Looking for the experts behind Circle Scan, Amsterdam on mappin material flows in the city. Applying the “Circle Scan” methodology meant identifying the top contributing sectors in terms of environmental and economic impact and mapping the material flows of such sectors in the city. That is, organizing the information about the inputs used (energy, water, etc) and the outputs generated (types of waste, where they end up, etc). These mapping exercise allows for a clear understanding of where resources come from and where waste goes to, which actors in specific sectors are key and whether there are empty spaces that can be utilized differently, providing solutions to create closed loops
