Overview

In the Circular Economy programme from LUT University , you will learn how a bio-based materials economy may help us produce systems without waste. In a circular economy, the role of business is central, and therefore, you will also learn how business can create new business models based on the circular economy approach.

The assumption is that increasing economic growth produces so much surplus that arising adverse environmental impacts could be dealt with.

However, the system keeps growing only if there are enough resources for transformation, sinks for waste, credit for investments and economic growth.

The circular economy offers an alternative. It aims to keep products, components and materials at their highest utility and value. It aims to decouple economic growth from the consumption of finite resources by closing the loop of product life cycles. The system in which materials are transformed into useful goods and services endlessly is powered by renewable energy systems.
