The Zero Waste Consultant

Innovate like Nature

because All Matter Counts

You seek :

Transformative sustainable Solutions
For Profitability, Circularity and Innovation
of all your matter.

As Region, Organisation and City

Our Industrial system is undergoing rapid transformation due to Breakthrough Technology development, Climate Change and Scarcity of global Raw Resources. These trends are increasing affecting risk profiling of Business and regional Economies.

The Transition towards a Circular industrial system offers opportunities for resource efficiency, effective manufacturing, lower unit costs and product diversification. The challenge is creating resilient Business Models based on (Eco)Innovative solutions with Zero Negative environmental impact.

The good news, our Spaceship Earth has solved many of the sustainable challenges already. Emulating nature is proving to be the direction where new innovations and business models are emerging from. The biggest challenge is how to be resourceful and innovative in creating profitable innovative business models which are good for society, business and our Spaceship.

Zero Waste, Total Productivity of Matter, is the next Paradigm Shift where No Pollution exists and only Cash flows.

Sustainability, Circular Economy & Profitability Themes

Resource Efficiency

Doing more with less
driving lower unit costs

– Resource Scarcity (Climate Change, Globalisation, Depletion)
– Commodity Price Volatility Risks
– CO2 emission elimination
– DeCarbonisation & Energy Transition
– Elimination of Emissions, Pollution and Waste
– Urban Metabolism (Urban Architecture & Planning)
– Internet of Things / Digitisation / Digitalization

Healthy Products

Increase the value of your products

– Healthy Materials (Material input & End of Life Analysis)
– Transformation (recovery) Analyses
– Zero Waste, Pollution and Emissions (does no harm)
– Resource Material Security
– Healthy Manufacturing
– New Business models (Matter as a Service)
– Customer Loyalty & Stronger Brand

Valorisation Waste Streams

Waste does not exist (Outputs become new Inputs)
Generate more Cash Flows from your Biomass / Minerals

– Biomass “Waste” to Products
– Green Chemistry
– Closing the Loop
– Product Portfolio Diversification (Economics of Scope)
– New “waste” transformation opportunities
– Competitive Value Chain (Waste becomes resource)

Innovative EcoTechnology

Healthy Manufacturing
Driving cost reduction, resource utilisation and technology breakthroughs

– Stranded Assets Strategy
– Applying Physics
– Green Chemistry (Applying BioChemistry)
– Material Valorisation & Recovery
– Resource Effectiveness (use what is locally available)
– Use of Regenerative & Renewable Resources
– Developing new Products and Equipment (leads to lower OPEX)


We think about Zero Waste as an business opportunity, from Money to Matter and Energy and back again, Because all Matter Counts. This is our different perspective which is a tailor made approach.

The Zero Waste Consultant bridges (Eco)Logical Thinking with (Eco)Nomical Doing. We apply knowledge from Natures Patterns to develop Innovation Strategies which offer lower manufacturing process costs and lower unit costs.

System Dynamics lies at the heart of what we do. The Circular Economy requires a revaluation of Value Chains and Breakthrough technologies. We focus converting your negative (environmental) costs into positive cash flow’s.

A visionary pragmatic route map is what we envision to achieve. Visionary because you understand the market & technology trends. Pragmatic because you have clear design guidelines how to manoeuvre your organisation into the Future. Tailormade because Every Business Counts.

Purpose, Leadership & ROI

Your profitability is your main management concern. Top priorities are reducing costs and improving production efficiency rates. You are doing more with less as resources are becoming scarce. Being Sustainable is a nice to have or is it?

We will challenge you to look at your main environmental concerns as business opportunities. It is evident when wasted matters can be transformed it lowers purchase costs, increases income cash flows and increases profit margins

Our (Eco)Innovation methodology helps capitalizing business opportunities and increasing your (regional) competitiveness. It will help to get control of your Materials, Water and Energy supply chains. In the process you also are adapted to any Climate policy and requirements because your value chain is ready and flexible.

Valorizing of Matter is what we are good at. We assist you in becoming sustainable by design because it just offers better business opportunities. Doing the right thing, because all your Matter Counts


Brainstorming (2)


The ideal start is we get to know each other. For about 2 hours we investigate the potential inside your Organisation and your Value Chain. Most likely we will find already some interesting starting points.

Guaranteed an interesting conversation including a fresh perspective to your challenges

* Pro Deo for Students
* Discount for individual conversations

Opportunities (2)


We will intervene for a day or so with your team(s) to get them going. Expect a deep dive and us asking you many questions about your current Operation and Value Chain. We help to map your real Value Chain and possible leverage points.

This intervention will generate new insights and interesting Short Term and Long Term solution directions. It includes among others:

  • A Keynote to start the conversation
  • Value Chain analyses
  • Various relevant case studies
Busniess Model Canvas


For a longer period we will be working besides your team(s). During this period we assist you in finding, solving and implementing various cost reduction and cash flow creation projects. This includes setting up criteria how to achieve a Zero Waste, Zero Pollution and Zero Emissions Value Chain. This could include for instance:

  • Matter Flow Analysis of your Value Chain
  • Systemic Design of your Value Chain
  • Biomass Valorisation (incl Research and Development assistance)
  • Manufacturing & Product Improvement (incl Research and Development assistance)
  • Business Development with new Suppliers & Clients
  • Leadership Development & Training


For Business Professionals our Masterclasses are a good source to gain insight about the sustainable developments and solutions currently underway. These Masterclasses will help put trends and developments in perspective for strategic decisions making.
