High-sounding and inspiring, the concept of Circular Economy to date is still poorly integrated into industrial practice. The goal of the webinar is to provide a clear definition of the concept, proposing a broad perspective not limited to reducing waste and reusing resources. The presentation will include business models, examples and thought that will lead to a redefinition of production systems, products, services and consumption methods that will maximize the benefits of the Circular Economy towards sustainable development.
