About the Training Program

Our global society cannot last in an unsustainable manner. We deal with issues of waste, resource depletion, climate change, resource scarcity, and biodiversity loss. All are challenges. We have trouble getting materials, reducing environmental impacts, maintaining the supply chain, and reducing costs. Thus, we aim to maintain our economy while meeting worldwide population, industrial development, and resource needs.



At DEISO, we believe that circular economy thinking is crucial for today’s modern societies and industries. It is becoming vital for countries’ economies. We have designed this program to train employees on how organizations may produce value by reusing and recycling items, how engineers can build novel solutions, and how you can help make the circular economy a reality. The circular economy concept solves material supply concerns by reusing resources. The shift from a linear to a circular economy involves decision-making and resource allocations within the organization. It requires human resource development and preparation for circularity. How to use the correct data, tools, and sustainability methods..

Trainees will learn to rethink and act within their organization’s daily economic system and its supply chain. We train our clients on how can the circular economy help our linear economy’s problems. We do that from cradle-to-grave lifecycle thinking to help industrial ecology and environmental engineers professionals address the circular economy issues within their organization. But first, we prepare them with the knowledge, skills, and methods required for the circular economy.


This course is for anybody interested in sustainability, sustainable development, environmental engineering, new business models, and entrepreneurship by mastering the required knowledge and skills of the circular economy.

Program Outline

The program was created by combining modules from our basic and advanced circular economy training programs. The result is an accelerated training program that can provide all the fundamental aspects of circular economy with advanced topics. It prepares company professionals to employ economic circularity in their organization and become closer to circular economy experts and ready to step up with more advanced courses at DEISO or by their plans or perspectives on how they want to develop themselves in the field.
This program not only introduces participants to circular economy principles but is also worth it for your company or you as an individual professional, advances your skills in the field, and accelerates learning at an advanced level.
The circular economy program is unique because it combines modules from our basic and advanced circular economy training programs. An intensive workshop seeks to assist people and companies in making their businesses circular. This curriculum has a unique characteristic because it teaches learners to methodology, data, and tools via a practical case study.
It covers the circular economy from concept to waste management, resource efficiency, circular economy business models, evaluations, progress monitoring, incorporating methods such as Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Material Flow Analysis (MFA), and modeling agents in assisting systems and developing circularities strategies within the organization, country, or with the local government.
Unlike the basic training or the advanced programs offered by DEISO, this course sets you on the path to becoming an expert in the highly sought-after subject of circular economy in a short while.
The outline is summarized below:
  • What is the circular economy?
  • How does the circular economy work?
  • The fundamental principles behind the circular economy model: are reducing consumption, reusing materials, and recycling. How to keep the products and materials in use, and how to design system innovations.
  • Learn about the benefits of a circular economy and circularity and how to work towards them.
  • We focus on several benefits of the circular economy in this training program: reduced waste and environmental impact, reduced reliance on natural resources, increased efficiency and innovation, economic opportunities, circular economy business models, modeling, evaluation, and progress measuring approaches. A practical case study demonstrates all.

Outcome & Syllabus

Module 01: Linear Economy vs. Circular Economy

(3 hours)

In this training module, we will look at how the circular economy is defined, how it differs from the so-called “linear” system, and how it ties to other sustainable schools of thought. We hope that after this module, you will have learned the fundamental concepts of the circular economy and why you should invest in a transition to a circular economy.



This session exposes trainees to the circular economy and contrasts it with the linear economy. Before delving further into the circular economy, it is critical to grasp the fundamentals of each economic model. The module also presents to the participants the tools, methodologies, data, and software they will use in their circular economy journey and how organizations may recoup value at the product or component level. We’ll look at the issue from academic (literature), industry, and business perspectives.

Module 02: Dealing with waste and the 3R concept

(4 hours)

This module discusses how we can take realistic system design actions to deal with waste. This session examines how we might deal with waste in a practical system design manner by seeing waste as an opportunity rather than a problem. We will show intriguing circular case studies and how you can recognize change opportunities in your organization. How can strategic waste magnet strategies be integrated to complete the circular economy loop? This session will go through 4 kinds of waste: municipal waste, e-waste, hazardous waste, and chemical waste. We’ll look at how appropriate integrated and comprehensive waste management may have an impact via waste reduction, reuse, and recycling. We will also look at the materials found in Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (or e-waste), how they may be returned to the supply chain, and how we may reduce our carbon footprint while increasing resource efficiency. Because resource efficiency is an essential issue in the circular economy, we shall explore it using examples. The 3R (Reduce-Reuse-Recycle) concept will be put into action.

Module 03: Business Value in a Circular Economy

(3 hours)

Closed-loop supply chains and reversed logistics provide new business possibilities, whether they are current or recent. This module investigates value generation and developing innovative business models in a circular economy. This module also exposes participants to “longer-lasting goods,” in which the smaller the loop, the better the system’s profitability. We examine product life extension from environmental engineering and sustainability viewpoints: economic, ecological, and social aspects.


Module 04: Thinking Within the Systems

(3 hours)


The shift from linear to circular should not be underestimated. This module will discuss the extent and duration of the transition. It will also ask, is the circular economy sustainable? Evaluating and determining the key areas to focus on within a product life cycle, an organization’s supply chain within its domestic and global activities, including the suppliers. What tools and methodologies do we need? How do we measure the pa progress of the circular economy? We will discuss the knowledge behind how to develop circular economy incarcerators designed for your project or organization’s needs.

Module 05: Circular Systems Engineering and Transition Management

(3 hours)
We will expose you to systems thinking in this module for the transition from linear to circular economy. When working with complex systems, a systematic approach to issues and circumstances is required. When closing cycles, engineering solutions are needed besides adopting this approach. By the conclusion of this session, you will have learned how to utilize systems thinking while assessing and transitioning to circularity and compelling instances of engineering solutions.

Module 06: An Introduction to Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)

(2 hours)
This module will introduce you to the LCA. It will teach you about the benefits of LCA, how it is used to evaluate the environmental impacts of circular systems, and how it aids circularity and strategic planning from technical perspectives. After completing this module, you will grasp the concepts of LCA and be able to go further with LCA training courses by DEISO and incorporate it with the circular economy journey.

Module 07: An Introduction to Material Flow Analysis (MFA)

(2 hours)

This module will introduce you to the concept of MFA and how to incorporate it among LCA of effective circular economy action plans.

Module 08: An Introduction to Agent-Based Modeling (ABM)

(2 hours)

Agent-Based modeling is a powerful tool for investigating circular economy scenarios. This module will introduce you to ABM, how it works, and when it may be used.

Module 09: Workshop - With a Practical Case Study

(6 hours)

The last module is a workshop with a case study in which you will put what you have learned to use. We will look at Saudi Arabia’s waste management system as a practical case study. We will analyze the system from an environmental and economic standpoint and investigate how corporate waste recycling and resource efficiency might be implemented nationally. This case study will not go into detail. Still, it will provide a quick overview of all concepts covered in this training program, including how to collect data, what tools are required, how to apply the methodologies, how to identify areas for improvement, and how the circular economy concept, LCA, MFA, and the modeling approaches presented here can help. We will discuss how improving a waste management system can benefit local industries from a circular economy viewpoint.


This course does not address LCA in-depth. Instead, it rapidly summarizes the idea, its applications, and how to incorporate it into your company. LCA is a detailed field, and we provide a variety of LCA training subjects. The same may be said for MFA since we also provide MFA training courses. And we offer compressive waste management training programs. However, using a case study, we aim to make it practical for our trainees’ and their organizations’ most significant outcomes. Proving the effectiveness of since-based strategies like LCA and MFA and integrated waste management approaches would be beneficial.
