RE-SOURCE – Resource efficient production processes and value chains
We need to move from waste management to resource management – from the "take, make and dispose" approach to maximised resource utilisation.
Re-source produces knowledge to develop novel processes for recovery, purification and manufacturing. We enable replacing oil-based compounds with bio-based ones in everyday products.
We efficiently utilise industrial side streams and waste, which compose a significant material source. For example, urban mining provides us an opportunity to recover precious metals from electronic waste.
