As long as we only remove recyclable materials from waste streams and continue to incinerate or landfill the vast majority, our raw materials deficit will continue to increase. To close the loop, we need new technologies.

We develop upcycling technology

Resources are turned into waste faster than waste can be turned back into resources.
A radical change in resource recovery is needed.

With current technologies, the recycling industry is not able to compensate the loss of raw materials. By 2050, the consumption of raw materials will triple, which is far beyond what the Earth can supply.

To allow a radical change, we must think beyond recycling and start upcycling.

The Circular Company develops innovative business cases for waste streams from which no or too few resources are recovered. Our innovation process is incremental: we bring proven technologies from other sectors together into new resource recovery technologies for the waste sector. These solutions will disrupt traditional monopolists and industries.

Our first upcycle factory will recover near 100% of the Technology Metals present in electrical and electronic waste (WEEE)

We start with upcycling 2.8 million kg Printed Circuit Boards
a year from 2018



Wherever you are on your Circular Economy journey, we can help your organisation by transforming sustainable challenges into opportunities.



In contrast to the usual mechanical extraction of raw materials from wastes, we are going to recover raw materials at a molecular level.

Project development


We develop plans for upcycle factories that can scale up exponentially and have an excellent financial Return On Investment for investors.
