The concept of the Circular Economy is to try to eliminate or minimise waste at all stages of the lifecycle of a product, thus creating a more sustainable, environmentally conscious alternative to the traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose). Whilst the awareness of the benefits of the Circular Economy is increasing on the back of well publicised issues such as that of plastic pollution, the rate and scale of changes varies at different stages of the cycle. Supermarkets, for example, are trying to find cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternatives to the huge swathes of plastics that currently adorns their shelves which in turn, is driving changes at the start of the cycle with packaging designers/manufacturing altering the designs/composition of products.
The waste and recycling industry has been key in the development of the circular economy, driving change by offering sustainable alternatives to traditional landfill such as Energy from Waste and Anaerobic Digestion plants, together with improved segregation of waste streams either at source or through specialist processing facilities.
