This diagram shows Circular Economy’s commonly accepted and widespread definition.

Circular Economy needs to be implemented within industries and projects through the following components: eco-conception, up-cycling, reuse, repairing, re-employ, economy of functionality, economy of scale, industrial and territorial ecology as well as  participation, networks, diversity, non toxicity.

Archetype of circular setups – materials flows is the largest common denominator across value chains.
