Moving beyond recycling, future-focused companies are looking for ways to reduce and reuse waste, including cloud-based platforms. As the cost of harvesting resources increases, some are thinking about innovative ways to turn waste into commodities. Some companies are exploring methods to give a new twist to the idea of a circular economy by creating value in what was once considered a deficit.
