Creating value instead of throwing it away - Zirkel.Training
Integration of product operations in regional eco industrial networks
We are exploring how proximity advantages and regional approaches can induce operational cooperation in the circular economy and efficient use of resources.
We highlight the particular advantages and design requirements of a regional conjunction of different goods producers for material flow management and the circular economy, related to much-discussed approaches such as ‘urban production’ and ‘eco-industrial networks’.
After a lecture segment, students will be able to discuss and evaluate examples from areas of circular goods production themselves in workshop group work.

The team at the Chair of Economic Geography has been dealing with questions of sustainable development or ‘Environmental Economic Geography’ for many years. The topic of the circular economy fits well with perspectives of modern economic geography in several respects: The consideration of industrial value chains from raw materials to production to consumption and disposal is part of the basic knowledge of the subject. Our focus on spatially specific development contexts emphasizes the importance of regional contextual conditions and options for spatial actor networking for the implementation of an effective circular economy.
