Håkan Carlsson, PhD student at the Department of Signal Processing at the Royal Institute of Technology and member of WASP, has won the BillerudKorsnäs sustainability challenge. Håkan Carlsson’s winning entry focused on how to increase the reuse of paper products in society. His concept is a robot controlled system for recycling, which offers a technical solution to a social challenge with recycling.

BillerudKorsnäs AB is a Swedish pulp and paper manufacturer. The company invites students from all over the world to participate in the sustainability challenge, and this year the competition had several hundred participants.
