Purpose and goal

Our purpose has been to, together with a final customer, SKANSKA, verify that our technology works better than existing in their work environment, thereby solving many of the problems currently in place. We have, through an evaluation, demonstrated that SKANSKA can make the handling of dust particles more effective, increase productivity, significantly improve the working environment, minimize filter changes and thus creating better continuity in production with great savings as a consequence. SKANSKA has shown a great interest in using the technology after further evaluations.

Expected results and effects

We have shown SKANSKA that our technology can solve the inefficient ways of air purification that exist today. These problems reduce their productivity and create unhealthy work environments. They have shown an interest in changing technology after further evaluations. Already in autumn 2018 we have the opportunity of a long-term test/evaluation of the technology in different construction sites of SKANSKA in Kalmar. We have also contacted other players in the construction industry who might be interested in evaluating the technology.

Planned approach and implementation

We have demonstrated and evaluated our technology with an end user, SKANSKA. During the period December 2016 to November 2017, upon the advice of Johan Skarendahl, we met different representatives of SKANSKA to convince them that our new technology can solve various problems with particle separation in the construction industry. After successfully demonstrating the technology in April 2017, it took until November before SKANSKA was able to present a construction site where we could evaluate the technology. The result was very positive and SKANSKA wishes to continue the evaluation.
