Circularity Hotspot Analysis Method


The Circularity Hotspot Analysis is a method for cities to identify urban circularity hotspots for fourmaterial categories. Firstly, the aim of the method is presented, before explaining how general circularity hotspots can be found with the help of combining strategic objectives for the circular economy with material flows. The next section outlines the related material flow analysis data inputs and how their weights and shares are employed, to produce intermediate outputs. Lastly, the outputs, including the qualitative approach to determine the final ones in the form of contextual circularity hotspots are discussed.
