CIRCULAR ECONOMY BUSINESS MODELS: COLLABORATIVE REUSE & RECYCLING

This model is based on a user-friendly waste collection system. It includes a system for stakeholders to interact with each other to facilitate the use/reuse of end-of-life products and reduce waste, and implements an eco-credits awarding scheme to encourage people to recycle/reuse.

 

The key innovations of the CEBM are the ICT based reuse/recycling system; an eco-credit/eco-cost based consumer app; incentive schemes for reducing, reusing and recycling; and awareness activities.

This new circular economy business model is currently being piloted in Spain.
