Purpose and goal

The purpose of the project has been to investigate the potential of a new system for organic waste streams and to create a consortium for future development. Interviews and meetings with stakeholders have increased understanding of needs, obstacles and driving forces for new solutions. Market analyzes have demonstrated the potential and great opportunities to commercialize the idea. During the project, cooperation within the consortium has been strengthened and dialogues about cooperation in other projects has been initiated, also with additional actors.

Expected results and effects

In the project we have mapped actors throughout the value chain via meetings and interviews. Market analysis has confirmed the need for cost effective and circular solutions for organic waste in Sweden and globally. Prototypes have been produced for testing and to verify biotechnology with positive results. A prototype of a digital platform has been developed to collect data and secure the quality in logistics and processes. The project has shown several new business opportunities. At the next stage, business models will be developed and products designed for different applications.

Planned approach and implementation

Habermann Design has coordinated the project through both major workshops and smaller meetings with fewer parties. Cooperation and communication have worked well and the project has developed faster than expected. Prototypes have been developed and tested with users. SLU has done laboratory-scale tests with positive results. Study visits, participation in conferences and several meetings with relevant actors have led to an increased understanding of technical and economic drivers as well as helped to identify potential for commercialization of the system.
