- What is the Circular Economy?
The circular economic model offers to sever the link between economic growth and the negative environmental impacts that often stem from it, and offers a new industrial model that aims to prevent the waste of resources.
- What is Circular Engineering?
Circular engineering is an approach to directing the engineering-economic system to a situation in which all players cooperate to keep natural resources in a reused cycle, as opposed to using them and quickly disposing of them. In such a system, human activity has no negative environmental impact, and can even have a positive effect - by using materials that feed the system and can safely return to soil or water.
