The Upcycling Forum platform facilitates the mapping and overview of waste materials, such as types, quantities, and locations, thus helping to create upcycling projects and facilitating cross-sector collaboration. It is also possible to upload and sell your own residual materials via the platform.
Upcycling Forum already has 300+ members, including municipalities, companies, pension funds, architects, engineers, demolition businesses, and more who are ready to learn more about waste reduction through upcycling waste projects.
The Upcycling Forum platform is a digital platform that makes it easier for the construction, manufacturing, and design industry to create upcycling solutions from waste materials and to simply measure the CO2-reduction effects. The platform gives access to a project tool, a material bank, and a mapping app.
The previously mentioned industries are producing around 8 million tons of waste per year in Denmark and 600 million tons in the EU. Upcycling is a way of thinking, where waste can be turned into valuable solutions, extending the materials’ life-cycle, avoiding the usage of virgin raw materials, and reducing CO2-emission.
