Urban Mining is a golden opportunity for investors who want to make a significant contribution to sustainability

“Our projects will not just be driven by financial goals but also by values that benefit both people and the environment”


Urban Mining takes a holistic view on the recovery of raw materials from waste streams and is considered as the next frontier in the Circular Economy. Within the Circular Economy, the raw materials chain is supposed to function as a closed loop. Thus, no materials should be lost. To make this happen in practice, circular business models have to be demonstrated.




As a project developer, Circular Industries is working on such circular business cases, focused on closing the loop. After 5 years of more than full-time preparation and considerable ‘learning on the job’, this has resulted in a very well thought out and truly unique project: the Urban Mining Factory Printed Circuit Boards (‘UMF-PCB’). 


The purpose of the UMF-PCB is the maximum and sustainable recovery and refining of (Critical) Raw Materials from discarded low-grade PCBs, so that these materials become available for Europe's high-tech manufacturing industries and energy transition.


Assisted by reputable organizations


Given the ambitions and size of the project, we have contracted reputable organizations that assist us with the development and financing process of the UMF-PCB. We work closely together to identify, address and mitigate all possible project risks.


More advisors will be appointed in due course, as project development progresses


Owners’ advisors:

  • KH Engineering (owners’ representative)
  • Portland Advisers (project finance)
  • Deloitte (subsidies)
  • Bird & Bird (legal-financials)
  • Simmons & Simmons (legal-contracts)
  • Herenvest (insurances)

Lenders’ advisors:

  • Palaris (technical due diligence)
  • Allen & Overy (legal due diligence)
  • VHIVA (insurances due diligence)

Funding of Circular Industries

From Circular Industries we are looking for cooperation with parties that can support us in funding the final project development costs. These development costs relate primarily to external engineering activities and external advisors, necessary to complete the project financing process of the UMF-PCB.


Please contact Niels Wagemaker if you are interested in further information. We have an Investment Memorandum and Data Room ready for potential investors.
