The final report of the CIRCTER project is now available online. It includes extensive information about: a territorial definition of the circular economy; the monitoring of circular economy at sub-national levels; evidence from six CIRCTER case studies including three ACR+ members: Zero Waste Scotland, Maribor and Brussels Environment; and adapted policy recommendations. A series of maps illustrating the territorial dimension of circular economy is also enclosed. A synthesis is also accessible (and more digestible).
CIRCTER’s main policy messages are the following:

  • Agglomeration economies seem the most relevant territorial factor driving circular economies;
  • For rural regions the biggest prospect clearly lays in the circular bioeconomy;
  • Industrial areas are the only possible setting for several circular economy strategies, ranging from industrial symbiosis schemes to product remanufacturing;
  • Regions and cities have a fundamental role in contributing to an effective recovery of all materials that are consumed locally.
