Abstract The circular economy is not a new concept in economics. Francois Quesnay and the Physiocrats of eighteenth-century France introduced the concept into economics. From a bio-chemical perspective, the law of conservation of mass needs to be considered implying mass can neither be created nor destroyed but allocated differently over time and space in a closed system similar to planet earth. Recently the concept of the circular economy received high policy attention. In the agri-food system the debates are related to issues such as reducing food waste and emissions in food production including greenhouse gases, recycling of food packaging materials and plastic in particular, and cascading use of food products including the use of fertilizing products.
