They were immediately interested in working together to create a better world for each other, and in they coauthored The Hannover Principles: Archived from the original on May 5, Some claim that C2C certification may not be entirely sufficient in all eco-design approaches.

The center’s research produced the Biosphere Rulesa set of five implementation principles that facilitate the adoption of closed loop production approaches with a minimum of disruption for established companies. The book itself is printed using DuraBook technology.

C2C suggests that industry must protect and enrich ecosystems and nature’s biological metabolism while also maintaining a safe, productive technical metabolism for the high-quality use and circulation of organic and technical nutrients. The C2C model can be applied to almost any system in modern society: Remaking the Way We Make Things. Ordering information for 11 of those languages is below. The C2C concept foresees an own certification of its analysis [28] and therefore is in contradiction to international ISO standards and for Life Cycle Assessment whereas an independent and critical review is needed in order to obtain comparative and resilient results.

C2C principles were first applied to systems in the early s by Braungart’s Hamburger Umweltinstitut HUI and The Environmental Institute in Brazil for biomass nutrient recycling of effluent to produce agricultural products and clean water as a byproduct.

Technical nutrients are strictly limited to non-toxic, non-harmful synthetic materials that have no negative effects on the natural environment; they can be used in continuous cycles as the same product without losing their integrity or quality. When the manufacturer separates the sole from the upper parts separating the technical and biological nutrientsthe biological nutrients are returned to the natural environment while the technical nutrients are used to create the sole of another shoe.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Around the world, geology, hydrology, photosynthesis and nutrient cycling, adapted to locale, yield an astonishing diversity of natural and cultural life. The use of a C2C model often lowers the financial cost of systems. While the C2C model has influenced the construction or redevelopment of many smaller buildings, several large companies, organisations and governments have also implemented the C2C model and its ideas and concepts:.

Cradle to Cradle is obligatory reading for industrial designers, mcdonnough, executives, students, architects and anyone interested in a well-articulated alternative to how things are made that is respectful of nature and how industrial production should be in the coming decades. The dilliam was published in by North Point Press.

When they outgrow the shoe or it is damaged, they return it to the manufacturer. Archived from the original PDF on 24 July Obviously, disassembling products is not feasible at currently designed civic amenity sites, and a better method would be to send back the broken products to the manufacturer, so that the manufacturer can disassemble the product.

Cradle-to-cradle design also referred to as Cradle to CradleC2Ccradle 2 cradleor regenerative design is a biomimetic approach to the design of products and systems that models human industry on nature’s processes viewing materials as nutrients circulating in healthy, safe metabolisms.


McDonough and Braungart propose catching the problem beginning at the source: Friedrich Schmidt-Bleekhead of the German Wuppertal Institute called his assertion, that the “old” environmental movement had hindered innovation with its pessimist approach “pseudo-psychological humbug”. The authors explain how distinct types of products can be created, based on this principle: The academic research of companies lead to the elaboration of the Biosphere Rulesa set of five principles derived from nature that guide the implementation of circular models in production.

The mission of the HPDC Foundation is brought to life predominantly by staff of the Health Product Declaration Collaborative who work with manufacturers and product end-users to develop technical standards and drive the transparency necessary for a healthier built environment.

Everything can be designed to be disassembled and safely returned to the soil as biological nutrientsor re-utilized as high quality materials for new products as technical nutrients without contamination. Brezet; Allocation in recycle systems: Se inspira en la naturaleza, donde no hay lugar para el concepto de mddonough dado que wlliam residuos de un organismo son los nutrientes de otro.

This is a groundbreaking book that should be the Bible for the Second Industrial Revolution.

Cradle to Cradle, by William McDonoungh, Michael Braungart

A major mcdonougy in the optimal recycling of materials is that at civic amenity sites, products are not disassembled by hand and have each individual part sorted into a bin, but instead have the entire product sorted into a certain bin. They gifted a license to the certification system and methodology to the public through the creation of the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute.

For those of us who have a hunger to know what the next great idea will be, this highly readable book captures and challenges the imagination.
