Innovation Potentials of Using Solvent-free Industrial Cleaning in Swedish Manufacturing Industry
2008 (English)In: Proceedings of Sustainable Innovation 08 - Future products, technologies and industries: 13th International Conference part of the ‘Towards Sustainable Product Design’ series of conferences, 27-28 October 2008, Malmö, Sweden, 2008Conference paper (Refereed)
In this research collaboration project between SMEs and academia a new way of cleaning machine parts have been developed. The cleaning company Servicestaden and researchers at Linköping University have discovered new ways of cleaning without the use of solvents. In the research project called ‘Solvent-Free Industrial Cleaning’ (SOFIQ) it has been found that cleaning with the SOFIQ-technology is more environmentally sound than with traditional cleaning techniques. However, there is a major challenge to keep up the pace of cleaning within manufacturing since it often have high demands of short lead times. This is a challenge that will be constraining the use of the method.
