CIRCULAR DESIGN
Which product in your portfolio is most suited for achieving your circular objectives? Which business model can you use to market it? Our analysis shows which requirements your product will have to meet. 

BIO-BASED MATERIALS
We use our knowledge of bio-based materials (like bio-based coatings) to select materials with the required functionality. All to reduce the environmental impact of your materials and product and to close the loop.

RECYCLED MATERIALS
We pay particular attention to materials that are difficult to recycle, such as composites. Together, we look at ways of recycling and using these to create valuable products.

PRODUCT LIFETIME EXTENSIONS
Repair, upgrade, refurbish, remanufacture,… How do you combine all these aspects of economic circularity into one feasible operational process? The objective is  for your business to be sustainable and your products to have a long(er) lifetime.
