European Circular Economy project

Together with research and industry partners across Europe, IDEAL&CO Explore will develop an innovative framework for the implementation of closed-loop manufacturing systems. Four manufacturers who are active in B2B and B2C markets will pilot a closed-loop product system in their businesses. These pilots will demonstrate how the collecting, remanufacturing and upcycling of discarded products into new added-value products will be cost-effective, resource-efficient and more sustainable than the current linear manufacturing systems. In this project, we work together with KTH, Delft University of Technology, Bugaboo, tedrive, Gorenje, Loewe, Fraunhofer, Granta Design, Ellen MacArthur Foundation, INSEAD and Eurostep.
