REFLOW aims to provide a real-time resource management system for monitoring and articulating the dynamic flow of materials from cities, including plastics, textiles, food, wood and packaging. The technology will rely on a set of indicators such as the type of flow, the location of origin, the composition, the quantity and the quality of resources, which will facilitate the design of innovative business models for circular practices at the level from the city.

The 6 pilot cities involved in the REFLOW project will take advantage of the technologies developed by the consortium to track and trace the flow of materials. REFLOW will deploy high impact circular practices through mobile and multi-channel platforms, adapted to the local context of each city.

By demonstrating the economic impact of innovative practices in the circular economy, REFLOW will show how the repositioning of production in urban and peri-urban areas will promote positive and relevant results. The project will combine information and communication infrastructure, free access, participation and inclusion of communities through participatory third places, such as makerspaces.

En apportant la preuve de l’impact économique des pratiques innovantes en matière d’économie circulaire, REFLOW montrera comment le repositionnement de la production dans les zones urbaines et périurbaines favorisera des résultats positifs et pertinents. Le projet associera des infrastructures d’information et de communication, un accès libre, la participation et l’inclusion des communautés par le biais de tiers-lieu participatif, tels que des makerspaces.
