A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life.
Our common goal is to reduce waste but based on reputable global forecasts this remains a real challenge for humanity. The next best thing is to recover and reuse as much as possible, to make a circular economy work.
The patented 3WAYSTE® technology is at the heart of the circular economy:
Sorts all waste, and recovers and diverts an unprecedented 90% of resources contained in waste;
Converts these resources into products of greater value than the value of the waste itself, adding to economic productivity.
The more resources we recover and reuse, the more precious resources we preserve. We save on polluting incineration that often burns valuable resources that could have still been used and we save on landfills, which contribute a substantial amount of greenhouse gases to our climate.
The unprecedented waste recovery and diversion achieved by 3WAYSTE® means less landfills and less mass incineration. In addition, 3WAYSTE® plants are ultra clean and meet the strictest environmental standards permitting construction in proximity to urban centers, thereby saving on noise pollution and transport-related carbon emissions.
We believe, technologies such as 3WAYSTE® are an important tool in our quest for sustainable development to protect our planet and our common future.
