Why is it important?

We compare practitioners and academics perspectives. This could be useful to increase virtual actions as: increasing waste disposal; promoting remanufacturing; enhancing the efficiency of critical resources such as water, energy, gas and CO2; and improving business models and companies' mission.


Study Industry 4.0 for circularity was a pleasure. We hope that sharing knowledge in this field could be helpful to strengthen actions to lower industrial impacts on the environment.
