EMF accelerating the Circular Economy Transition

Ellen MacArthur Foundation – wants to put as much as possible of the last part of “Nature’s Life Cycle” back into industry. The part that we humans have to re-evaluate.

In this post:
The WasteRUSH of the 2020’s
Still not focused enough on Closing-the-Loop
Humans have moved outside Earth’s planetary boundaries.
A CIRCULAR ECONOMY IS A VERY GOOD IDEA
Inspire your children to think differently

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.

Urban Mining ! – More important than ever

= Capture Critical Minerals & Elements in recycling

I say the future needs to be Urban Mining = Total Materials Recycling.

Clean Energy Demand for Critical Minerals is set to skyrocket!
They call it Urban Mining = Recycling Materials
Huge amounts of Critical Minerals in our Waste!
