The circular economy is much more than recycling. A linear economy makes, uses, and disposes materials while circular economy looks at all the options across the chain to use as few resources as possible in the first place, keep resources in circulation for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them while in use, then recover and regenerate products at the end of service life. This means designing products for longevity with repairability in mind so that materials can be easily dismantled and recycled.
Circular economy is currently a crucial issue and high to be an international global policy. Public and private co-operation is crucial in converting challenges into opportunities at a national, regional and global level.
