The project provided Swedish foundry industry with the means to achieve a sustainable transition with maintained competitiveness. The aim of the project is to give Swedish foundries tools for a sustainable transition through more efficient use of resources.
There is a high awareness within Swedish foundry industry that a sustainable transition is both necessary and desirable and that it to a high extent will affect energy consumption and carbon footprint as well as the handling of raw materials and residues.
The project was divided into three work packages. The first examined how a higher resource efficiency can be achieved for the energy consumption for a given cast component and production process. Starting with a given cast product, the second investigated means to achieve a higher resource efficiency in the production process itself. In the third, the perspective was further broadened as the use phase of the cast component was included in the discussion.
