Recently, the think tank "Industrial Resource Strategies" published the brochure "Blockchain Technology for Industrial Production and the Digital Circular Economy", which contains numerous contributions from representatives from science and industry – including iPoint.
The 101-page brochure introduces the topic in an easy-to-understand manner and comprehensively highlights the use of blockchain technology for industrial production and the digital circular economy. To this end, it looks at existing information flows and data along value chains and lifecycles. In addition, the brochure offers insight into current projects as well as an outlook on emerging business models and a new interaction between the players.
We are pleased that iPoint was able to contribute several articles to this brochure:
Making data traceable and tamper-proof (Andreas Schiffleitner)
Digital twins in the digital circular economy (Joerg Walden & Martina Prox)
Blockchain brings transparency to raw material supply chains (Maroye Marinkovic & Joerg Walden)
Blockchain as a tool to enhance supply chain management – the example of SustainBlock (Dr. Katie Boehme & Maroye Marinkovic)
Data traceability and use cases – from mining to the finished product, with a focus on conflict minerals (Andreas Schiffleitner & Sebastian Galindo)
How can blockchain support sustainable business models? (Joerg Walden & Gunther Walden)
Blockchain as a catalyst for collaboration and coopetition (Joerg Walden & Maroye Marinkovic)

About the Think Tank:
The THINK TANK "Industrial Resource Strategies" was established in 2018 jointly by the German state of Baden-Württemberg and partners from science and industry (including iPoint). It is intended to provide impetus in raw material and resource efficiency issues, point out paths, and identify trends. The aim is to advise politics and industry on a scientific basis.
