What makes an economy Circular? Decompose to New Life !

Let’s review.

>>In Nature, After Use:Dead tissues break down and are converted into simple organic forms;food for new life.
>>In Industry, After Use: Break-it-up, dismantle it, separate materials, disassemble it, take it apart into its various materialsand ready them as new feed-stocks for new production.

Recycling and Reuse!
Closing the Loop – The Life Cycle of ALL things

The part that makes it a Circular Economy

In this post:
Without decay, we would overflow with plant & animal “remains”
Decomposition is the first stage = recycling
Recycling business is beginning to turn profitable
There really is an urgent need to accelerate recycling.

Heal the Scars,
Put back BioDiversity.
Capture and pull down CO2.
Rid the land and water of contaminants.
Slow down water velocity.
Attract native species to return and Heal.
Not invasive
Strong Organic Stablization of land
Much Cheaper than ridged contruction!

Climate Retrofits on Land or at Sea >> Big Demand

Retrofit =  
to modify, change, remodel to a new purpose or need,
to modify equipment, to replace existing parts, etc., with updated parts or systems.

A fix to reduce Fossil Fuel worldwide!
Electric-powered heat pumps that both heat and cool to replace oil&gas. Use renewable electricity to power the electric-powered heat pumps.

The pandemic is an opportunity to review, rethink, rehash.
I have followed the development of Mycelium in Industry for the last few years and thought it would be good to stand back and review ………..
