Circular Economy Hub
New national Circular Economy Hub to provide leadership in UK bid to create a sustainable future
The National Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Research Hub (CE Hub) led by the University of Exeter is supported with £3.5 million from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), to lead national efforts to create a sustainable, circular economy where fewer resources are used and more waste materials reused – delivering huge benefits to the environment and UK economy.
The CE Hub will work with the five Circular Economy Centres (CE Centres) that were recently announced to explore how reusing waste materials in a wide range of industries, including textiles, construction, chemical and metals, could boost the UK economy as well as deliver massive environmental benefits, providing national leadership to facilitate the exchange of knowledge across the five centres and with the UK’s wider research and innovation landscape.
