A circular economy will look to chemistry to provide the basis of innovative products, made from renewable feedstocks and designed to be reused, recycled, or the feedstock renewed through natural processes. The substances that products are made of will increasingly be treated as a resource equal to the raw materials, and not just disposed of. This perspective discusses the role of chemists in a world without waste.
