Purpose and goal

The purpose and aim of the feasibility study were to investigate how Sotenäs municipality best can be used as a testbed for the prevention and recycling of marine waste and to lay the foundation for decisions on subsequent implementation projects. This has been achieved through the analyzes performed and linked to the identified strength areas found in the municipality, which has subsequently resulted in an implementation plan for an intended testbed.

Expected effects and result

The result of this feasibility study shows that the testbed possibility that best matches the needs identified during the market survey is linked to the marine recycling center that is currently established in Sotenäs municipality. A proposal has been prepared on an implementation plan for such a testbed. The implementation plan is divided into 5 work packages which include project management, business and business development of testbed, physical tests, innovation environment and communication.

Planned approach and implementation

The preliminary study was conducted with a broad perspective on the innovation area of a clean ocean through three main activities and a fourth activity for project management. The two analyzes, needs and market analysis and external analysis were carried out through both interviews and desktop analysis. As a result, areas of strength at Sotenäs municipality were identified, as well as the needs of potential testers and whether this is a unique testbed opportunity.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
