Making the most out of what we manufacture

Reducing emissions requires a change in global consumption. We need to ensure that everything that humanity manufactures can be efficiently reused, recycled and re-loved

Make once, use forever and keep innovating.

Mattereum is working to replace the “take, make, waste” cycle with a circular economy.

When we buy things, we don’t generally expect to sell them again. This is where it all went wrong: consumers use things until they break and become pollution, with minimal recapture of their embodied carbon.

But if we buy things and intend to resell them, we will buy goods that we expect to hold value for a long time. These goods will be resold by all of their future owners, until they are genuinely used up. Our financial, legal and technological innovations enable each seller to perfectly document their goods and each buyer to be fully protected.

This simple harmony preserves the value of the goods for all future buyers, and shifts the incentives of the global economy towards full sustainability. Useful things will be priced by their value not their age.

The circular economy preserves the world’s innovation at its heart. Older goods are used and resold over and over again, spreading the benefits of the global economy without creating new environmental damage.

The Circular Economy: Finance Meets Data to Create an Abundant Regenerative Future

Imagine that all manufactured goods have digital twins on the blockchain. As the assets change hands and experience wear and tear every repair is logged. Soon we can see what is repairable and resellable, what can be patched and mended, and what is just dead-loss scrap which will be reduced to its components and upcycled into new manufactured goods.

Green Blockchain, Green Economy

How Blockchain could save, not destroy, the planet. A discussion on why new Blockchain systems, such as Avalanche, are so much greener than Bitcoin.

The blockchain (distributed ledger technology) is one of the most controversial technologies of the decade. Bitcoin has the environmental footprint of small countries, and is widely considered to be an ecological disaster. Can new blockchain systems offer a better way forward?
