Research and circular economy

Circular economy is the basis of sustainable development. This concept refers to the idea of keeping resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them and finally recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of their lifetime.

The European Commission adopted a circular economy package covering the whole cycle: production, consumption, waste management and secondary raw materials. This policy needs to be backed by a strong research and innovation support.

The Biorefine Cluster Europe is involved in different projects to boost research initiatives on circular economy.
