Adaptation of innovative particle production technology for environmental manufacturing
Purpose and goal
The project aims to develop a business for an innovative particle production technology to prepare semiconductor materials using both primary and secondary sources. The developed technology is suitable to adopt as a final step to recover indium in flat panel display recycling. The main goal of the project is validation of the indium oxide and indium tin oxide product properties and zero CO2 emission of the process on bench scale demonstration.
Expected results and effects
The project will clarify the crucial drivers of the business and lead the business idea to the next level for the up scaling of the technology. The results will be used to solve the raw material supply of the Swedish and European companies in semiconductor coating industry. The start-up will support the sustainable development and assist the climate action of the UN2030 Agenda by not only its technology, but also its business model. The company will apply the project results to create new gender equal job opportunities in different levels of material production and recycling sectors.
Planned approach and implementation
The project plan includes two main work packages related to product validation and market development. (i) The semiconductor particle product properties and production rate will be investigated by a bench scale process, and the results will be used to simulate the theoretical production capacity of the process to design the up-scaled process. (ii) The stakeholder chain will be analyzed, and revenue model for the application of technology and marketing of the products will be verified.
