PRP®Inkoop

The entire process from (and the preparation on behalf of) harvesting and/or extraction of resources and all people involved in that process up to ‘use’ and ReNtry®, that is being deployed regarding a procurement process.

PRP® A CIRCULAR ECONOMY

A circular economy is an economy that globally and regarding all aspects meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, by intentionally making all actions of mankind regarding resources and people in that economy restorable to an earlier and/or original state.

PRP®Cycle

All separate periods in the process initiated by procurement, regarding all people and resources, prior, during and after ‘use’.

PRP®Virgin resources

Resources that have not been deployed:

-for the purpose of the growth of resources
-after harvesting of resources
-after mining of resources.

PRP®Reutilization(level)

The Reutilization(-level) on what level will the results of ReNtry® meet the definition of a circular economy:
PRP®SameUse
PRP®ReUse
PRP®Upcycling
PRP®Recycling
PRP®Downcycling
PRP®Thermal Recycling

PRP®ReNtry®documents

Recording of the composition of the total mass of the delivery, and the reutilization level at the time of delivery and mutations thereto within the PRP® contract, until the time of ReNtry®.

PRP®ReNtry®

Securing the reuse of the total mass at the time of delivery into (again and again) the next cycle and for all changes thereto within the PRP contract, wherein the Reutilization-level for the individual components of the mass are captured in ReNtry®.

PRP®Thermal Recycling/Incinerate

Reusing a product, project or resource after the initial ‘use’ in the 1st cycle as fuel.

PRP®Downcycling

The use of a product, project, or resource after use in the 1st cycle and/or all of the following cycles, in such a way that the quality of the end result and/or all resources stored in the end result, is reduced, or may only become a similar result by adding virgin resources.

PRP®Recycling

The use of a product, project, or resource after use in the 1st cycle and/or all of the following cycles, in such a way that the quantity and quality of the end result and/or all resources stored in the end result, is equal to the level before use.

PRP®Upcycling

 The use of a product, project, or resource after use in the 1st cycle and/or all of the following cycles, in such a way that the quantity and quality of the end result and/or all resources stored in the end result, is higher than the level before use.

PRP®ReUse

 The use of a product, project, or resource after use in the 1st cycle and/or all of the following cycles, with the same 'appearance' and/or by adding material or energy.

PRP®SameUse

 The use of a product, project, or resource after use in the 1st cycle and/or all of the following cycles, with the same 'appearance' without adding material or energy.

PRP®Use

The period as part of the procurement process between delivery and ReNtry®
