UK’s first cradle-to-cradle demonstration set for East London

UK’s first cradle-to-cradle demonstration set for East London

East London businesses will have the opportunity to see how a truly circular economy could work, after planning permission for the UK’s first industrial scale “cradle-to-cradle” demonstration project was granted this week.

Cradle-to-cradle business models involve the collection of waste materials that might be otherwise go to landfill in order to make new products that can be recycled and reused themselves, saving resources, cutting greenhouse gas emissions, and reducing costs.

The project forms part of a pan European initiative called C2C BIZZ, which aims to accelerate the application of cradle-to-cradle (C2C) principles at business sites and in the wider built environment throughout North West Europe. According to the Institute for Sustainability, which secured planning permission for the new project, the pilot will be used to produce a toolkit for creating C2C business and innovation sites and provides guidance on finance models, operation best practices, and technical advice for future sites.
