Following the Projecte d’Especialització i Competitivitat Territorial «HubB30, més enllà de la circularitat», which aims to transform the territory around the B30 road axis, a participatory process was carried out with circularity experts and key actors in which the following strategic lines emerged. Some of them have sub-challenges, which can be solved with knowledge.

Program participants also have the option to propose solutions to their own waste-related challenges. 

  • Provide quality data in relation to the circular economy of the territory. In order to conduct studies at different scales, the data should be disaggregated, geographically and by sector.
  • Create open and transparent databases, such as Open Circular Data, which functions as a real-time virtual observatory. The use of Big Data to face this challenge.
  • Distribution of resources in a transparent and fair way, through a digital platform.
  • Use of common tools for analyzing synergies and opportunities for industrial symbiosis, and input and output flows (energy, waste, water, sludge, AMB viewfinder type).
  • Consumer collaboration strategies, retailers, recyclers and manufacturers to generate logistics systems for flexible plastic packaging that allow their recovery.
  • Tool capable of evaluating the recyclability of containers according to design and material.
  • Coatings that do not hinder the recycling of paper and cardboard.
  • Redesign of plastic trays without absorbent sheet or made with the same material as the tray (single material).
  • Transform organic waste into primary and secondary packaging.
  • Bio-based inks, adhesives, binders or pigments.
  • Biodegradation of polyurethanes in varnishes, lacquers or paints in wood products.
  • Recycling and recovery of post-consumer SAN.
  • Food sustainability.
  • Automotive sector.
  • Improve the formulation of mixtures of inks, hardeners and other materials that can be applied to textiles.
  • Promote the creation of spaces and infrastructures that catalyze the circular economy (repair cafes, library of things, FabLabs, spaces for experimentation with resources, etc.)

  • Optimize the efficiency in the use of the resources of the territory (materials, water, energy, spaces, knowledge).

  • Promote formal and informal education on circularity.

  • Promote a territorial rebalancing (economic, social and environmental). Connect and balance urban and rural space.
