Brightlands Circular Space

The goal of Brightlands Circular Space (BCS) is to connect two worlds: that of academic and corporate innovation and commercial scale-up. BCS stands for an innovative system-integrated "open space" approach, in which, under favorable conditions, innovative circular feedstock and materials options can be "practiced" to scale up.

Efficient and inclusive ecosystem

The facility focuses on three main steps in the circular value chain: 1. converting waste streams into valuable plastic raw material streams through preprocessing and sorting, 2. converting waste through mechanical or chemical recycling, 3. designing new materials and products from recycled material streams and designing products that can be easily recycled at the end of their useful life. This facility is a physical place in which fusion of teaching, research and experimental testing takes place. The combination of design, sorting and recycling is of great value.
