In her activities concerning the Economic Opportunities in Circular Economy for the Drecht Cities Maritime Delta, Cirkellab published an intermediate-report combining economic circumstances in 5 different maritime subsectors with the relevant circular approach. The transition to a circular economy takes place in different dimensions: design, innovation, choice of materials, recycling, repair, refitting and remanufacturing to extend the life of products, parts and installations or give them a second life in a different application. And there are big differences in economic context in the maritime subsectors as to which approach is relevant for business today to take firm ground in the sector – and realise the associated materials- and energy-savings.
Cirkellab stimulates, creates and connects in the transition to a regional, circular economy. Investigating, supporting and initiating businesscases on resource efficiency, remanufacturing and sustainability. This action-research for the Drecht Cities Maritime Delta aims to initiate, collect and promote circular busisnesscases as economic opportunities for the sector, by the end of 2016.
