Circular Economy Framework in Cigarette Filter Company (CFC) Using Material Circularity Indicator (MCI)

Rosi Ana Qolbi and Moses Laksono Singgih


Living in a finite planet and operating in linear take-make-dispose system strains our resources and stresses businesses with increased material costs and scarcity. As a result, there is a growing desire among businesses to adopt Circular Economy (CE). In order to track the transition to a more CE, it is important to obtain adequate tools to monitor and quantify this CE journey. The Material Circularity Indicator (MCI) is computed using the feedstock’s virgin, reused, and recycled inputs. However, the present MCI tool does not encompass material flows within B2B company that produces intermediate goods. In this study, a modified MCI is presented and tested to accommodate the circularity journey of Cigarette Filter Company (CFC). As a result, switching to cellulose as a filtration media is preferred in order to achieve
the maximum MCI calculation within CFC.
