  • Industrial symbiosis: practices in China’s industrial parks

    • Authors: Kai Zhao
      Abstract: As an important driver for regional economic development, industrial parks are not only a zoned area consuming resources and energy while generating pollution, but also an excellent tool to improve the ecological environment and achieve high-quality development. Industrial symbiosis refers to the cooperation between different companies to achieve resource sharing or complementarity, and directly or indirectly enhance resource allocation efficiency within or outside them. It helps foster synergistic developments among industries, efficient use of resources, continuous extension of the industrial chain, and further develop the industrial cycle, symbiosis or coupling.

  • Pathways to an innovative circular economy

    • Authors: Franck Aggeri
      Abstract: Innovation has a crucial role to play in turning the circular economy’s promises into reality. The concept is currently generating countless innovative projects, but assessing their potential and long-term durability is not easy. What do circular innovations look like' What potential do they have to go beyond local experiments to create economic and ecological value as well as jobs' What partnerships and actors are emerging in relation to this topic' How are these innovative processes put in place and what are the obstacles to their success' These are the questions we ask in Part 3 of this issue as we explore circular economy pathways. To answer them, we have chosen to give a platform to actors that have implemented proven projects providing a good indication of the variety of topics that circular innovations tackle: closed-loop recycling of electric vehicle batteries; creating a reuse and repair economy; online platforms specializing in reuse and second-life products, and the funct...

  • Shifting how the various actors behave

    • Authors: Joël Ntsondé
      Abstract: Helping our models transition toward a circular economy requires efforts by the private sector actors involved in producing goods and services, public sector actors regulating the economic and social spheres, and consumers, whose purchasing choices influence businesses’ current and future strategies. So, how can we nurture the emergence of new ways of consuming and producing? To answer this question, we need to examine the levers at our disposal for shifting the behavior of individuals, authorities and businesses. From new lifestyles and public policies to management indicators and industrial strategies, countless mechanisms exist for influencing the behavior of socio-economic actors and fostering the rollout of circular practices.

The challenge here is to switch from mass consumption within...

  • The need for a new waste management model

    • Authors: Helen Micheaux
      Abstract: The amount of waste generated has risen ceaselessly since the dawn of the consumer society. This growth is expected to continue with the urbanization of developing countries. In 2018, the world produced two billion metric tons of municipal waste, a figure set to increase by a further 70% by 2050 if there is no change of model. Most of the waste is produced in East Asia and the Pacific, followed by South Asia, neck-and-neck with Europe and Central Asia. The environmental and social impacts are increasingly visible. There is a solution at hand: the circular economy, defined in opposition to the linear take-make-waste model. However, the world’s economy in 2020 had a level of circularity of just 8.6%. A number of initiatives exist, but many challenges remain ahead if we are to make the circular transition. Image 10000000000005DC0000034B7300EB3C8A219B6B.jpg Origins of the circular economy If we step back slightly from all the buzz that surrounds the circular economy, it is reasonable to ask ourselves, particularly the older members of o...

  • Leading a corporate ecological transition

    • Authors: Eric Rampelberg
      Abstract: Interface was founded by Ray Anderson in 1973 and specializes in manufacturing carpet tiles for commercial clients, a sector where it is world leader with 2019 revenue of 1.2 billion dollars. The company became aware of the scale of its environmental impacts, and of the fact that it is part of the problem, as early as 1994. At the time, Ray Anderson instigated a top-to-bottom review with the company’s various stakeholders to transform the company mission and focus on transitioning to a more sustainable approach. In 1996, the company adopted Mission Zero, a new corporate project targeting the year 2020: the goal was to move to zero environmental impact by 2020. A new and even more ambitious roadmap, called Climate Take Back, has been put in place for the period up to 2040.
      In terms of circularity, a range of targets and actions have progressively emerged: incorporation of recycled and bio-sourced materials when designing products, and development of products with designed-in sustainab...

  • Circular lighting to protect value

    • Authors: Francois Darsy
      Abstract: Light has impacts that are environmental, economic, social and cultural. Our aim is develop solutions that align with actions worldwide to protect the climate and promote the circular economy, health, well-being, safety and security.
      Lighting currently accounts for 14% of electricity use around the world, making it an issue of major concern. Designed with and for users, our products, systems and services contribute to boosting the environmental performance of buildings. LED lighting, which uses less electricity, can deliver energy savings of 50% to 90% compared to conventional lighting technologies.
      To guarantee long-term performance in use, we now offer a circular lighting service where clients purchase lighting services for their premises rather than lamps and fittings. This focus on use over ownership delivers warranted performance in terms of lux output, electricity use, and availability. At the end of a contract, Signify is responsible for recovering products for reuse, recondi...

  • Using digital to develop the market for refurbished products

    • Authors: Camille Richard
      Abstract: Back Market is a pioneering online marketplace for refurbished electronic devices and household appliances. Operating in the USA and several European countries, Back Market has designed a digital platform that helps put buyers, refurbishers and sellers of refurbished devices in touch with each other. The Back Market platform fosters the creation of new sectors of the circular economy, which in turn help promote the emergence of more responsible consumer habits.
      Aside from its commercial activities, Back Market is also committed to being a socially and environmentally responsible actor, evaluating the social and environmental impact of selling refurbished products, whether in terms of job creation or the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Introducing materials from the circular economy into the construction
           industry

    • Authors: Arnaud Bousquet
      Abstract: With 40 million metric tons of waste (75% inert, 23% non-hazardous and 2% hazardous), the construction industry is one of France’s largescale producers of waste and has been identified by policymakers as one of the major challenges for the circular economy. It is an issue being addressed at the national level via the February 10, 2020 law on the circular economy and combatting waste, which created an Extended Producer Responsibility system for the construction industry, and at the local level with, for example, the Paris region making construction one of the priorities for its 2020-2030 circular economy strategy. At the same time, work on the 2024 Paris Olympics and the Grand Paris project has greatly increased the number of construction sites and quantity of construction waste in the Paris region. It is thought that work on the Grand Paris Express will generate around 43 million metric tons of spoil (50% from tunneling, 50% from creating stations and ancillary structures) at 267 se...

  • Repair, reuse and job creation

    • Authors: Jean-Paul Raillard
      Abstract: Fédération Envie comprises some fifty organizations employing 2,860 people, 2,011 of them on employment integration schemes, and generating approximately €81 million in turnover across France. Envie’s mission is threefold: social (socio-professional inclusion and integration of people excluded from the workforce), environmental (encouraging repair and reuse), and economic (giving regions an economic boost).
      Envie’s development since the 1980s demonstrates the remarkable source of employment the circular economy can represent at the local level, initially focused on electronics and household appliances then, more recently, expanding to include medical devices. In addition, the shift in public policies and the perceptions of the general public, elected politicians and industry players opens the door to new forms of collaboration with the potential to help make the circular, local economy a dominant model in the years to come. Following France’s 2020 law on the circular economy, the rol...

  • Recycling electric vehicle batteries: ecological transformation and
           preserving resources

    • Authors: Pascal Muller, Romain Duboc, Emeric Malefant
      Abstract: Dismantling a battery Image 10000000000005A0000002D03A88BEA642229835.jpg ©Veolia Introduction Electric vehicle batteries will become a major problem in the near future if they are not managed correctly. This is because they contain highly toxic chemicals that represent a threat to ecosystems as well as to the people who handle them. In addition to plastics, solvents and electronic components, the active parts of battery cells also contain strategic metals such as copper, nickel, lithium and cobalt. This means that recycling these components is an environmental and strategic imperative. The market for recycling electric vehicle batteries is growing exponentially: from 200,000 metric tons of EV batteries eligible for recycling in 2021 to 7 million metric tons in 2035, representing metals with a value in excess of €15 billion. The market is particularly buoyant in China while it is expanding in Europe and should follow suit in the USA in a few years’ time. The phenomenon is underpinned by rapidly changing regulations that increasingly requ...
