Project duration: 1 January 2016 – 31 December 2018
Sustainability support in decision making towards the design of products and services for the circular economy.
The solution (technology)
The SSIC provides information on the sustainability of material stocks, evidence on resource efficiency, analysis of critical raw material savings, guidance on innovation options for life cycle impact hotspots, sustainable up-scaling scenarios, socio-economic costs and benefits, job creation potential of new technologies, market potential, recyclability benefits of new waste valorization options, etc. By clustering the available state-of-the-art technologies and these sustainability support systems, the SSIC helps the industry and research community in solution-driven optimization.
