New Circular Economy Business Model for More Sustainable Urban Construction

CINDERELA is one of the examples aiding cities transformation to create smart and sustainable neighbourhoods

On Track to a Circular City Transition
This EIT Climate-KIC funded programme targeting circular cities aims to aid city transitions towards zero waste economies through the sharing of knowledge and examples of circular use of natural materials in the built environment.

The Circular Cities project is investigating how a city district and areas can be a transforming agent and create smart and sustainable neighbourhoods. The results of different Circular economy business concepts are anticipated to improve city management of buildings, construction and utility waste. Through productively utilizing household and industrial waste streams, Circular economy will increase the growing acknowledgement of “waste as a resource”. This publication is a case catalogue showing 13 examples of how cities are achieving this transformation on a district and local neighbourhood scale.

The catalogue, where CINDERELA project is listed in "Sustainable Living & Construction" chapter has been published and is available here .
