Manufacturers are being invited to learn more about the Circular Economy and the impact this global transformation will have on their sector at a special event in Manchester on 23 October 2018.
Circular Economy Club Manchester, a collaborative project led by Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), is offering businesses the opportunity to find out about circular manufacturing and how to gain access to regional projects and research funding.
The move away from a linear ‘take-make-use-throwaway’ economic model to one focused on circularity - where products and materials are kept in cycle through repair, reuse and recycling - is an ideal opportunity for manufacturers to boost resource efficiency, maximise cost savings and reach into new revenue streams.
The shift is being driven by increasing resource security risks, tightened product legislation and growing consumer demand for sustainable products and services.
The event is part of the international Circular Economy Club network and will introduce manufacturers to the concept of circular business and how to realise the value of their waste materials through collaborative partnerships.
Following the presentations there will also be a networking workshop to help delegates identify opportunities for collaboration and research funding.
The event will be held at Great John Street Hotel in Manchester city centre on 23 October 2018. For more information and to register, click here.
