Safe and sustainable circular economy

The goals of circular economy include reducing the consumption of materials and retaining the value of products and materials as long as possible. The aim is not only to improve resource efficiency by repair, reuse and material recycling, but also to achieve environmental benefits in general by reducing the use of virgin materials. This also makes circular economy one of the ways to combat climate change.

Managing harmful substances in the circular economy is a balancing act between maximising the recovery and recycling of waste and the protection of health and the environment.

In the Safe and sustainable circular economy SIRKKU project, several workshops were arranged to include stakeholders from different industrial sectors in the discussion. Interviews and electronic surveys were used as interaction tools in the survey. During the first expert workshop recycling of construction and demolition waste as well as plastic and composite materials were selected as the target fields.
