, get rid of waste and get products that last longer. By using the right measures in the right place, you can reduce water, chemical and energy consumption, thereby creating sustainable production. By being able to evaluate the effect of particles, you can set the right requirements, so that today's and eventually tomorrow's products work longer without failure.

Polyfree 2.0

Cyclicor, which has its origins at Lund University, has in a previous project within Mistra Innovation successfully developed a method for producing the plastics polycarbonate (PC) and polyurethane (PU) without toxic additives. One goal of the Polyfree 2.0 project is to increase the production of the new plastics from lab scale to quantities that enable the participating industrial companies in turn to take steps towards finished products. Other goals are for the plastics to be recyclable as well as have the required properties.

SCARCE II – Sensible Value Chain through Digitalised Planning, Materialhandling and Circular Economy

SCARCE II will develop a demonstrator to show how SMEs and associated value flows can increase efficiency, competitiveness, sustainability and internal collaboration through digitalisation. The goal is to show the value of a new digital solution. SCARCE focuses on two subcontractors in the value chain linked to Scania and Volvo. The demonstrator is a cloud-based solution that connects three test beds in the industry; Stena Industry Innovation Lab, Chalmers, RISE IVF lab, Mölndal and KTH's test bed in Södertälje with the help of Siemens, AFRY, Qbim, Virtual Manufacturing and EQPack.
