Law and the Circular Economy
Assesses whether English law can accommodate the circular economy. Reviews key features of the circular economy, its status within organisations, and how it may be distinguished from the sharing economy. Considers whether regimes applicable to the treatment of waste may need reform to operate in circular economies, and how the personal property framework of relative title, possessory title and abandonment offers an effective capturing mechanism.
