Abstract: There has been recent increasing interest in research into circular economies. The drive for industries to maintain or even augment their activity levels, while simultaneously demonstrating environmental concern represents one factor. Traditional economic frameworks process resources with waste being discarded directly into the environment, while a circular economic framework emphasises the recycling of waste into new resources. The contrasting goals of these frameworks lead to contrasting workflows and supply chain management. This paper examines differences in supply chain models relating to each economy framework using supply-chain operations reference (SCOR) framework stages, specifically the process modelling pillar and the performance measurement pillar. The application of these models, including the behaviour of actors and the necessary changes they should implement, is subsequently analysed through the illustrative case of cassava farming.

Keywords: supply chain management; SCOR model; cassava farming; circular economy.
