The city of Almere, working together with local stakeholders and the company Millvision, has developed an innovative circular economy partnership. The aquatic plant is a local and renewable input to the production of the paper but it also "circular" as something that would be discarded as waste is re-valued as a raw material used in production.
SYMBI project will contribute to improve the implementation of regional development policies and programmes related to the promotion and dissemination of Industrial Symbiosis and Circular Economy.
Cities of Making addresses the challenge of re-industrialisation in urban areas, where circular economy will have a key role. The project aims at developping a toolkit for policy makers to promote urban manufacturing in a transition economy.
Advanced Dry Recovery (ADR) technology upgrades fine non-ferrous metals from municipal waste-to-energy ash
The Inashco ash recycling consists of an on-site concentrator (ADR) and a centralized upgrading facility. The ADR together with conventional Eddy Current Separators, produce a fine non-ferrous concentrate and a clean marketable mineral aggregate. The non-ferrous concentrate is transported to the Inashco proprietary upgrading facility to be upgraded into metal scrap products.
The main objective of SEA-MATTER is to demonstrate and validate the reuse of coastal algae and seaweed accumulations as raw materials in composites industry.
In one of its terminals, Schiphol Airport runs the project "Light as a service" whereby it pays for the light produced, while its two partners Philips and Cofely remain the owners of the lamps and fittings.
Thanks to this innovative partnership, maintenance costs are reduced and recyclability and reusability of the lighting and framing guaranteed.
The “Every Can Counts” programme aims to improve recycling by enabling and encouraging people to recycle drinks cans used outside the home (e.g. workplaces, festivals, tourist locations, etc.).
WFO collects and transforms Ocean Plastic by collaborating with fishermen and brands.
BREAD4PLA is a project conducted by a consortium of four European organisation led by AIMPLAS.
It seeked to demonstrate, in a pre-productive pilot plant process, the viability of poly(lactic acid), a bioplastic polymer (PLA), synthesized from waste products of the bakery industry for the production of bakery packaging.
