Raw materials are scarce and are becoming increasingly scarce, especially in Europe. Using less raw materials only delays the inevitable just a bit: they run out. This scarcity requires a different view on raw materials: recovery should be the greatest source.
Cirmar and FBBasic are connected companies led by Frans Beckers. We work with a core team, but moreover with an extensive network of specialists. Our people have lots of in-depth experience and have conducted many circular material projects.
No loss of valuable raw materials! In 98% of the cases current recycling is passive: only with the end-of-use product in our hands we start to think about ways to recover the different parts and raw materials once we no longer use the product. Our mission is to switch to active recycling. This means that in the design stage of a product it is already known how we can recuperate components and raw materials after a use period. This requires supporting tech systems, tailored to specific and a variety of circular challenges.
Our main topic is the regeneration of raw materials and other (natural) resources, at the same time improving our natural environment. We develop, deploy and help create views on positive impact. We support companies, government bodies and institutions to turn their linear production and consumption system into a circular system, whether or not based on the concept of Cradle to Cradle®. Our business partners are not only manufacturers, but also facility service providers, building and construction companies, wholesale organisations, financial organisations, waste management companies, policy makers and logistic companies.
