UCL Circular Economy Lab
"A circular economy keeps products, components and materials at their highest utility and value, at all times, eliminating the concept of waste, with materials ultimately re-entering the economy at end of use as defined, valuable technical or biological nutrients." Ellen Macarthur Foundation.
We are aiming to develop the scientific and socio-economic understanding and technological basis for design and implementation of systems, processes and policy that will support the transition to a Circular Economy. With access to the full width and depth of UCL expertise, CircEL will be capable of tackling Circular Economy related problems of any size or stage of development.
Information on several programmes relevant to UCL CircEL and also some specific modules disseminating knowledge gained from various research projects can be found here.
Previous activities have included trips to Closed Loop Plastic Recycling, The Brighton Waste House, East London Biogas and more.
It is essential that CircEL research and technology development is driven by the needs of the industrial/business community. We encourage the support of, and guidance by, compatible large companies and well-matched small/medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
