Our research

Research equipment

We believe in the power of collaboration. We are developing recycling solutions in projects with customers and leading universities.

Unique research on a broad front

Research into recycling is all too rare, but not with us! On the contrary, we are engaged in research and development on a broad front. In fact, our research platform is unique - even from an international perspective. In collaboration with the broader business community, universities and other partners, we are conducting a series of research projects to solve future recycling needs and ensure the intelligent management of resources.

Our extensive research network is also an asset for our customers. It provides them with unique expertise on materials and the best way to take care of them. We seek research funding, in collaboration with many customers, to initiate and run projects that result in new methods for efficient recycling.

Since 2007, we have funded a professorship in industrial recycling at Chalmers University in Gothenburg. The professorship recently celebrated ten years, and we will continue this project, now with an added focus on energy technology. In these few years, we have managed to bring together a dedicated professorship, an interdisciplinary center of excellence and research into waste technology from researchers all over Sweden.

With several of our stakeholders, we have started other centers of excellence. The Waste Refinery and Competence Center Recycling focuses on finding new solutions to increase recycling and improve the energy recovery of materials that cannot be recycled. We are also involved in RE: Source, a strategic innovation program that aims to make Sweden a world leader in waste minimization by finding new ways to recycle more materials.
