The Circular Readiness Level® (CRL) indicates the extent to which principles of the Circular Economy have already been taken into account in a product or product system. Fraunhofer CCPE has developed a Self-Check for the Circular Readiness Level® of products and product systems and invites companies to test the Self-Check CRL.
In order to accompany companies on this path and to derive product-specific indications for options for action and a higher Circular Readiness Level® of their product or product system, Fraunhofer scientists have developed the Self-Check for the Circular Readiness Level® (CRL). You are invited to test the Self-Check CRL in pilot applications and to develop it further according to your requirements. If you are interested, please contact us to discuss the currently implemented concept and concrete results of your sample products. We will guide you through the list of questions with 15 criteria, such as multifunctionality or disassembly of the product, ability to be shared, reparability, refurbishment and remanufacturing, sorting of the end-of-life product, plastics recycling or use of secondary, renewable and/or biodegradable plastics. As a result, you will receive an assessment of the Circular Readiness Level® of your product or product system and initial recommendations for action. The pilot applications will enable the further design and fit of the Self-Check for the industry, so that it can be transferred into an online tool within the next months.
If you are interested in the pilot application, please contact Ms. Kerstin Dobers or Ms. Anna Schulte.
