Call for proposal “Best practices of implementation of Circular Economy in Canary Islands” launched by Consulta Europa

This call for proposal pretends to pick up the best practices dealing with “Circular Economy” set in motion in the autonomia de Islas Canarias by public or private entities. In a circular economy, the value of the products and materials is maintained for as long as possible. The wastes produced and the resources consumption are kept to the minimum, and the resources are conserved into the economic circuit. When a product reaches the end of its useful life, it is returned into the economic circuit by other uses in order to keep creating valor. Are researched practices and initiatives which are implementing this principle.
