“The circular future of waste through co-creation.”
South-West Flanders is known as the manufacturing region in Belgium. 1 out of 3 production companies in Belgium is located in this region.
For many of these organizations, there is a compelling demand to transform into an industry that deals more sustainably with the available materials and raw materials.
The Circular Co-creation hub (CICO HUB) brings together organizations and companies from the South-West Flemish region around the themes of the circular economy and waste valorization.
In a first step, the residual streams from the manufacturing industry are identified and analysed.
In a next phase, the manufacturing industry, the social labor companies, design students and professional designers will co-create new products and business models that generate a win-win for the social labor companies (additional employment) and the manufacturing industry (new economic valorization of residual flows).
