The EU-funded paperChain project aims at deploying five circular economy models by proritising wastes generated by Pulp and Paper Industries (PPI) as secondary raw materials for three resource intensive sectors: construction (of buildings and roads), mining, and the chemical industry.
Last December, LGI as a PaperChain project partner, released the project’s transition assessment. This assessment makes up a key element of any circular economy project, as it evaluates the benefits and disadvantages of both linear and circular models. It was carried out using a stakeholders’ map, a cost-revenue analysis as well as environmental, social and feasibility assessments for each case. Through this work, central determinants that lead to successful transition towards circular economy were identified.
Although the deliverable in itself is confidential, we have been authorised to publish some insights on the pilot cases. In this assessment overview, you’ll find, for each case:
- The case’s objective
- A brief presentation of the stakeholders and their role
- A representation of both the linear and circular models, and an overview of their main differences
- A basic Cost-Revenue Analysis (CRA)
