Biomimicry is the practice of using nature as a source of inspiration and innovation for sustainable design and production. It involves studying how organisms and ecosystems operate, and using this knowledge to create new technologies, materials, and systems that are both efficient and sustainable.
Examples of Biomimicry in the Circular Economy
Biomimicry can play a key role in achieving a circular economy by providing inspiration for new circular design and production processes. Researchers have studied how termites build their mounds to create more efficient and sustainable buildings, and how the natural carbon cycle can inform new approaches to carbon capture and storage.
