Purpose and goal
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 results and 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.
Planned 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.
