The circular economy and inland ports
19 April 2016
The circular economy has an important potential for inland ports. Port areas are attractive for the recycling industry. The main reason for this is the proximity to cities, industries and the terminals. They are the providers of the supply for the recycling installations. The feedstock provided by big cities and the industry is generated locally. The terminal generates international feedstock. Inland ports provide crossing points between transport modes of waste streams with connections to hinterland and on-site industrial activities and a nearby urban setting.
