Plastform - digital plattform for exchange of waste material

Reference number
Funding from Vinnova SEK 498 848
Project duration November 2016 - June 2017
Status Completed
Venture Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation

Important results from the project

The solution is a digital platform that connects companies waste materials with the demand of manufacturing companies. The aim has been to identify the needs of partner companies etc. Questionnaires to SPIFs and IKEM members have given increased understanding of waste amounts, costs and wishes. The project, together with all project partners, has developed key requirements for the platform.

Expected long term effects

According to our survey, plastic companies today have a specific amount of waste that need to be handled. This requires time but also financial resources. According to Mälarplast, efficient use of the platform could reduce the combustible material by 25-30%. The unique thing is that plastic manufacturers come close to the source of the waste, which gives them access to a range of pure plastic with very high traceability, which in turn greatly increases the ability to use the waste for new plastic products where another company may have the right product type.

Approach and implementation

GAP analysis of four platforms and a platform project (Oogskaart, Recycla, Hyllvärmare, Off2Off och Pi-Skalp) has been done through interviews with responsible persons. Additional platforms have been mapped out using post consumer/postproducer on a vertical level and manual matching/auto-matching on a horizontal. Project participants have been interviewed regarding their business models and result has been placed on a business canvas. The results have been discussed in reference group with participants from Recycla, Naturskyddsföreningen, Rangsells, ABB and RISE.
