Sustainable Production and Consumption by Upcycling
Dr Kyungeun Sung
 UK target: Reductions in
GHGs by 80% from 1990
levels by 2050.
 Government’s
commitment: RCUK
Energy Programme.
 CIE-MAP goal: Identify opportunities that may ultimately deliver
a reduction in GHGs.
Start of upcycling research in 2013
 Net Zero target: a government commitment to
ensure the UK reduces its greenhouse gas
emissions by 100% from 1990 levels by 2050.
Sustainable Production and Consumption by Upcycling
Dr Kyungeun Sung
Upcycling
Sustainable Production and Consumption by Upcycling
Dr Kyungeun Sung
 Creation or modification of a product from used materials, components or
products which is of equal or higher quality or value than the compositional
elements
 Neologism and umbrella concept
 ‘creative’ or ‘advanced’ repair, reuse, refurbishment, redesign, remake,
upgrade, recreation, remanufacture, recycling,…
 Main practices in circular economy
 Alternative consumption (cf. replacement purchase)
 Alternative production (cf. based on virgin materials)
Examples and benefits
Sustainable Production and Consumption by Upcycling
Dr Kyungeun Sung
 Environmental: extending lifetimes of products, components and materials >
increasing material efficiency > reducing solid waste > reducing industrial
energy consumption > lowering GHGs
 Economic: creating jobs (industry) + saving money (households)
 Social: emotional/psychological well-being (households)

Sustainable Production and Consumption by Upcycling Dr Kyungeun Sung
  • 4. Upcycling Sustainable Production and Consumption by Upcycling Dr Kyungeun Sung  Creation or modification of a product from used materials, components or products which is of equal or higher quality or value than the compositional elements  Neologism and umbrella concept  ‘creative’ or ‘advanced’ repair, reuse, refurbishment, redesign, remake, upgrade, recreation, remanufacture, recycling,…  Main practices in circular economy  Alternative consumption (cf. replacement purchase)  Alternative production (cf. based on virgin materials)
  • 5. Examples and benefits Sustainable Production and Consumption by Upcycling Dr Kyungeun Sung  Environmental: extending lifetimes of products, components and materials > increasing material efficiency > reducing solid waste > reducing industrial energy consumption > lowering GHGs  Economic: creating jobs (industry) + saving money (households)  Social: emotional/psychological well-being (households)
