|Venture||Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation|
Purpose and goal
The situation regarding handling of flyash from incineration of solid municipal waste has changed since the writing of the proposal, which is why the work in the project has changed. These changes have been communicated to and approved by Vinnova. At the end of the project, there is no formal consortium as was planned. Instead, a few different smaller groups of stake-holders have formed. The issue of fly ash from MSWI has come to a new, more concrete, stage and there are ongoing discussions directly between energy companies and downstream stakeholders.
Expected results and effects
The result of the project is a cluster of stakeholders consisting of energy companies, ash handlers and technology companies. They have identified two main types of key issues that have to be solved: issues of a research type, with which they will move forward in joint projects, and more technical issues, which they will solve in smaller groups having common prerequisites, in order to implement relevant technologies.
Planned approach and implementation
During the initial phase of the project, work focussed on identifying stakeholders to contact and also how we should approach them and identify possible roles for them in a fly ash consortium. At a lunch-to-lunch workshop in April, "old" and "new" stakeholders met physically. The physical meeting and the ample time for discussions (formal and informal) given during the evening and dinner on day 1 of the WS played important roles for the now continued, ongoing and direct discussions between the different companies in the cluster.
