Upcycling is being used both at product/object level and industrial material level. At both levels upcycling has been increasingly recognized as a promising means to reduce material and energy use. At the industrial material level, McDonough and Braungart (2013,2002), pioneers of industrial upcycling (i.e. the cradle to cradle concept), have advocated radical design innovations for perpetually circular material reuse as opposed to current recycling practice, which is considered as down-cycling.
Upcycling is offering in economic and business terms, on top of the positive environmental impact, and is easy to impose it as a habit, in the same way as recycling. It is true that various constraints are associated with the very concept of upcycling: the uncertain availability of the material, the obligation to have a precise plan for the material before it is collected, storage issues, etc. But if these barriers were removed and these constraints intelligently integrated into manufacturers’ processes, nothing would prevent the upcycling trend from turning into a profitable, sustainable industrial approach.
