2020 technical report:
The circular economy – Solutions for the future in recycling

The recycling technical report sees professionals from all three organisations – SENS, Swico and the Swiss Lighting Recycling Foundation (SLRS) – and experts from the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) and private consultancy firms come together to share their knowledge, experience and findings. This expertise is then condensed into a single publication and made available to specialist agencies and other interested parties free of charge.

In this year’s report, aside from providing the annual reporting figures, we look at the concept of the circular economy, an important aspect of the future of recycling across Europe.

The technical report is published in German, French and English and can be viewed online or downloaded as an interactive PDF:
