Building a Circular Economy

The Circular Economy - converting waste such as spent biomass, foodwaste, and plastic waste into products with value - has seen significant innovation interest in recent times. However, the path towards circularity requires connecting multiple technologies including waste collection/sorting, and the conversion technologies themselves. This report aims to highlight and evaluate these enabling technologies, while also highlighting gaps in creating a circular economy.

Digital Thread

Digital thread is a communication framework that connects traditionally siloed elements in manufacturing processes and provides an integrated view throughout the manufacturing lifecycle. It aims to digitalize every step from concept development, materials solution, and part & production design, to manufacturing and product lifecycle management. The resulting “digital twin” makes product development iteration faster, smarter, and cheaper. Software development plays a key role in the effort of putting digital thread together.
