COFA focuses on the circular economy using the 3 D's
First of all, we want to discover what practical and scientific challenges there are to create a circular product and the underlying systems. Do these questions relate to the raw material or product design? Or maybe to reverse logistics, the recovery of raw materials, or a subsequent application? We are also looking for known and new solutions. Where are these solutions already applied, and how could we apply them to new questions?
When we know what these challenges are, and know the already known answers, we know where we need to develop. Which recovered raw materials can we use, and can we anchor this in a passport? We look at how we can set up reverse logistics and what communication is involved, where we can take the next recycling step, and what new products we can make.
Ultimately it all comes down to DOING, as one learns by doing. COFA is an expert in the field of this important step: from a concept to a product and a system, and especially to circular practice! This includes reverse logistics, refurbishment and recycling, and creating new products. We also focus on maintaining value and quality, the use of social return and the identification and follow-up of products, components and raw materials.
COFA realizes the circular economy in practice.
DISCOVER, DEVELOP, DEPLOY.
We ensure that products are retrieved and recycled. This concerns newly developed, circular, but also existing, non-circular products. In the latter category, we ensure that they meet quality criteria so that they can be used again in the next phase of use. In this way we make the transition to a circular economy step by step.
We do the same for work clothing, safety shoes and other personal protective equipment. We collect, sort, dismantle and make new raw materials and / or products as much as possible. Circular products for 100%, non-circular products for more than 80%. After all, every step better than landfilling or incineration is a step in the right direction.
