dc.description.abstractIncreasing circularity in the supply chain of industrial processes has the potential to provide economic and environmental benefits, however it is difficult for manufacturers to understand how their by-products can be used as input to unfamiliar processes. Although there are existing digital platforms that encourage surplus resource exchanges, they do not implement automatic recommendations. A recommender system that evaluates the economic, environmental, and social impact of feasible waste transformations for a source material can help industrial decision-makers turn their waste into a more valuable product. Building on past research by others that used a graph database to model processes and materials, we implement a similar model using Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) datasets that include process data from a variety of industries worldwide. We demonstrate its ability to rank alternatives based on attributes such as transformation cost and process complexity using graph-based search queries.
