From Linear to Circular Economy

A new smartphone is released and millions of consumers purchase it even though they already own a working phone. A television set breaks down and is replaced by a new one, rather than being repaired. In a linear economic model, products are made, used and discarded, generating waste and more resource extraction to build new ones.

The circular economy considers how resources are managed and how waste is perceived. It affects the entire lifecycle of a product, from initial design and the materials employed to the use of the product, its repair, reuse and the transformation of its parts into a new product.

In TRC we work together with our Customers to generate the necessary tools that simplify the processes of repair and refurbishment of electronic equipment.

Telecom operators have a constant motion of the Customer equipment park. The equipment collected from the Customers resulting from churn and maintenance processes, need to be transformed into new equipment to be sent back to the network. This reuse result not only in a better use of the natural resources and waste reduction, but also in a reduction of the investment in new equipment. The turn around time of about 4 days in this process reduces the need for new equipment and reduces stock.
