From Waste to Gold , in Swedish: Från spill till guld
Summary
The project aim was a 30% reduction of unused industrial metalworking, powder coating and textile sectors residues. It developed practical and theoretical solutions to fulfill this; and evaluated commercial viability for a multi-sector, web-based, residue brokerage and innovation platform. Analyses show that know ledge and technical capacities within key material cycling chains remain inadequate for this and that no consortium members or 3rd parties w ished to pursue the platform. The project recommends therefore concentrating on service(s) supporting innovation. The project delineated success-prerequisites for an industrial residue platform, and a service for stimulating links betw een residue generators/users, and system innovation. It developed a model to reduce hazardous substances transfer in textile recycling, and performed textilerecycling pilots. It successfully tested reduction, and reuse, of pow der coating residuals and identified barriers to pow der recovery. Investigations of foundry metal dust reuse, and sheet metal w aste reduction, w ere delivered. These outputs will underpin future material-cycle closure efforts. Independent w ork w ithin each material group combined w ith cross-sector meetings and experience exchange proved successful, and an active reference group contributed constructive critique. The research consortium addressed sector-specific challenges successfully and developed and evaluated solutions to reduce w aste, and increase recycling and reuse. Cross-sector efforts have created ideas and proposals for future technical and know ledge-based solutions. The project has established a netw ork that w ill contribute to the future development of circular economy.
