Production processes often follow straight value chains. This results in unwanted side streams and by-products – mostly waste products. We set ourselves the task of finding extraordinary, surprising, perhaps bizarre, but in any case, valuable industrial waste streams and used them as a starting point – as raw materials for a new material, a new product, a system that works circularly instead of linearly. The project focused on the explorative and experimental examination of diverse materials and their further processing as well as the networking of different industries and processes for the development of sustainable product and business concepts. With the support of external partners, concepts, materials, services and application scenarios for waste materials were developed that cross-link and circulate. In the course of the discussion, manifestos arose which take a clear stand on the subject of sustainability.
