The circularization of linear product chains, based on the zero-value residue (0-emissions) industrial ecology system approach (ZRIES). This level is designed to reevaluate and transform linear production value chains and their alternate chains of residues, waste, and obsolete materials (RWOs). The ultimate purpose of this level is to generate multiple chains of processes needed to transform and valorate RWOs.
Have been designed for the generation of self-sustaining (self-managing) communities through the assembly of clusters of circular systems of industrial-social-environmental value in a region.The circular value extended ecosystem approach (CVES) is designed to articulate the synergies of a cluster of multiple ZRIES. The ultimate purpose of this level is to create self-sustainable benefits for the overall project.
The sustainable sharing value system approach seeks to provide the enabling conditions such as resources, capacities, synergies, as well as the resource allocation management, technologies, infrastructure, regulations, and inclusive governance of institutional policies, to engage all interested stakeholders, needed to the assembling of sustainable system of significant impact on the economic, social, and environmental activities of a community or industry.
The SWIT framework enables the design of a mechanism capable of transforming linear production chains into a viable ecological cluster of firms, institutions and supporting stakeholders which delivers sustainable increasing returns for all the participants through the leverage of non usual business opportunities found on waste, obsolete products, unused capabilities and residue revalorization.
