Enabling REuse, REmanufacturing and REcycling Within INDustrial systems (REWIND)

2019-2022

Circularity, Eco-efficiency, Recycling, Remanufacture, Reuse

The REWIND project combines the principles of lean production and eco-efficiency in three industry pilots at Stena Recycling, Volvo AB and IKEA GreenTech. The objective is to retain the value embedded in materials with circular strategies (reuse, remanufacture, recycle, repurpose, etc.). Lessons learnt from the pilots will be used to develop educational tools for engineers and industry leaders to accelerate the uptake of best practices for circularity and sustainable production.

SCARCE II – Sensible Value Chain through Digitalised Planning, Materialhandling and Circular Economy

2020-2022

Automation, Circular Economy, Digitalization, Material Handling

SCARCE II will develop a demonstrator to show how SMEs and associated value flows can increase efficiency, competitiveness, sustainability and internal collaboration through digitalisation. The goal is to show the value of a new digital solution. SCARCE focuses on two subcontractors in the value chain linked to Scania and Volvo. The demonstrator is a cloud-based solution that connects three test beds in the industry; Stena Industry Innovation Lab, Chalmers, RISE IVF lab, Mölndal and KTH's test bed in Södertälje with the help of Siemens, AFRY, Qbim, Virtual Manufacturing and EQPack.
