WHAT IS CIRCULAR ECONOMY?

« Looking beyond the current take-make-dispose extractive industrial model, a circular economy aims to redefine growth, focusing on positive society-wide benefits. It entails gradually decoupling economic activity from the consumption of finite resources, and designing waste out of the system. Underpinned by a transition to renewable energy sources, the circular model builds economic, natural, and social capital. »

WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR INDUSTRY?

Focusing on connections between operators within the ‘industrial ecosystem’, circular economy in industry aims at creating closed-loop processes in which waste serves as an input, thus eliminating the notion of an undesirable by-product. Search for economic and environmental benefits are at the core of this systemic approach.

BE CIRCLE supports industrial ecosystems in their transition towards circular economy.

As a consulting service based on a web platform, it helps design and transform industrial parks to close resource loops and improve environmental performance and competitiveness.

Generate your local ecosystem in order to visualize the industrial facilities nearby and identify the material, energy and water streams exchanged

Improve your territorial integration by identifying strategic industrial synergies and partnerships

Assess scenarios of resource supply and commodity management with economic and environmental KPIs (CAPEX, OPEX, use of renewables, GHG emissions, water circularity…)
