We offer waste management consulting expertise and can help your company to join the circular economy.
The circular economy is a concept that is gaining momentum. It revolves around the idea of sending zero waste to landfill. Therefore, to achieve this goal, companies around the world are considering alternatives to disposal. These alternatives include reuse, repair, remanufacture and recycling. The results of the circular economy concept are reduced impacts on the environment. But at the same time, it can often create cost savings for your company.
However, waste management is more than just a concept. Waste management is a mindset, which considers the impact of every decision. And it makes us ask questions such as, “how will this impact the amount of waste that is generated”, “how can this decision reduce our impact on the environment”, and “how else could we do it”?
RareEarth Recycling can help your company to achieve this goal. So ask us more about the circular economy and how it applies to your business.
We can assist you with research & development, strategy assessments, technical assistance, techno-economic studies, training and waste characterisation, as well as other waste management consulting services. Just ask us.
The circular economy
The aim of the circular economy is to create an economic system which is a closed loop. What this means is that when a material enters the loop, it does not just pass through and become waste. Rather, once it enters it does not leave. Hence there is no waste. Everything that is no longer required for one purpose finds another purpose. As you can imagine, this is sometimes quite challenging. But once you get it right, you can save on needing new materials all the time.
