Progress in Industrial Ecology, An International Journal (PIE), Vol. 15, No. 1, 2022

Abstract: Circular economy (CE) is an opportunity to change the industrial system suffering from the pressure of undesirable waste and resource scarcity. In recent years scholars have come up with insightful cases in this area, but analysis of cases on CE of an Asian region is very limited. The assessment of CE cases in Asia across different sectors, regions, countries via different cycles was done in this study to comprehend the trends. Therefore, a literature review of CE case studies in the Asian region was carried out from 2008 to 2019. The case studies were chosen from relevant company websites, articles, reports, and Circular Asia platform. The most popular method to close the CE loop includes 'recycling'. Importantly, while much work has been done on the technical cycle of CE, future work could look at identifying ways to close the biological cycle of the CE.
