We are constantly conducting research in order to be one step ahead and create new value in resource management. We aim to ensure the sustainable recycling of waste from industry and local authorities into the future. Read about our objectives and extensive research.

Accountability

With our partners, our focus is on exploring how we can become better at taking care of all the materials in circulation. We see value in all materials and discarded products - everything from cars to mobile phones. By constantly developing new, smarter solutions we are aiming to create sustainable resource management that combines profitability with clear environmental benefits.

Everyone benefits from research that leads to the more efficient recycling of more materials. Not only is it more cost-effective to use recycled materials, it consumes less energy than producing new raw material. As well as this, it contributes to the creation of a circular economy and a sustainable society that conserves the earth's limited resources.

Every day, the volume of material we recycle is equivalent to the weight of two Eiffel Towers. But we are far from satisfied. Through a variety of research projects, we continue to take small but significant steps towards more intelligent resource management. Research helps us fulfill our ambition to create the most value for our partners and the environment.

 

University research

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.
