Panel discussions around tools and methodologies to assess the impact of marine litter and to address the issue of circular economy and sustainable tourism in islands.
On the 24th of May, C&A Foundation, together with Ecopreneur.EU hosted a Circular Fashion Policy Lab in Brussels at the European Economic and Social Committee in context of the Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform. The purpose of the event was to bring together representatives from across the fashion industry to discuss what key policy measures could make a meaningful impact to boost the transition to a new green economy.
The purpose of the project has been to highlight the possibilities the municipalities and regions have to accommodate a more circular economy in the future.
The EU cement industry supports the promotion of industrial symbiosis and the recognition of energy recovery as a waste management solution for non-recyclable waste. The use of waste materials in the cement industry with a simultaneous energy recovery and material recycling, referred to as co-processing, contributes towards achieving the objectives of the circular economy.
After several years of research, a pilot plant has been constructed and gone into operation within Covesto’s project Cycles (funded by German Federal Ministry of Environment (BMUB)), to demonstrate the reuse of low-concentrated salt-containing wastewater streams.
Cities and regions in Alpine Space have mainly set their low-carbon objectives and adopted relevant strategies in energy, mobility, construction aso. The project GREENCYCLE aims to introduce the system of circular economy as a holistic approach to support implementation of low-carbon strategies and provide additional 2-4 % greenhouse emission reduction to the partner cities.
PolyStyreneLoop project: pioneer demonstration plant to treat up to 3300 tonnes of polystyrene waste/yr as of 2018
The PolyStyreneLoop (PSL) Cooperative is the European EPS/XPS industry’s closedloop solution for the recycling of polystyrene (PS) insulation foam waste.
This innovative project employs a ground-breaking technology to dissolve PS foam waste while also allowing for the extraction and recovery of bromine from the recently restricted flame retardant chemical, HBCD, which can then be used again for the production of new flame retardants.
Marketplace Hub maps raw materials markets and industrial synergy networks worldwide by both their locations and what material they trade. It aims to aid interested businesses to find where they could source or sell their materials secondary raw materials.
Best practices, policies, and lessons learned are also included in the interactive web-based platform.
