In Spain, MIDE (Madrid Innovation Driven Ecosystem) and the Sacyr Group selected five digital initiatives out of all those presented in their “Call for Innovation in the Circular Economy”. This was reported by the EI (Investment Strategies) portal.
The challenge arose from the following question: How can the recycled origin of materials be certified in order to include them in the value chain?

For this reason, it is necessary to identify solutions that can be used to certify that the raw materials generated with waste in the plants (…) are in fact of recycled origin, as described in the EI article.
In this context, the aim is to “promote the circular economy and provide safety and quality control for this type of material or raw material”.
Specialists from MIDE, Sacyr and IBM selected the finalist projects on the basis of five criteria: “The degree of innovation of the solution, its feasibility, the equipment, the simple implementation and the approach to the proposed challenge”. .
