NextChem’s Green Circular District® model introduces a paradigm shift, which turns on its head the concept of waste as a problem that must be done away with, offering a type of chemistry based on the recovery of resources that would otherwise be lost.

In 2015, the European Commission adopted a circular economy action plan to foster and accelerate Europe’s transition to a circular economy in order to guarantee sustainable economic and employment growth. In 2018, four new EU Directives on the circular economy came into force, setting ambitious recycling goals for Member States; Italy transposed these Directives into law in July 2020. With the Green Circular District®, this is now possible.

NextChem has designed a Green Circular District model which combines various technologies, meeting decarbonisation, increased recycling and reduced incineration and landfill targets.

Waste valorization is an integral part of an energy transition strategy which cannot exclude green chemistry. Through this proposal, NextChem is designing a model for the future that we can build today, using proven technologies and economic sustainability.

NextChem’s Green Circular District lends itself particularly well to green conversion of conventional industrial sites using processes based on the use of fossil fuels, which would be replaced with circular renewable fuels, thereby lowering climate-altering emissions. It is an environmentally, socially and economically sustainable solution.
