Introduction to SPRINGBOARD®

The company has developed a novel material that uses waste destined for landfills, reducing the economic burden on both private and public sectors. They received an LOI from a public entity willing to build production facilities if they take their ashes. The material has unique properties, making it stronger and more fire-resistant with less material. However, production costs are high, and Denmark lacks the necessary facilities for large-scale production and testing. The company is seeking a cost-effective pilot line to produce elements for demonstrations and tests.


Areas for sparring

For this SPRINGBOARD®, panelists with competencies/experience within these themes, are needed for sparring (prioritised):

                                        1. The company needs consultation on escaping the cycle of being unable to produce demonstration projects and validate their product through regulatory tests due to a lack of appropriate production facilities. They have manually produced smaller elements but now need to scale up to prove their product.

                                        2. How can they minimize cost burdens while achieving production capability? Setting up even a small-capacity production line is costly, requiring them to secure soft funding or investment.

                                        3. Additionally, how can they gain acceptance in the conservative construction industry, which is reluctant to adopt new sustainable materials? Despite extensive outreach and positive feedback, stakeholders request a production-ready product to test.

                                        4. How can the company make a breakthrough and prove their worth in the current market?

                                          Company

                                          Innovates in sustainable building materials, specializing in plasterboards. These products not only reduce landfill waste but also utilize less natural gypsum, aligning with sustainability goals.


                                          Product/Service

                                          The plasterboards have lower co2 impact, with increased performance, enhance fire resistance, and are lighter yet stronger than traditional materials.


                                          Solution

                                          Addresses waste issues effectively in both public and private sectors. The company essentially utilizes ash waste that would otherwise end up in landfills. This circular economic model is not only economically advantageous for the company as they get free raw materials, but also results in a more effective plasterboard that is lighter and has superior performance parameters.


                                          Business Model

                                          Exploring both licensing and full production models, with a preference for a scalable modular production unit for direct sales to construction projects.


                                          Customers

                                          Primary customers include entities involved in new construction and renovation projects across commercial and public sectors, with the public sector showing a willingness to pay a premium for materials with a lower CO2 impact.


                                          Market

                                          Focuses on green, sustainable building materials with emphasis on reducing CO2 emissions.
