A recent workshop in Gdansk, Poland, as part of the BONUS RETURN project showcased technological innovations centred around nutrient recovery and reuse in the Baltic Sea region and discussed what’s needed to develop the sector. The phrase “reduce, reuse, recycle and recover” summarizes the idea behind the circular economy. Collaboration between companies or sectors aimed at symbiosis – where waste or waste by-products become a resource for something else – is central to business models that help build a circular economy.
Li-Cycle Corp. (Li-Cycle), a leading lithium-ion battery resource recovery company, today announced that it has been named to Sitra’s Inspiring Circular Economy Solutions from Around the Globe ahead of the 2020 World Circular Economy Forum Online (WCEFonline). The WCEFonline, scheduled to run September 29 and 30, is a fully virtual event that will dive into why and how a circular economy can help to reboot and build resilience in the global economy.
In the past year, DS Smith has worked closely with the Foundation as a pilot partner of its circular economy tool, Circulytics. The tool works to measure circularity in a simple and effective way, allowing for companies to hold a mirror up to their business practices and better their internal processes.
