Raw materials are scarce and are becoming increasingly scarce, especially in Europe. Using less raw materials only delays the inevitable just a bit: they run out. This scarcity requires a different view on raw materials: recovery should be the greates source.
WHO ARE WE
FBBasic is a company led by Frans Beckers. FBBasic works with a core team, but moreover with an extensive network of specialists. Our people have lots of in-depth experience and have conducted many circular material projects in the past years, within FBBasic or from previous employment backgrounds.
No loss of valuable raw materials! In 98% of the cases current recycling is passive: only with the end-of-use product in our hands we start to think about a way to recover the different parts and raw materials once we no longer use the product. Our mission is to switch to active recycling. This means that in the design stage of a product it is already known how we can recuperate components and raw materials after the useful life of the product.
WHAT DO WE DO
Our main topic is the regeneration of raw materials. We develop, support and execute. We help companies, government bodies and other institutions to converse their linear production and consumption systems into a circular system, whether or not based on the principle of Cradle to Cradle®. This not only involves producing companies, but also facility organizations, financial parties, waste management companies, policy makers and logistic service providers.
