WHAT WE DO
One of the biggest challenges we face in ensuring the future growth of our industry and private sector is the scarcity of resources and the shortage of raw materials.
We are currently using natural resources at a much faster rate than nature is able to produce them, while only 20 per cent of waste streams have satisfactory recycling solutions.
To tackle this challenge, while also helping to meet our climate commitments, NCCE is working to achieve a faster transition to a circular economy through the increased use of side and waste streams as an input factor for new products, value chains and markets. We aim to do this by facilitating cooperation, innovation, and good operating conditions for our members.
Members contribute to this goal by:
- Developing new technology and circular business models for waste and side streams.
- Developing new value chains and markets for waste and side streams across existing industries.
- Influencing operating conditions to open new markets for products based on waste and side streams.
We are a practical-minded cluster, and we establish working groups centred around different topics to achieve our goals. Here, members can get involved as participants and be the driving force to solve our collective challenges in collaboration with other cluster members.
At present, we have working groups for multiple topics, and the groups themselves organise how they work. The working groups bring a resource from the administration or the board. Feel free to contact us if you would like to participate or if you have input on topics other than the ones we currently have:
