The objective of the work package is to prepare the technology and the commercializing partners of the AUSOM consortium for market introduction by defining a business model, a business plan and a commercialization strategy based on data driven insights gathered during the project duration, both from key market near project partners [SPECTRAL Industries, Redwave and Galloo] and external stakeholders.
- Task 0.1: Go-to-market preparation
- Task 0.2: Go-to-market development
- Task 0.3: Go-to-market strategy: preparing for launch
WP1 deals with coordination of the project, and is designed as an effective structural framework for all partners to ensure a proper accomplishment of the project activities. WP1 will ensure that the project meets its objectives within the budget and scheduled time frame.
- Task 1.1: Scientific and technical
- Task 1.2: Risk management coordination
- Task 1.3: Administrative management
To maximize the impact of the AUSOM project by making its results available to a wide range of stakeholders.
- Task 2.1: Communication and dissemination activities
- Task 2.2: Learning and education
Based on refined specifications for first application cases with relevant potential markets, WP3 aims at providing a system design concept that defines the development and technical verification of subsystems in WP4 and their integration into a sensor-based sorting system in WP5. This will involve the engagement and interplay of all the partners.
- Task 3.1: Refined specifications
- Task 3.2: System layout
- Task 3.3: Definition of qualification tests
Up-scaling and specifying sensing and sorting subsystems by improving their performance/price ratio taking into account the anticipated commercialization of the final integrated product. Optimizing a state-of-the-art sensor-based sorting system at a breakthrough price/performance ratio!
- Task 4.1: Material feeder
- Task 4.2: LIBS sensor
- Task 4.3: LIBS data analysis
- Task 4.4: Data fusion
- Task 4.5: Sorting techniques
The aim of WP 5 is to combine sub-systems developed in WP4 into a single sensor-based sorting equipment. The equipment will be tested in a controlled but relevant environment at Redwave facilities to provide critical feedback on needed areas of improvements before demonstrations can be performed in pilot environments in WP6.
- Task 5.1: Mechanical design
- Task 5.2: Hardware assembly
- Task 5.3: Software assembly
- Task 5.4: Tests
- Task 5.5: Preparation of the pilot line
Demonstrating the sensor-based sorting equipment assembled in WP5 in an operational production environment in a pilot line at the facilities of Galloo. The sorting system will undergo short and long-term testing to verify the technical and commercial viability of the innovative AUSOM solution.
- Task 6.1 Integration of the sensor-based sorting equipment into the pilot line
- Task 6.2: Short-term and long-term tests
- Task 6.3: Technology evaluation
A material flow analysis will be performed for the sorting processes developed in prior work packages Through a detailed analysis of both the input stream and the different output fractions, the efficiency of the separation process will be determined based on the material composition of the incoming flow and the achievable yield and purity of the recovered material.
- Task 7.1: Material flow analysis
- Task 7.2: Cost-benefit analysis and optimization
- Task 7.3: Life-cycle (environmental) impact assessment
