The CIRC4Life project developed 3 new circular economy business models that aim to engage consumers in the transition towards a circular economy, using the following three approaches: Co-Creation of products and services with end-users, Sustainable Consumption and Collaborative Recycling/Reuse.
These new business models will be demonstrated and piloted in 4 sectors: electrical and electronic products (tablets, domestic and industrial lighting) and farming and agri-foods sectors (meat supply chain and organic vegetables) by relevant industrial partners in Spain and the UK.
DEMO 1 applies the business models into the sustainable development of domestic and industrial LED lights.
DEMO 2 focuses on developing a business model on the recycling and reuse of tablets by incentivising end-users, raising awareness and taking account of consumer preferences on reused/ refurbished WEEE.
DEMO 3 applies the business models to a micro-farm in the production process of vegetables on the island of St. Martin’s (Isles of Scilly, UK)
DEMO 4 applies the business models to the meat supply chain in the Murcia Region, Spain.
