Resource-efficient Circular Product-Service Systems (ReCiPSS)
The European Commission supports Research and Innovation projects through the Horizon 2020 programme. Circular Economy Solutions GmbH (C-ECO) participates in two eco-innovative projects in the field of Circular Economy which aim to bring new innovative solutions in the market. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market.
The ReCiPSS project aims to explore success factors for circular manufacturing models at a large scale. Two industrial demonstrators of the Automotive and White Goods Industries are involved in the project and they will demonstrate the successful implementation of circular manufacturing systems where the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) is in full control of the entire product throughout all stages.
C-ECO as a technology provider and with its core competences in reverse logistics (with CoremanNet) will be taking a leading role in the automotive spare parts demonstrator. This demonstrator relates to a more complex value chain where the OEM does not have full control of the product throughout all stages. The participants of ReCiPSS will develop circular tools and methodologies for the manufacturing industry and develop an ICT platform allowing data exchange for both project cases over a duration of four years.
