Circular Economy and new models

Inventing new value-creating models to conserve resources.

The planet's resources are limited, we must conserve them locally and globally. This is driving us to shift from a linear to a circular economy. And to create innovative models based on new ways of collaboration.

New business models for waste management

What for?

In this sector, everything is changing: new players are shaking up the market, digitalisation has become a requirement, flows are multiplying, regulations are becoming more complex... and waste recovery is a major economic and environmental challenge! As manufacturers and local authorities, you are wondering how to manage your waste more efficiently and how to optimise its recovery.


What are the solutions?

Is it possible to “uberise” waste collection? Are we moving towards “Amazonisation” and the creation of "Big Data” for waste? Let's explore together new breakthrough Business Models! At 2EI, we innovate across the entire value chain. And we develop these new solutions using a flexible approach, either internally or as part of Open Innovation partnerships.

Urban agriculture

What for?

How can we meet the challenges of improving the food autonomy of cities? How can we satisfy consumers' growing demand for healthy products? How do we develop and enhance short chains and their reliable traceability? How can we integrate these objectives into your development projects? These are all issues that you, as local authorities, are facing! Urban agriculture is not a passing trend. Producing a proportion of the population's food in the very heart of cities is becoming essential.

The advantages of our partnership?

To help you bring production and consumption closer together, we are experimenting with new circular and inclusive models. These models are interrelated with our businesses and expertise, such as the agronomic recovery of waste, which all contribute to a healthier and more local agriculture.

Industrial and Territorial Ecology (Écologie industrielle et territorial - EIT)

What for?

As players in the management of an industrial region, you want to improve its economic attractiveness and environmental performance. You want to develop concerted action plans, promoting synergies and mutualisation.


We work with you to encourage a collaborative dynamic and help you initiate concrete actions through:

  • a good understanding of the activities of the different players;
  • an analysis of their economic, social and environmental challenges;
  • identification of exchangeable flows (water, energy, materials), as well as the needs for equipment and services that can be shared;
  • support for the operational implementation and evaluation of the benefits provided by the projects.
