New website launched at LTU

Published: 14 May 2013

The new website is a collection of reports and research on the subject of "Secondary materials in a sustainable society"

Some of the challenges we face in terms of energy and raw materials and the environment is about tomorrow´s materials supply for community building. The significant flows of secondary materials that are generated in todays society can be a potential resource for future construction.

- Our ambition is to make it easier for stakeholders such as municipalities and builders to find the right information quickly and easily, says Bo Svedberg,  LTU. There is a lot of research done in these areas, but to find relevant information has been very difficult when the information was spread in many different places. We hope that the portal Secondary materials in a sustainable society will be a support for those planning new plants, says Bo Svedberg.

Evelina Brännvall, PhD in Waste Technology at the university, says: - In this area, my group and my colleagues at the university have a long and solid experience. It will be an exciting and instructive exercise to compile it in this format.

Today we launch the web portal for the recycling of old car tires.

Here you will find the web portal:


The web portal is a collaboration between Luleå University of Technology, Ecoloop, Svensk Däckåtervinning and Ragn-Sells.
