|Venture||Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation|
|Call||Challenge-Driven Innovation - Stage 1 Initiation 2018 (spring)|
Purpose and goal
The aim of the project is to allow more efficient and cleaner global utilization of ash-rich fuels, including agro-residuals, for electric power generation with possibilities for generation of ashes, suitable for up-grading to valuable products, by utilization of innovative Swedish small scale combined heat and power technology. These fuels can then substitute fossil fuels for electricity generation more efficiently and at lower cost.
Expected results and effects
The market in Sweden, Cambodia, China and Vietnam have been identified; Applications with most promising potential have been identified; Needs and conditions for introduction on a global market have been mapped; Relevant actors for further innovation co-operation have been identified; A draft consortium agreement covering intellectual property rights is available; A plan for further development and implementation of the solution has been formulated.
Planned approach and implementation
Design, implementation and analysis are based on product market assessments, possible performance of the innovative processes, remaining R & D needs, competing alternatives, commitment from commercial technology providers, and opportunities to find appropriate demonstration sites, and identify the process and application shown as the most promising.
