[ Thanks to the myUpcyclea Inventory module, the various stakeholders of the community can provide information on their deposits, needs or processing capacities.
To do this, they use the circular passport model and the associated universal nomenclature to formally characterize the data entered.
These data are then used by the artificial intelligence algorithms of the Management module to make proposals for ecosystems and industrial synergies to stakeholders of the community. ]
Create economic synergies and local jobs thanks to ecosystems that enhance the value of the community’s resources
By implementing the proposed ecosystems, and relying on local industries, reduce the carbon footprint and waste of the community’s resources
Be an exemplary territory in terms of circular economy and industrial ecology, by controlling your resources and monitoring the regeneration of your territory’s resources
Develop synergies between community’s actors, and invite them to myUpcyclea in order to facilitate sharing and exchanges between partners
The myUpcyclea Inventory module makes it possible to identify and characterize the territory’s deposits of used or mutualizable resources.
It also makes it possible to identify and characterize the needs of stakeholders in the community for reusable resources or secondary raw materials to integrate local production processes.
Finally, it makes it possible to identify and characterize the transformation capacities of the community’s stakeholders in terms of collection, sorting, control, recycling, upcycling or transport.
myUpcyclea’s circular passports make it possible to accurately characterize the resources of the community by recording their compositions and their future lives.
This information will be used to feed the artificial intelligence algorithms of the myUpcyclea’s Management module.
The myUpcyclea Management module makes it possible to create and manage ecosystems for the valuation of the community’s used resources, in the form of reuse or upcycling/recycling.
It also allows data to be shared between different communities inventory modules, in the event that the resource inventory is distributed among different entities in the community.
The circular indicators automatically calculated by myUpcyclea, based on the information available in the circular passports, allow to measure :
I was familiar with the concepts of the circular economy, but for me it was all “wind”, not concrete enough. Upcyclea brought scientific and technical expertise, and as a result it was comfortable. Without Upcyclea’s expertise, there would have been no implementation of a healthy and circular building. During this project, my vision was broadened to include resource management from the scale of the building, to the scale of the neighbourhood and then the community.
With myUpcyclea, the territory is no longer the sole manager of the spatial occupation but also the manager of the resources and flows that cross it. The communities are able to see which volumes of materials have been mobilized, processed and not optimized enough.

During my first meeting with the team in 2013, I was introduced to a new paradigm where waste does not exist, a paradigm that generates innovation. It is the possibility of reconciling development models that benefit everyone. I was then waiting for demonstrators.
Since then, more than 20 projects have been supported, all very different and 60 jobs have been created. Upcyclea has allowed us to develop a systemic vision, fundamental to developing the circular and fundamental economy in the face of climate and social challenges. Thus each project has developed in a much more important way than we had originally imagined. myUpcyclea now supports some of them.

myUpcyclea offers you a scalable approach thanks to 3 modules with unique functions in the world.
A “Passport” module to access the Upcyclea circular passport library, an “Inventory” module to identify your deposits, needs and partners, and a “Management” module to create and manage ecosystems that generate income and positive impacts on health and the environment.
myUpcyclea uses a circular passport format inspired by the European standard developed by BAMB. This serves as an identity card for used resources and, combined with a universal material nomenclature, allows the identified deposits to be brought closer to market needs for repaired products and secondary raw materials.
myUpcyclea offers a specific process for characterizing materials, products and transformations based on a semi-formal description of the information. This ensures an easier vision of potential ecosystems and allows data to be better taken into account by our intelligent algorithms.
The accessibility of Google Cloud Platform servers is guaranteed with a monthly uptime percentage of 99.95%. myUpcyclea guarantees the Customer access to the platform with a monthly uptime percentage of 95%.
The ecosystems created in your myUpcyclea library will be used to continuously improve the recommendations and propose the most relevant ecosystems through learning neural networks and heuristic rules derived from more than 12 years of expertise in circular economics.
myUpcyclea is based on software developed entirely by Upcyclea’s teams in Paris, Nantes and Tallinn (Estonia). This gives us maximum control over the software components, while remaining independent of any third party company. Upcyclea’s specialists perform all development, administration, database management and security tasks in-house.
We are constantly improving intelligent algorithms capable of exploiting the semi-formal descriptions entered in myUpcyclea, as well as several relevance criteria (economic profitability, carbon impact, etc.), to help myUpcyclea operators in building ecosystems. Our work also consists in combining this intelligence with the knowledge base of transformation processes, resulting from the Cradle to Cradle missions that we have been carrying out since 2007 in France.
Upcyclea provides data hosting, maintenance and security for its SaaS platform. Upcyclea ensures the activation of security protocols for authentication, authorizations, and cryptography; as well as standard protections against XSS and SQL code injections into forms. The data is stored on the servers of the Google Cloud Platform company, located in the European Union.
Data is encrypted when it passes through Google Cloud Platform’s internal networks, and when it is stored in database tables, temporary files and backups.
Each SQL Cloud instance includes a network firewall, network access control to database instances with permissions.
