CIRCONTAINER focuses on increasing the recycling rate of building materials during demolition/dismantling, and more specifically on the “first mile” of “reverse logistics”; it is therefore both a product and a process. Solutions are provided for the questions:
via which optimized route do the demolished/dismantled materials (be it a renovator-citizen be it a demolition company) reach the ultimate processor of the recyclate, (product);
which optimized intermediate steps are desired for this (process).
Together with Material Mastery and the Gents MilieuFront, a prototype of a compartmentalized container is being worked on. It will primarily be deployed in the province of Oost-Vlaanderen, which supports the project.
It goes without saying that saving raw materials and CO2 reduction are the major goals, and circular thinking the major means.
