Progressing from the Material to the Immaterial Cycles of the Circular Industrial Economy
CE@KTH is delighted to invite you to the inaugural webinar of its monthly webinar series. The webinar will be delivered by Prof. Dr Walter R. Stahel who will present his vision for “Progressing from the Material to the Immaterial Cycles of the Circular Industrial Economy”. Prof. Dr Walter R. Stahel is the circular economy pioneer and is credited with inventing the concept of the circular economy in a paper published in 1982. The webinar will be hosted by CE@KTH on March-10th from 12:00 to 13:00 CET. After the 45 minutes seminar the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions.
Circular Procurement for a Sustainable Future
City governments spend a substantial amount of their annual expenditure procuring goods and services. Making this process more sustainable could therefore have a significant impact, even beyond countries’ own borders. But while circular procurement is a powerful tool for reducing environmental impacts, implementing it at a city level presents a number of challenges.

Life Cycle Assessment of Surface Mount Technology equipment (MyLCA)
Modern electronics industry is changing rapidly. Today’s electronics include complex circuit boards, highly advanced and miniaturized components using novel materials and dispensing media. The manufacturing of the products, in mixed production volumes and without compromising on quality, productivity and cost, is a key challenge in the industry. To address this challenge, Mycronic AB has developed automation machines for most aspects of the production process. Mycronic’s Surface Mount Technology (SMT) machines locate, load, mount, and trace these advanced components. With the emergence of stricter environmental regulations and increased awareness about sustainability, Mycronic is interested in understanding the environmental impacts of its products.
CATALY(C)ST Youth Advisory Board
The ambition of the Youth Advisory Group is to have at a minimum one representative from each project partner represented, representing each one of the participating countries (Island, Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark). The idea of the establishment of the board is to ensure the youth perspective and voice is represented in the activities and methods that are developed as part of the CATALY(C)ST project. Further, the group will co-lead the establishment of a Nordic CATALY(C)ST Community with the focus on Circular Economy.

Scania Circular Business: Scania’s journey towards the circular economy
CE@KTH is delighted to invite you to attend the webinar “Scania Circular Business: Scania’s journey towards the circular economy” with Paulina Edblad Granholm, Senior Business Development Manager at Scania, Sweden. Paulina Edblad Granholm will share how Scania is approaching the circular economy transition (CET), including actions taken, progress, barriers faced and challenges ahead. She will touch upon how Scania is conciliating the CET with other mega-transitions in the transportation industry such as decarbonization, electrification, autonomous solutions and digitalization. Her mission is to connect the big picture to the everyday activities. As an example she will share the journey within Scania Parts & Service and especially the Parts packaging quest towards sustainability through circularity and digitalisation.
An alternative to the disposable economy
Continued economic growth requires an alarming – and arguably unsustainable – amount of raw material and energy. But what if there was a way to rein in production, without slowing down the economy?
Remanufacturing and the Circular Economy
CE@KTH is delighted to invite you to attend the webinar entitled “Remanufacturing and the Circular Economy” with Dr. Nabil Nasr. In this webinar, Dr. Nasr will discuss remanufacturing, a key technology enabler for circular economy, including its definition, benefits, history, and economics. Remanufacturing research and future trends will also be highlighted. Furthermore, An overview of the recently established REMADE Institute in the US will also be provided. This institute focuses its efforts on driving down the cost of technologies essential to reuse, recycle and remanufacture materials such as metals, fibers, polymers and electronic waste and aims to achieve significant improvement in energy efficiency in materials manufacturing by 2027.

Quantitative analysis of Circular Economy strategies
“In spite of presenting a large body of literature on CE in general, only a small but growing body of literature exists on the net effects of CE strategies from a quantitative perspective” (IPCC Sixth Assessment Report, 2022) There is a strong need to equip industry with tools and methods to help them make better decisions when designing and implementing CE strategies and CE@KTH is already moving in this direction.
