Circular Economy and Space Economy represent two milestones in our future. What are the connections between these two sectors and what are the opportunities for businesses?

Thecircular economy underpins the development strategies of the most innovative companies, and is an essential element of the recovery plans of various international institutions. It influences consumer choices and behavior, and directs the development of territories toward sustainability. In the space of a very few years, we have gone from theoretical formulations to practical application in a multitude of areas.

Even areas seemingly far removed from everyday life, as Space might be, have helped to develop ‘circular’ technologies and applications. The International Space Station is the most advanced example of a sustainable eco-system where every resource cannot be wasted and many of the technologies designed for Space have spin-offs on Earth.

Both the Circular Economy and the Space Economy are a driver for innovation and in the short term will have an impact on all businesses, large and small, and their technology choices.

Emanuele Bompan, an environmental journalist, directs Renewable Matter, the first international magazine dedicated to the circular economy. He collaborates with several newspapers, including IlSole24Ore, La Repubblica, National Geographic, and has won the European Journalism Center IDR Grant, the Google Digital News Initiative, and the Middlebury Environmental Journalism Fellowship. He wrote the book “What is the Circular Economy” (2021), which was also released in an English edition.

Anilkumar Dave, senior partner at Infinite Area, was formerly head of the Innovation and Technology Transfer Unit at the Italian Space Agency. He is now a member of the Advisory Board of the Global Entrepreneurship Network Space and the Space Economy Observatory of the Politecnico di Milano.
