To realize the shift towards a Circular Economy, products should stay usable as long as possible. Maintaining products is the most efficient way of retaining their desired level of performance. This is called Product care. Product care can be understood as any action that helps to prolong the lifetime of a product. The aim of this thesis is to...

The master graduation project focusses on accelerating the transition towards the circular economy. Specifically it is a design for an intervention on an existing building on the Marineterrein making it into start-up incubator in a way consistent with the thought frame of the Circular economy. The project is a exploration of the role of the...

Nowadays, a majority of goods is produced in a significant distance to a consumption market; spaces of production and consumption have become extremely disconnected. For this reason, consumers are not aware of labour and pollution that desired goods create. Large amounts of waste are disposed daily, in particular in well developed countries. But...

The current take-make-dispose economy, resulting in resource pressure and environmental problems, calls for circular economics. Islands are perfect living laboratories, because of their clearly defined boundaries and vulnerability to external factors. In this graduation Project, Ilha de Paquetá in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is taken as a case study...

In this thesis local re-use and up-cycling opportunities are investigated within Bandung, Indonesia. The findings concerning the different types of waste building materials are applied within a building material hub design. The building strives to create a small scale circular economy concerning building materials within the local context.

Due to growing prosperity in the world, together with the trend of urbanization, more and more natural resources are needed. However, the earth cannot keep providing us these materials, since many of them are depleting. The concept of circular economy is seen as an opportunity to tackle this problem. However, the infrastructure industry lags...

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...

This report provides an analysis of the consumer experience at the end-of-use phase of a product. The study in this report focussed on the consumer-product relationship: how this plays a role in the process of product detachment, and what this means for products at the end-of-use, with a specific attention for products in a circular economy.

The last couple of years the concept of the Circular Economy (CE) has been gaining more and more attention. The Netherlands want to become a CE as well and the government presented a national policy programme including goals to reach a CE in 2050. One of those goals is that Dutch public authorities should procure all their projects 100%...

In 2017, the Dutch government has set the goal to achieve a 100% circular economy by 2050. A transition from the current linear economy towards a circular economy is necessary to reach this goal. In the circular economy, products at end-of-life are no longer seen as waste but will be reused as a secondary product or resource.

The...

Many notions are taken the last decades to control production of waste and solve the scarcity of raw material. Circular Economy is a concept, designed to help solve this problem with a financial and environmental agenda. Combined with a Product to Service model, it can offer new opportunities in resetting the way we see ownership and what should...
