An open-source platform
for mapping public waste data
as the essential trigger for a Circular Economy

Circular Economy
Challenge

Governments struggle
to support Circular Economy
with effective policies.

Businesses cannot find or trade waste materials
in the right amount and quality.

Product and urban designers
fail in providing realistic circular solutions
as too few successful precedents exist.

Public Data

Waste data is collected by
public authorities solely for monitoring purposes
without valorizing its full potential.

We take this data out of the drawer,
map it
and embed it in geographic space tracing
the flows from the waste producer
to the treatment or the eventual disposal locations.

geoFluxus

Therefore geoFluxus can:

assess circularity on different spatial levels:
country | region | municipality | neighbourhood | district

match companies to nearby secondary raw materials
according to the necessary quality, quantity and type

assess the impacts of circular designs using site-specific data:
life cycle | material flow | environmental impact

Prototype

We are a spin-off of an academic project at the Delft University of Technology, in the Netherlands.

We have successfully implemented our project prototype in collaboration with the local governments in:

the Netherlands | Amsterdam
Italy | Naples, Trento
Poland | Lodz and Katowice
Belgium | Ghent
Germany | Hamburg
Spain | Bilbao
Slovenia | Maribor
Hungary | Pecs
Croatia | Umag

Team

We are

- platform developers
we aim to upscale the platform to include broader geographical and material range,
improve user friendliness, interoperability and analytical capabilities

- data hosts
we use technological solutions to take care of data sensitivity and legislative agreements

- consultants
we provide training to our platform users to get the most [circular solutions] out of it

Ambition

Our goal is to become a one-stop-shop for
facilitating business matchmaking,
providing worldwide circularity indicators and
conducting spatial material flow assessment.

We want to democratise public waste flow data,
create new business opportunities and accelerate the
transition towards the circular economy with the largest
possible environmental benefits.
