Through the project LOWaste (Local waste market for second life products), Ferrara is experiencing a pattern of circular economy based on waste prevention, products reuse and material recycling supported by a public-private partnership framework. Starting from some pilot studies and tests, the project laid down the foundation for – and has seen the emergence of – a genuine local circular economy district with a focus on waste management in a circular economy.
