Automated system for monitoring of virus and bacteria

Robots in the service of society for protection during the next pandemic!

During viral- and bacterial outbreaks action must be taken swiftly before an outbreak spreads. A new virus can be detected using PCR technology almost as soon as it has been sequenced, which for example for SARS COV2 was done long before the virus reached Swedish borders during the last pandemic. An automatic monitoring system would thus have allowed to rapidly control the spread of the virus. StromTech has recieved funding from Vinnova (national innovation agency) to build a prototype (TRL 6) of a networked robot which can monitor pathogens in water. The work is performed in collaboration with Industridoktorn partner Miljösus AB. For more information, visit

Algae based dye for non-toxic dyeing of fabrics with a low CO2 footprint

How Mounid wants to solve fabric dyeing in the future

In collaboration with several partners in the textile industry, Industridoktorn (Miljösus AB & StromTech Sweden AB) develops novel non-toxic fabric dyes based on microalgae for Swedish company Mounid ( Development is funded by Vinnova (national innovation agency).

A combined photobiological and photochemical production platform for sustainable jet fuels from CO2

Microalgae or cyanobacteria?

Funded by Energimyndigheten (Swedish Energy Agency) Industridoktorn (AddScience Sweden AB, Miljösus AB and StromTech Sweden AB) will assist in development of a sustainable jet fuel from cyanobacteria. The project is of a fundamental research character and performed in collaboration with Processum and four internationally prominent research groups at Uppsala University (Ångström laboratory) led by Pia Lindberg, Peter Lindblad, Karin Stensjö and Henrik Ottosson. Industridoktorn performs cultivations to evaluate the ability of the cyanobacteria Synechocystis, a common freshwater-cyanobacteria, to tolerate high intensity cultivation with elevated CO2 or flue gas as carbon source.

Competence centre for Marine Materials, CCMM

Materials in and from the marine environment

The CCMM vision is sustainable materials in and from our oceans. CCMM will help the industry extend this vision and identify research areas with future potential. CCMM strives to become one of the european “blue labs” which will create “blue careers” in materials science related to the marine environment, with support structure for testing, implementation and upscaling of novel technology in resource intensive industries. The CCMM scope includes research in: Materials for use in the marine environment. Improved and novel materials with biobased raw materials from the oceans. CCMM is coordinated by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden together with a project group consisting of KTH, Innovatum, Göteborg university, Wargön Innovation and Industridoktorn to establish CCMM. Industrial communication on needs and research topics is provided by our 12 industrial partners in CCMM. Funding provided by Vinnova (national innovation agency).
