Circular economy is much more than waste management. The aim is to close cycles and use products and resources in the best way possible across the entire value chain. The circular economy model has been gaining ground in politics, industry and society over the last years. Behind this idea is a shift away from the linear model of “take-make-dispose" to a system of closed loops powered by renewable energy. The chemical industry and its innovations can lead the way in this change.
