Abstract

This working paper is the introduction and exploration of the theme 'Value of waste' for the Energize festival 2015. What is the value of waste? Based on ideas concerning the lifecycle of materials it depends on where you are in this cycle: have you consumed material, then what remains is usually waste that has no value. But if the remains can function as raw materials for a product, then this same waste may turn out to be valuable. When you think in cycles like this, can you say that there is such a thing as waste at all? Or is ‘waste’ simply the stage in which materials are temporarily without value? And if so, who or what determines when something is waste?
