As an interdisciplinary team of experts we develop concepts for circular economy, focusing on nature-based solutions for households, communities and the national level.
alchemia-nova is frontrunner in the field of circular economy. We are Cradle to Cradle® satellite partners since 2006 (the cradle of modern circular economy). This pioneering role paid off with big international strategies and the upcoming requirement to fulfil the circular economy criteria set out by the EU, which need to be implemented by every European Member State.
alchemia-nova supports companies and communities in combining economic potential with sustainability. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) defined by the United Nations and the EU circular economy package form the framework. Our clients experience advantages through product innovations, market share increases, cost reduction, customer loyalty, improved marketing potential, increased quality of life, revaluation of the living / working space, and much more.
Through a process of systems analysis over a series of consultations, every aspect of the businesses existing supply chain is comprehensively assessed in terms of material circularity, design for reuse, reimbursement or re-valorisation, and the potential for nutrient recovery or safe recycling. Manufacturing processes are further analysed to identify their optimisation potential and cascading utilisation strategies are recommended to re-valorise by-product... Read more
alchemia has 20 years of experience in the area of nature-based solutions for a variety of different purposes. The possibility to remediate soils and regain metals are two key areas within phytotechnology. We have experience with technologies of phytomining of metals from different sources (waste incineration ash, soils, industrial waste and mine tailings) on lab and pilot scale and agromining on demonstration scale....

We develop prototypes and bring mature solutions to market. By creating new business models we contribute to sustainable and future oriented objectives such as the Sustainable Development Goals, Cradle-to-Cradle® standards and the European circular economy strategies.
Our vertical ecosystem treats wastewater in and on buildings and can also be used for plant production. Vertical set-up optimizes the use of space whilst relying on gravity to distribute the water across the system. vertECO can be installed outdoors or indoors and combined these factors permit the key innovation of integrating ecosystem services and green aesthetics directly into buildings, resulting in multiple benefits. vertECO is a reliable cost saving ...
