Circular Innovations for household Waste: Stimulating the Circular Economy for Textiles and Organic waste Cities and regions play a crucial role in the transition towards a Circular Economy. The Eastern Netherlands regions Twente and Cleantech Region have ambitious programmes aimed at reducing and reusing household waste.
