System innovation


Focus of the CircThread project, funded by H2020, is the implementation of a Product Information Catalogue to facilitate the exchange of data about the product itself.
With the aim of giving a remarkable boost to the circular economy, the database will gather information about the entire product life-cycle, such as the different components and raw material the product is made of, problems that led to product failure and its End-of-Life.

Thanks to the accessibility of the collected data, the project aims to have impacts on different field: life extension of products, ensuring the right to repair, identification of Critical Raw Materials cycles, creation of routes by waste management and recycling companies to manufacturers.

ERION will be responsible for defining and implementing, in collaboration with other relevant partners, the Italian pilot. The aim of the pilot will be to test the data exchange platform developed by the project. The pilot will focus on large household appliances, in particular dishwashers. ERION will also support exploitation, communication and dissemination activities.
