The CIRCE2020 project aims to facilitate a larger uptake of integrated environmental management approach in five specific Central European industrial areas by changing patterns from single and sporadic company recycling interventions to an integrated redesign of industrial interactions based on the concept of circular economy.

The goal is to introduce innovative cross-value chain waste governance models and transnational analytic tools to improve capacities of concerned waste public-private sector to reduce dependencies from primary natural resources within industrial processing. The project should also provide robust evidences about environmental and economic benefits from shifting to enhanced industrial symbiosis.

One of the Hungarian partners of the project is the Bay Zoltán Nonprofit Ltd. for Applied Research.

Implementation period: 01/07/2020-30/09/2020
