1 Day 1 Before the Conference started a field trip to Boliden Rönnskär was arranged for those that had arrived early. After the registration and a nice lunch the visitors started to find a chair in the conference hall. Everyone was exited to find out more about the circular materials venue.

2 The Chairman of Georange, Lennart Gustavsson opened the expo with a welcoming speech. The official opening of the venue was done by the Mayor of Skellefteå, Bert Öhlund. In his presentation he showed how Skellefteå was working with sustainability both in terms of green thinking and reusability. Kajsa Hedberg, VP Portfolio Management and M&A, Skellefteå kraft then took the stand to talk about how they contribute to a Sustainable Skellefteå. An important aspect of Skellefteå Kraft s corporate culture is the respect for our environment. We aim to be a leading force in generating electricity from renewable energy sources in a profitable way.

3 Ingrid Näsström, CEO Kuusakoski Sverige AB and Oskar Stavrén, jointly presented the history of their nearly 90year in operations and how they work to make the world greener. Olof Boman, Manager - Secondary Raw Material Purchases, Boliden was given the opportunity to take the stand and give some short introduction about Boliden as Roger Sundqvist was unable to attend this first day. Fredrik Ardefors, Consortis Miljöansvar AB, who was the moderator at this meeting, started off the second theme of today: Perspective on circular materials supply (political, sustainable, business)

4 Anders Wijkman, Opinion Leader, Author, chaiman Ål, started off this theme by addressing the issue with the statement that Conventional economy is on a collision course with Nature. There is a need to move towards a circular economy. Pär Molander, Head of Corporate Sales, Commodities, SEB Merchant Banking, started his presentation with the statement: QE or Growth, you can t have both. For those that do not know what QE is, here comes the answer: (QE) is an unconventional monetary policy used by central banks to stimulate the national economy when standard monetary policy has become ineffective. A central bank implements quantitative easing by buying financial assets from commercial banks and other private institutions. Tomas Nylund, CEO,Gästrike återvinning was the next speaker on this theme. He pointed out that the development of waste managament systems in Sweden has been very successful and the results are unique from an international point of veiw. Today, waste is looked upon and used as a resource rather than a problem.

5 Roger Tifensee, Member of the Parliament, Centerpartiet, was the last speaker on this theme and spoke about a Swedish-European perspective on non-virgin materials supply. On the following coffee break there was an opportunity to network and further discuss what had been said by the speakers. Theme: Sustainability The next theme for the day was Sustainability where Anders Furbeck, Sustainability Manager, LKAB spoke about their focuses on sustainability.

6 Theme: WEEE Pascal Leroy, WEEE-Forum started up this theme. He meant that there is little information on type/composition of WEEE arising. This is a significant barrier to the advancement of sorting, separation, treatment and recovery of CRM which are dispersed with WEEE products and across the WEEE stream. Isak Öhrlund, Project Administrator at Elektronikåtervinning i Sverige then took the stand and spoke of the challenges of WEEE management and producer responsibility in both Sweden and Europe. Helena Castrén, Senior Responsible CSR Manager, Nokia meant that Nokia s product creation is guided by life cycle thinking but that Circular Economy needs a dialogue and a global view across-industry.

7 Cecilia Nord, Director Responsible Sourcing AB Electrolux, was the last speaker of the day but nevertheless the most passionate speaker when she talked about: Recycled material in consumer products a mental step change for consumers and companies alike. A panel discussion then followed on the topics WEEE and sustainability. In some way it really summarized the day as the discussions was more about what Bert Öhlund started off to talk about: Reusability Day 1 ended with a nice dinner and more networking at the tables

8 Day 2 Theme: Sustainability Ulla Grölund, Univ lector, Department of Civil, Environmental and Natural Resources Engineering, LTU opened up the second day of Future Circular Materials Expo. Maurits Van Camp, Director Umicore, was the second speaker of the day and meant that a Circular economy requires a systemwide approach focusing on sustainable mining methods, efficient design and use, substitution of critical metals, and recovery of metals from secondary sources. Jan-Olof Eriksson, CEO, Elkretsen, then took the stand and talked about sustainability and profitability prerequisites. He started off by talking about contradictions: - The waste definition is a problem when it comes to resources. BUT - A problem can become an asset over time. - It is an individual issue

9 Roger Sundqvist, General Manager Boliden Rönnskär gave us then an insight of the new E-Kaldo plant that started its operation in January This has increased the capacity for recycling of metals from e-scrap from 45,000 to 120,000 tons per year. Coffee break with networking Theme: Circular Materials Economy Research Report. After a nice cup of coffee Janis Salminen, VTT, started off the second theme of the day: Circular Materials Economy Research and talked about Recycling research in Finland.

10 Professor Britt-Marie Steenari, Chalmers then took the stand and raised the question if the vision Materials used in circular loops was realistic: Each generation uses the materials in products but returns the materials to future generations and that preparations for recycling must be a part of the design of products and production processes. Jonas Brändström, Vinnova, Then talked about the societal challenges driving research and innovation. He meant that in order to move into a more Circular economy there is a need for more investments in R&I, stimulate increased interaction in the system, global cooperation, challenge driven innovation and new business models. Professor Conrad Luttropp, KTH continued on the topic with the conclusion: We need: a) A new business model to handle the fact that cost and benefit are dislocated b) Local disassembly closer to waste sources c) Transport of material not waste products

11 Theme: Circular Materials, Business Applications Mats Holmgren, Swedish Foundry Industry /Swerea SWECAST AB then took the stand and talked about Composting foundry sand for growing mixtures. He also meant that regulations should be globally harmonized and not distort free competition Markus Reuter, Technical Director Outotec, presented a report that was recently published around the topic: Metal Recycling Opportunities, Limits, Infrastructure. You can find the report here Jonas Gurell, Research leader, Swerea/Kimab, made a presentation of a new method for an On-line material analysis using laser spectroscopy which: - Optimize the recycling - Increase the energy efficiency of the production processes - Develop and use the best material for each application

12 Theme: Technical and commercial outlook Göran Carlsson, CEO Swerea Mefos, Started off the fourth theme of the day by showing their pilot plant and talk about the Swerea group. Phär Oscár, Director of Business Development Stena Metall Group, he made a presentation about Enforcement and Compliance in the Recycling Industry, The conclusion of his experience is that: Lennart Gustavsson, Chairman Georange, then took the stand and gave his thought around Recycling. The important thing is that we are able to use the metals that we have produced in a smart way and use them again and again. For it is in this context, the recovery industry comes in. We need to develop intelligent systems in which we ensure that the metals are recycled.

13 Theme: Sustainability Björn Grufman, Chairman of BIR, the world federation of recycling industries, then talked about sustainability and meant that in order for this to happen a couple of things has to be in place : clear, coherent and shared resource efficiency indicators Sound regulatory framework A panel discussion then took place and more or less agreed on what had been said today: - Free and fair trade - Clear laws and regulations to be put in place Day 2 ended with a dinner at Maskinhuset, Sävenäs. A Wilderness Buffét of moose, reindeer, arctic char, potatoes, onion and vegetables.

14 Day 3 Maria Ågren, Director General Swedish Environmental Protection Agency started off day 3 with a presentation around the topic: The recycling industry is vital for achieving our environmental objectives. Runar Brännlund, Umeå University then took the stand to talk about the value of recycling form Norrland s perspective. His conclusion was: - Let the market do the work - Policy should focus market failures Theme: How do politicians support the Circular business to create value and jobs? Gunnar Fredriksson, SKL, was given the opportunity to talk about household waste and what this generates today: ton recycling material ton bio fertilizers MWh biofuel 13,5 TWh heat 2 TWh electricity

15 After the coffee break a political panel was debating the issue of circular material and the waste proposition that was to be launched by the government. The moderator Lennart Gustavsson tried his best to keep this discussion between, Gunnar Fredrikssson, SKL, and the politicians, Crister Akej, M, Johan Löfström, S and Helena Leander, MP on a sound level. Georange would like to thank all speakers and participants for hopefully a prosperous continuation on these matters. A big thanks also to Jan Ots and Nordic Publishing for organizing this expo - all the presentations will be available on our homepage Photo and text: Lars Mikaelsson
