Important results from the project

The project aimed to develop a business model, and in demonstration projects verifying the technology under different conditions, as well as investigating other industries need of the technology and how and to what extent the technology can be further developed. The goal of the project was to establish the technology to the Swedish market. All targets have been met and the project has shown that the technology has great potential to become market-changing in both the construction industry as for many other industries, even abroad.

Expected long term effects

The project has shown that our technology meets the regulatory requirements, as well as for stormwater as for the types of process water treated in the project. Furthermore, the project has shown that the technology is easy to set up and operate, resulting in significantly lower costs compared to technology that until now has been available on the market. As the technology verified in this project, our company and technology has received much attention, which in turn led to new, commercial projects in both the construction businesses and industrial projects.

Approach and implementation

The project approach was linked to our company´s initial business plan, which gave the project a clear purpose and a natural way to push the project forward. The business model gave us a strategy to focus on the right markets and the right customers. In the selection process from the business model we found those customers where we could implement our demonstration project, which also had an impact outward to other potential customers. Since the technology could be tested in demonstration projects, it gave a natural opportunity for the development and improvement of the technology.
