Purpose: A paradigm in circular economy (CE) is that suppliers retain ownership of their products and materials, and that the users “only” pay for services. In many legal systems, however, elements incorporated in a building are considered to be fixtures, and therefore legally part of the building. This means that ensuring multi-cyclic...

With tackling the problems of resource depletion and waste, the currently booming topic of a circular economy (CE) comes up. This concept goes beyond the processes of reusing and recycling products and looks at the entire material and energy loops of products. The current economy, or linear economy, is still the status quo where products are...

Pay-per-use business models where consumers pay for the unit of service (e.g. a wash) without gaining product ownership are often linked to increased environmental performance. Consumers would become more conscious about consumption patterns and companies would take responsibility for product life cycle issues. Such benefits can only be achieved...

The appearance of circular economy has been raised as a solution to rapidly diminishing resources and waste issues that constant economic growth entail. The transition from the current linear economy in which we take, make, use, and dispose of resources to a circular economy in which waste becomes raw material is expected to close material loop....

However in many legal systems, elements incorporated in a building such as the facade or the roof, or equipment in a plant, are seen as fixtures...
