Circularity strategies within the production chain, in order of priority

Infographic | 26-01-2017

In a circular economy, materials ideally retain their original quality. This enables us to recycle these recovered materials into the same type of products. Several circularity strategies exist to prevent resource extraction and primary material demand as well as waste production. There is also a priority order in those circularity strategies. As a rule of thumb, more circularity means more environmental gain.
