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.
