Ricardo Energy & Environment and Recycling & Waste World are hosting a series of four FREE webinars addressing topical issues such as the circular economy, waste treatment solutions, due diligence and integrated waste management strategies.

Webinar schedule

Real world circular economy solutions

With the circular economy having gained real traction over the last 2 years, most noticeably in Scotland, this webinar will provide detailed insights as to what the key opportunities are at national, city and organisational level. As part of our work with Zero Waste Scotland and other partners in Scotland Ricardo Energy  & Environment have been identifying, scoping, developing and delivering many circular economy projects across all levels of the economy from individual business models (leasing, deposit return schemes, supply chain management) to national and sector-level strategies.

This webinar will be led by Jamie Pitcairn, our lead Circular Economy practitioner, and will draw on a couple of private sector case studies (tbc) covering the following topics:

  • A review of the best circular economy business models and what makes them so good
  • A circular procurement strategy: why procurement is fundamental to the circular economy (case study: Blackwood)
  • The bioeconomy: the phenomenal opportunities available through better utilisation of our bioresources (case study ZWS & IBioIC).

Date: 7 November 2017
Time: 11:00 - 12:00


Presenter: Jamie Pitcairn, Director for Scotland – Resource Efficiency & Waste Management, Ricardo Energy & Environment
