Upcycling Forum - A solution that focuses on facilitating the circular economy process within the manufacturing and construction sector.

By providing a matchmaking platform between manufacturing and construction companies, Upcycling Forum is trying to solve the problem of inefficient waste management.

Manufacturing and construction companies produce important amounts of waste - an average of 360 million tonnes in the manufacturing sector and of 900 million tonnes in the construction sector, in the European Union each year. Upcycling Forum aims at connecting these two sectors with design companies, who upcycle the material into products, and design branding companies, who will then sell the product. Upcycling forums allows product developers to become members and to access special offers. Companies can also go directly on the website and see what materials are relevant for their company and buy them directly. There is a possibility for the companies to trade directly with other companies disposing of their waste in order for them to find the best strategic partnership.
