Circular economy

Recycling bins

In the dominant linear economy, materials flow from extraction through production and use to the inevitable trash heap. The idea of circular economy turns that on its head to keep materials in use longer using strategies like reuse, remanufacture, recycling, and replacing ownership with rentals. We study circular economy from a variety of angles, including business models, governance, and systemic transitions.
