ZeBeyond Joins Swedish Life Cycle Center’s SME Collaboration
We are delighted to welcome ZeBeyond as the latest participant in the Swedish Life Cycle Center’s SME collaboration. Recognizing the growing demand for life cycle competence and understanding since 2021, we identified the need for a complementary partner agreement to attract and welcome small and medium-sized companies to join the Center and actively engage in its activities. The inclusion of ZeBeyond as our fifth SME collaborator fills us with great excitement. This partnership not only meets the increased demand for life cycle expertise but also significantly reinforces our commitment to the Center’s vision of “Credible and applied life cycle thinking globally.”
To gain a deeper understanding of ZeBeyond and their goals for this collaboration, we spoke with Wiktor Dotter, the CEO of ZeBeyond.
What does ZeBeyond specialize in?
“ZeBeyond Ltd. specializes in developing powertrain optimization software for the early-stage product development R&D. Its main product ePOP allows users to rapidly simulate +100.000 system variants of applications where energy is being transformed. This is important as the industry is looking for new ways to reduce energy consumption, use new materials and decrease overall labor and cost.”
Why did ZeBeyond join the Swedish Life Cycle Center’s SME collaboration?
“We integrate sustainability into our software, enabling users to assess product designs for engineering and sustainability KPIs. Seeking collaboration, we aim to enhance our knowledge of LCA and circularity, connect with LCA experts for input on ePOP’s benefits, and engage with universities researching eco-friendly components. With ePOP’s system perspective, we contribute to rare earth-free motors, batteries, and gears design, fostering sustainable innovation.”
What are ZeBeyond’s aspirations as an SME in collaboration with the Center?
“As an active member, it would be great if we could collaborate around a real project where we define an engineering and sustainability target and work together in a consortium of several members from different disciplines and could use the results externally. This would push the industry forward towards sustainability, show how our product could be used, and hopefully find real more sustainable product designs to manufacture.”
