Circular Economy


What is Circular Economy

The Circular Economy concept seeks to reduce carbon emissions and the consumption of raw materials, open up new market prospects and increase the sustainability of consumption. It is a reaction to the Linear Economy orthodoxies that have shaped traditional development that results in waste and pollution excesses.  

As a Native American proverb very aptly says: “We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”
The Circular Economy principles are very readily applicable to the agronomy and horticultural sectors Worldwide. Evolve International has the experience and expertise to provide clear support and advice.


In essence, this includes:

The adoption of a scalable, sustainable, and future proofed approach will optimise organic waste processing (food waste, green waste and biosolid water residues) whilst providing world leading, nutrition rich, topsoil, and value additive outputs. 


Why practise Circular Economy?

Clear principles of:

•    Circular, sustainable, and holistic in approach
•    Value additive and PR generative, fully supportive of using only green energy
•    Externally investible as a cohesive Circular Economy proposal
•    World leading, ground-breaking environmental performance
•    Anaerobic Digestion and waste to energy schemes
•    Waste composting 
•    Waste mitigation strategies and treatments
•    Reducing pollution and environmental harms


Sustainable growing solutions:

•    Maximise organic materials recovery to create new, sustainable nutrient rich soils.
•    Production of Biochar for the generation of new soil, and the maintenance of healthy soils.
•    Recovery of Biosolids and nutrients aligned to the water sector strategy.
•    Nutrient recovery developed in parallel with the production of virgin nutrients.
•    A truly circular, world leading approach to ecologically sound organics management.


Value additive outputs and materials, such as:

•    Soils plus Fertiliser, Biochar and Recovered Nutrients to maintain them
•    Carbon capture / sequestration / off-set
•    Biogenic fuels (Syngas, methane) also, heat, adsorption chilling and Carbon Dioxide
•    Cellulose and organic fibres for food-based packaging (where appropriate)
•    Growth media for algal and insect protein generation
•    Plant health and yield enhancement
•    Animal health and welfare

Strategic Analysis:

•    Detailed investigation of current scenarios sector by sector of organic waste materials and where most optimal outcomes can be achieved with a holistic Circular Economy Strategy.
•    Liaising with all relevant stakeholders in the design and approval of the overall Circular Economy Strategy for Organic materials. 
•    Creating a rigorous technology selection criterion to ensure the highest innovation opportunities with all risks identified, quantified, managed, and mitigated.
•    Ensuring alignment of and integration of Water Strategies
