  Panel discussion: Are decorative surfaces ready to meet the circular economy challenge?

In circular economy waste does not exist, only resources. Materials are based on renewable resources and given back to the environment in a naturally regenerative process.

•  What are the latest developments in adoption of the circular economy principle in the decorative surfaces value chain?
•  What are the challenges & opportunities in using the Cradle-to-Cradle concept in the decorative surfaces and wood panel design (bio-chemistry, biomimicry, recyclability, etc.)?
•  If viable bio-solutions can be created, how far off are we in their sustainable implementation?
•  What is the role of consumers in the bio-design development? Are they the drivers or inhibitors?
•  Communicating the benefits of bio-design to brand owners and consumers: recycling schemes, certification & labelling.
