A circular economy as an alternative for Brazil''s sustainable growth: Analysis of the national solid waste policy [Economia circular como alternativa para o crescimento sustentável brasileiro: Análise da política nacional de resíduos sólidos]
Resumen: Objective: to present a global view of the circular economy, showing the most important elements of the implementation of this concept and its inherent practices. Methodology: the procedure chosen is qualitative, exploratory, and descriptive, based on the review of the documents and norms pertinent to the measures aimed at solid waste management in Brazil. Relevance: the research contributes to the academic discussion about a concept that is a world''s concern, based on the production and disposal of waste, investing in reuse, repair, and renovation of materials and energy, and aiming at economic growth and human development while preserving the environment and sustainable development. Results: the results show that, in Brazil, the actions to incorporate a circular economy into production and consumption need to overcome different barriers and challenges to render it viable according to the sustainable development criteria. Contributions: the main contributions are linked to the emphasis on the Brazilian actions to transform municipal solid waste into energy and describe the key aspects related to the regulation of reverse logistics in Brazil, in order to identify its link with the circular economy. Conclusion: there is a need for a deep cultural change, having as its starting point environmental education, at all levels, linked to a good process of awareness raising and social communication.
