  • Which material cycles must and can be closed across industries?

Circular Production

  • How can products be manufactured with lower resource consumption and higher efficiency?
  • How can the concept of circular economy be applied in production to improve methods of recycling and reuse?
  • WHow can the concept of “industrial symbiosis” be applied or strengthened?

Product sustainability

  • How can the life cycle of products be extended?
