Press release from Fraunhofer UMSICHT

Closing material cycles in the construction sector and in carbon technologies

In order to implement sustainable production, sustainable consumption and circular economy in practice, both systemic and technical solutions are required. Following an idea of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, these solutions are to be created in so-called CIRCONOMY® Hubs. These are Germany-wide networks that bring together partners from science, industry, associations and society to focus on a specific area. Two of these networks have already started their work: the hubs "Material Cycles in the Construction Sector" and "Circular Carbon Technologies CCT".
