Zero-Waste Operations within the Circular Economy

According to the World Bank, around 3.4 billion tonnes of waste will be generated globally each year by 2050, an increase of 70% from 2016 levels. Waste is produced when the most economical and convenient solution to deal with materials at the end of their useful life is to landfill them. The consequence of waste is that new materials need to be drilled / mined, depleting natural world resources and negatively impacting ecosystems.
