EasyMining wins prestigious engineering award

The EasyMining Team 2023

The innovation company EasyMining has won the Swedish "Stora Ingenjörspriset Innovation" (Great Engineering Prize in Innovation) for its work in transitioning from research to implementation and thereby contributing to reducing the carbon footprint in food production. The award was presented at the ceremony in Stockholm on November 23, 2023.

- We are incredibly glad and proud that the jury recognises the work of our entire team. At EasyMining, a variety of engineering disciplines come together. From chemistry to process, mechanics to automation, and industrial economics, we demonstrate that groundbreaking success is created through the interaction of these different expert areas, says Jan Svärd, CEO of EasyMining.

EasyMining receives the award for successfully transitioning from research to implementation, notably with three of their patented methods for recovery and recycling the three essential nutrients crucial for agricultural fertilisers – Ash2Phos for phosphorus, Aqua2N for nitrogen, and Ash2Salt for potassium.

- If we are serious about creating a sustainable society, we must start using the raw materials we already have, over and over again. Many critical raw materials are already abundant in our waste but never get utilised. We are making these available now, says Jan Svärd.

Jury's justification:

An innovation award can be based on various criteria, such as innovation level, degree of implementation, economics, and societal benefit, to name a few. This year's recipient of the “Stora Ingenjörspriset i innovation” has demonstrated that research results can be used and implemented, with a purpose that greatly benefits societies worldwide. Today, food production has a significant carbon footprint, and Team EasyMining has shown that by cycling nutrients and other essential resources from sewage sludge, the impact can be significantly reduced.

The "Stora Ingenjörspriset" was established in 2021 by Linti Group. The award is presented in six categories: Leadership, Innovation, Inclusion, Sustainability, Role Model of the Year, and Student Award. It was created to honour engineers who tirelessly work to solve problems, big and small, and make the world a slightly better place for all of us. The purpose of the award is to celebrate, motivate, and highlight engineers or a team that has done something outstanding.
