Outline of a circular economy

The circular economy concept is generally described as one in which products and the materials they contain are highly valued, unlike in the traditional, linear economic model, based on a ‘take-make-consume-throw away’ pattern. This production and consumption model is based on two complementary loops drawing inspiration from
biological cycles: one for ‘biological’ materials (which can be decomposed by living organisms) and one for ‘technical’ materials (which cannot be decomposed by living organisms). In both cases, the aim is to limit the leakage of resources as much as possible.
