For the Dutch Parliament, TNO has assessed the opportunities for a circular economy in The Netherlands. TNO estimates the value of a circular economy to be about 7.3 billion euro. The results and conclusions of the TNO-rapport ‘The potential of a circular economy in the Netherlands’ are sent to the Dutch Parliament by Secretary of State Mrs. Wilma Mansfeld. A circular economy optimizes the efficiency in raw material consumption, energy, waste and emissions. Volledige rapport is Nederlandstalig Kansen voor de circulaire economie in Nederland.
