Start-up of the National Circular Economy Hub for sustainable waste management
The Danish Agency for Science and Education has initiated the two-year project “National Circular Economy HUB” at the end of 2016 in order to make Denmark the epicenter of sustainability in the future through innovative interdisciplinary approach, knowledge, technology and production.
In other words, sustainability now has a collective boost in Denmark with focus on waste as a resource. Four different industries in the form of “construction”, “clothing, textile and wood”, “plastic and packaging” and “Agriculture and Food” is now working on the project and greets each in with input on how their industry can work minimize waste-creation and contribute to higher levels of resource utilization and recycling.
Ultimately, knowledge sharing and the specific future projects during the 2-year project period should help to show how individual companies can work with measures to boost the company’s sustainability.
