Living Lab Sweden
On the 23-24th of October, a conference about industrial symbiosis is going to take place in Gothenburg along with the price giving for the Win Win Gothenburg Sustainability Award. The topic for this year’s price ceremony is “Collaboration in production”. The winner of the price in 2018 is Kalundborg Symbiosis from Denmark.
Fissac is going to be part of the program on the 23rd of October when the focus will mainly be on the building sector and circular material flows. Hifab AB is going to present FISSAC during the seminar, participate in the fair and will lead a workshop about working methods to increase circular material flows on the demolition site.
The conference is free of charge and is open for all who are interested, however, signing up is mandatory.

“AREA OF HAMMAREN” – A PRACTICAL EXAMPLE OF BUILDING AS MATERIAL BANK
Stena Fastigheter, Ikano Bostad and FISSAC are happy to invite you to Högsbo, Göteborg to a workshop that focuses on finding ways how to use buildings as material banks. The goal of the day is to discuss how to increase the recycling and reuse rates of building materials as well as avoid waste to landfill.
Date: September 27, 2018
Time: 9:00 – 15:30, including lunch
Place: Göteborgs Bryggerimuséum, J A Pripps gata 2
From the Agenda:
- Indtroduction of the property in Högsbo; study visit and information about commonly used materials
- Presentation by Material Economics about the report “Ett värdebeständigt svenskt materialsystem”
- Workshop/Group discussions: how can the material from demolition be used as a resource in efficient and sustainable manner
Stena Fastigheter and Ikano Bostad, that own the property in Högsbo, have an ambition to develop the property in a sustainable way. For property owner that means developing and building with a focus on resource efficiency and innovation. That work has already began. At the first stage of the project, the existing industrial building is being demounted in a way that the valuable materials available in the existing building could be reused in the new production.
Registration before 20th of September via email@example.com
Around 20 participants representing different stakeholders in the construction sector gathered on the 27th of October in Floda, a small town near Gothenburg, Sweden. One of the basics of the living lab process is to take the participants out from the familiar office environment, to the “field” and to the projects where circular economy principles are being implemented. The first living lab meeting was therefore hosted by Garveriet a Swedish pilot-case living lab that strives to become a centre of sustainable development and a hub of ecosystem-inspired businesses.
