Swedish Industry gathers for second time
On October 21, some of Sweden's largest companies will once again gather at the Circular Initiative event to drive efforts towards achieving a more circular economy. This year, a major new development will be presented that is the result of innovative collaboration between Electrolux and Stena Recycling.
“When you start thinking circular economy, new ideas and opportunities arise for developing solutions and products. We are coming up with new services and areas for improvement – things that contribute to both business operations and the environ-ment. For example, new materials, the sharing economy and the ability to replace individual components instead of entire products.”
This according to Robin Teigland, one of the keynote speakers at the Circular Initiative 2020. The Circular Initiative is a collaborative arena initiated by Stena Recycling. Within this forum, companies work together to contribute to the creation of more circular material flows in society and industry, by highlighting common goals, innovations and technological development.
Several innovative collaborative projects were carried out during the year. One example is that ABB, together with Stena Recycling, has developed a complete circular solution for electric motors in industry. Another is a collaborative project with Electrolux that has led to a major development that will be presented at this year’s event. More about this in the next issue of SfärNytt.
During the year, Stena Recycling held several workshops together with other companies in the Circular Initiative. The goal is to find concrete solutions for circular material flows in industry and society.
