Material value chains for circular economy in metal, wood, plastic and concrete

As a circular economy will help Europe reach its energy and climate targets, which have been agreed by the Member States and remain at the forefront of the green economy, these objectives are best reached by closing resource loops and maintaining the value and quality of materials all along the cycle.

CEN and CENELEC members, together with their industry partners, kindly invite you to a one-day stakeholder workshop to address the challenges linked to the circularity of material-use at every phase of the value chain, and to both discuss and identify specific standardization gaps for metal, wood, plastic and concrete circularity. Participants include concrete, metal, and wood industry representatives, policymakes, consumer representatives, research institutes, the standardization community and NGOs.
