Cerame-Unie is delighted to present our Brochure on Circular Economy and Sustainability | Best Practices from the Ceramic Industry.
The transition from a linear ‘produce, use, waste’ model to a circular model where resources and materials are reused, recycled or recovered calls for new business models and encourages the development of innovative solutions in the industry.
Clay is a widely, endless available raw material. Ceramic products are resource efficient and stand out with their high durability thanks to their long lifespan. After the end-of-life stage, ceramic products can be reused, recycled, or recovered.
The ceramic industry has also developed innovative solutions with the aim of minimising the raw material consumption and waste generation during the production process, through the reuse of waste from other industrial processes, an optimised raw material selection and product design, and supply chain cooperation in the case of recycling.
This brochure highlights best practices from the ceramic industry and shows how it contributes to the shift towards circular economy through innovative production processes and sustainable products.
