Our Circular Economy Concept: The Christof Clean City Plan (CCC)
Christof Industries has developed the Clean City plan in the course of the last decade. The major focus has been on finding ways to complement the technical and industrial experience of more than a century with state-of-the-art know-how and technologies. A global team of 50 professionals is pursuing the goal of realizing a circular economy by employing financially and environmentally feasible waste-to-value projects in order to reach a zero waste solution.
The importance of the circular economy becomes clear in the ideal scenario of a city in which resources are used to their maximum utility throughout their life cycles with the final goal of reaching a zero waste situation.
When it comes to recycling organic waste, we are already one-step ahead thanks to our cutting-edge technologies. Our goal is to optimise, by improving product efficiency and removing waste from supply chains, and to loop, keeping components and materials in “closed loops” through manufacturing and recycling.
CCC offers 360° competence to perform industrial plant engineering and construction for waste processing. By combining experience from a vast number of successfully executed projects, Christof Industries can help to solve municipal, corporate and industrial waste challenges. The holistic concept is technology agnostic and driven by incorporating the experience of waste audits, project development, industrialization, engineering, construction, EPC(M) execution, service maintenance, operation and upgrades. This concept can be applied and adjusted to any waste sorting system implemented by a city regardless of its transportation or waste fractions
The Christof Clean City team is a lean and extremely competent one of about 50 experts. With the ability to call on the support of more than 4,000 professionals as well as partner companies, the team is able to execute, operate and maintain multiple projects at the same time. The team is technology agnostic and solutions driven, incorporating the experience of project development, industrialization, engineering, construction, EPC execution and upgrades.
The term circular economy encompasses a range of processes, in which resources are used for their maximum utility throughout their lifetime, thus maximizing sustainable use and eliminating waste. The final goal is for the economy as a whole to move towards a more sustainable future, ultimately reaching a zero waste situation. This stands in sharp contrast to the traditional approach, in which goods are manufactured from raw materials, sold, used and then discarded or incinerated as waste.
The circular concept fosters wealth and employment across generations. Against the backdrop of resource constraints, circular business models will gain an ever greater competitive edge in the years to come, by making it possible to release the value of materials, labor, energy and capital embedded in products after the end of each cycle of use. This enables the world economy and population to grow in a more sustainable way than the traditional linear model.
