Seminar Circular Economy: How to design and organize circular material flows

Start date
End date
Online (Teams)

An important part of organizing the circular economy is re-directing waste materials and products back to places where they can be recycled, remanufactured or reused as secondary resources. Re-directing possibilities already start at the design phase and throughout the life cycle circular performance is influenced by digital strategies. In order to implement waste-to-resource loops, we need a deeper understanding of how products are used, discarded, and re-directed. In this (free) seminar, we will dive deep into digital strategies, awareness of users, facility locations, reverse logistics, and inventory stocks.
