recircular is a brokering platform that proposes alternatives for
a given waste stream and connects the waste generator with potential consumers.
There is a huge amount of resources that are landfilled or incinerated
as waste. We currently produce 2,700 Mtons of waste yearly in Europe, out of which 60% is not recycled or reused; among them 270 Mtons are industrial waste. Additionally, businesses face the burden of always increasing landfill taxes and the dependency on imported raw materials with a high price volatility, all these impacting the companies’ profitability.
Recircular is an active and collaborative platform that automatically proposes alternatives for a given waste stream and connects the waste generator with potential consumers. The platform prevents businesses from wasting resources and gives those resources a second life.
Every manufacturing company needs raw materials and has to deal with the waste it produces. Recircular works in the area of industrial symbiosis that can be framed within the circular economy and fulfils the principle of the waste from a process becoming food or raw material for another one.
