What is Circular-Economy-Engineering?

Circular-Economy-Engineering is an economic system in which products and services are traded in closed "cycles". Circular-Economy-Engineering is also referred to as the renewable economy, which aims to maximize the value of products and materials. Our focus at Arvato is to create this system that is sustainable and highly efficient. We refurbish technical hardware and bring it back into circulation.
