Focus topic

Circular value creation

In a circular economy, raw materials and materials are kept in circulation for as long as possible: Used products are not simply thrown away after use, but are the starting point for new products and processes. Digitization methods play a crucial role in this. They help to connect and control these processes. This new form of business is interesting both for companies with established products and for startups that can use this approach to offer entirely new goods, processes or services.
