The SKF-Chalmers University Technology Centre (UTC) for Sustainability is a new innovative partnership. The centre focuses on industry-based research within the field of sustainability, a core area for both SKF and Chalmers.

Located at the division of Environmental Systems Analysis (Miljösystemanalys)Chalmers, Gothenburg, the UTC conducts research and development across a broad range of sustainability topics including:

  • Resource productivity and life cycle management

  • Sustainable production and consumption

  • Sustainable business processes and strategies. 

Currently we have four main projects. For example, one is researching strategies for "End-of-life" products, whilst another examines how a company can organise its processes and functions to develop life cycle management.

Read more about the ongoing projects on the projects page. The pages will be updated on an ongoing basis.
