New Circular Economy Business Model for More Sustainable Urban Construction


If a business model is to be feasible in different environments of its implementation, there is a basic need for a modular approach to achieve the appropriate flexibility. In the case of the CinderCEBM it is necessary to take into account the fact that, in different regions across Europe, the availability of input materials varies a great deal (e.g. in the Netherlands the recycling of CDW is already widespread, while in south Europe their use is usually lower). For this reason three different locations were chosen in order to verify the CinderCEBM in large-scale technological demonstrations accompanying with its economic assessments (Slovenia, Croatia and Spain), and simulation of Cinder CEBM will modelled in three further cities (Italy, Poland and the Netherlands) and simulated on other EU counties, in order to prove the flexibility of the model. Having a business model offering solutions for different problems, ample support for implementation is needed.
