Urban Waste Raw Materials Citylab

Urban Waste Raw Materials Citylab

The Floriade zone and the adjacent De Steiger trading estate have been identified in the MRA action agenda as pilot areas for the transition to a circular economy. This makes Almere an ideal location for experimentation in the field of circular initiatives. An experimental space is to be provided, designed to attract trailblazing businesses and provide them with facilities to further develop the circular economy. In collaboration with the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment and the Ministry of Economic Affairs Almere will be setting up a dedicated environment within the Steiger trading estate following on from the commissioning of the Upcycle Centre in 2017, a national pilot project for an Urban Raw Materials Citylab.
