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.

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.
