Ongoing research projects

CE@KTH is involved in several national and international projects related to circular economy.

CATALY(C)ST : Youth Change makers as catalysts for a transition to a sustainable circular economy.

Circular Economy initiative at KTH (CE@KTH) joins hands with Nordic partners in the project “CATALY(C)ST: Youth Change Makers as Catalysts for a Transition to a Sustainable Circular Economy” co-funded by the Nordic Innovation with support from the Nordic Council of Ministers. It involves partners from five Nordic countries: Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland. This project is part of the Nordic Prime Ministers vision for Nordic cooperation: The Nordic countries are to become the most integrated, sustainable region in the world by 2030, emphasizing green (circular and biobased), competitive and socially inclusive societies.

ReCiPSS: Resource-efficient Circular Product-Service Systems (EU- H2020)

ReCiPSS refers to Resource-efficient Circular Product-Service Systems which is an EU funded project in the H2020 innovation action. Overarching goal of the project is to demonstrate implementation of circular manufacturing systems addressing different aspects of the industrial and business environment. Two large scale demonstrators include case studies from white goods and automotive sector represented by project partners Gorenje and Bosch. The project gathers together 13 partners from 8 countries and is being coordinated by KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden with support from a unique consortium of experts from four research and nine industrial partners.

Material Passport: A digital platform for manufacturing industry to implement Circular Production Systems (CEPort)

Transition towards circular economy (CE) through implementing Circular Production Systems (CPS) has become inevitable to mitigate challenges of resource scarcity and resource price volatility as well as ensure sustainable development. Furthermore, there is a huge economic potential for the industry to be tapped through high quality value recovery in the form of products or materials by implementing CPS. However, one of the challenges with implementation of CPS is to ensure integration and flow of information across the value chains so that right value recovery activities can be performed efficiently to recover value. To address this challenge, the project assesses the applicability of the concept of 'material passport' in the manufacturing industry.
