Circular Economy via distance learning
This Bachelor's Degree in circular economy studies how to reuse, share, repair, refurbish, remanufacture and recycle products and services to create a closed-loop system, minimizing the use of resource inputs and the generation of waste and pollution. The circular economy aims to keep products, materials, equipment and infrastructure in use for longer time, thus improving the productivity of these resources. Waste materials and energy should become input for other processes through waste valorization: either as a component or recovered resource for another industrial process or as regenerative resources for nature. The regenerative approach of circular economy works in contrast to the traditional linear economy, based on a "take, make, dispose" model of production.
