Circular Economy: Regulatory obstacles to a circular economy on selected high potential markets
Circular economy systems keep the added value in products for as long as possible and eliminate waste. There are various strategies or options for increasing circularity, e.g. ecodesign, resource efficient processes, remanufacturing, various types of reuse and recycling, industrial symbiosis, cascading, etc. The objective of this study is to identify the most promising potential markets linked to circular economy, which are currently closed or under-performing due to regulatory obstacles or regulatory gaps.
