CCPE® innovation radar

How innovative are ideas and solutions that contribute to the transformation to the Circular Plastic Economy? How can a comparison with the market and research landscape be made without much effort? For this purpose, CCPE employees are developing an innovation radar to record, analyze and visualize contributions to the transformation to the Circular Plastics Economy.

The innovation radar uses the results of market research, trend analyses and own know-how to classify products and processes in the current innovation landscape of the Circular Plastics Economy – and to derive market opportunities. The architecture regarding the definition of the technological maturity levels (= scaling of the radar axes) and radar categories is completed. A first prototype, which enables the automatic visualization of innovation entries in the form of a radar, is currently being tested with the latest innovation news from the industry.
