Circular Flanders is the hub and the inspiration for the Flemish circular economy. It is a partnership of governments, companies, civil society, and the knowledge community that will take action together.
The Circular Economy Policy Research Centre was established to streamline policy-related research into policy measures for the circular economy in Flanders.
In a circular economy numerous strategies are applied in order to continue to use materials and products in the economy in as high-quality a manner as possible. They are repaired, have a high secondhand value, are upgradeable, and can easily be taken apart and turned into new products. The selected materials are recycled or bio-based at conception and are recyclable or biodegradable at end-of-life.
