A circular and environment-friendly economy could displace the linear economy as it is in use around the world. This would involve enlarged life cycles for products, and an increase in the efficiency of electric and electronic devices. The generation of new materials will be essential, as well as materials recycling or conversion after use. This book discusses new ways of production, management, recycling and conversion of new and regular materials.
