From disposable to reusable: circular opportunities for hospitals

September 01, 2022

CIRCO organizes Tracks: companies from one industry come together around a specific theme or with the whole chain. During 3 design days they work on concrete circular products, services and business models. CIRCO is happy to share these findings. In the CIRCO Track Medical Disposables, ten companies from different healthcare chains took a close look at their products and processes. From this came four clear overarching learning points. The coming together of companies also led to immediate results: a pilot was started for the local collection of mouth caps from dentists and smaller healthcare institutions in the Amsterdam region. The "design for recycling" method can also ensure that healthcare products are designed differently so that they are easier to recycle.

The circular economy does not arise by itself. CIRCO (a program of TKI-CLICKNL) focuses on getting a new market moving. CIRCO therefore activates - with the support of the government - entrepreneurs and creative professionals to (re)design products, services and business models in order to then do circular business.
