Circular Economy and Emerging Technologies

"The intersection of ICT and the circular economy is buzzing with possibility."

Emerging technologies and their convergence are having a transformational effect across global value chains. The range of these innovations across the digital, physical and biological technologies −from AI/machine learning, robotics, Internet of Things, bioelectrochemical engineering, to blockchain, etc.− play a crucial role in enabling circular business models by increasing efficiencies and reducing wastage; driving innovation by allowing new entrants in the markets; increasing information transparency allowing companies to gather insights; and by enabling a move away from the use of traditional, limited, or resource intensive materials.

This session aims to address those emerging technologies most frequently embraced by industries that can be catalytic enablers for new disruptive business models and facilitate the required fast pace for the transformation to a circular economy.
