From Mining to Circularity - Must

“From Mining to Circularity” addresses the pressing issues of climate change and Europe’s reliance on rare material imports. As a solution to both challenges, it presents a strategy for the cross-border area of South Limburg and Region Aachen to make a transition towards a more circular and sustainable future. The strategy focuses on three chances for circular systems: urban renovation, forestry management, and the recycling of technological waste. Each of these circular systems is being elaborated by a description of production cycles, local stakeholders, and a development path with tipping points and key projects. The proposed systems are tailored to specific ressources in the cross-border region. They are conceived to take advantages of local specificities regardless of the administrative borders.
