Circular Economy has become the subject of a broad international discussion caused by the request for new sources of sustainable development under the conditions of qualitative and quantitative limitations of natural resources. The aim of the paper is to analyze the applied aspects of the Circular Economy on the examples of two expanding Ukrainian markets: renewable energy and waste processing. The key-points of the study are: analyses of government regulation of Ukrainian renewable energy market and trends of the renewable energy production; review of institutional basis of the waste processing in Ukraine; empirical analysis of the waste processing; exploration of the congruence of Circular Economy indicators and Innovation indexes trends. The institutionalization of Circular Economy has intensified in Ukraine in re-cent years caused by European integration processes. It is reflected in the set of laws regulating this area. Renewable energy market shows the positive dynamics in general, where bioenergy and waste energy sectors grew with the highest rates. The analysis of waste processing sector demonstrates its innovative character. Though the growth of mentioned above markets depends essentially on innovations, it has been found that the relation between Circular Economy indicators and Innovation indexes is ambiguous.

L’economia circolare è stata oggetto di un’ampia discussione internazionale causata dalla richiesta di nuove fonti di sviluppo sostenibile alle condizioni dei limiti qualitativi e quantitativi delle risorse naturali. L’obiettivo del lavoro è quello di analizzare gli aspetti applicati dell’economia circolare sugli esempi di due mercati ucraini in espansione: l’energia rinnovabile e il trattamento dei rifiuti. I punti chiave dello studio sono: analisi della regolamentazione governativa del mercato ucraino delle energie rinnovabili e tendenze della produzione di energia rinnovabile; revisione delle basi istituzionali del trattamento dei rifiuti in Ucraina; analisi empirica del trattamento dei rifiuti; esplorazione della congruenza degli indicatori di economia circolare e delle tendenze degli indici di innovazione. L’istituzionalizzazione dell’economia circolare si è intensificata in Ucraina negli ultimi anni a causa dei processi di integrazione europea. Si riflette nell’insieme delle leggi che regolano quest’area. Il mercato delle energie rinnovabili mostra le dinamiche positive in generale, in cui i settori delle bioenergie e dei rifiuti energetici sono cresciuti con i tassi più alti. L’analisi del settore di trattamento dei rifiuti dimostra il suo carattere innovativo. Sebbene la crescita dei mercati sopra citati dipenda essenzialmente dalle innovazioni, è stato riscontrato che la relazione tra gli indicatori dell’economia circolare e gli indici di innovazione è ambigua.
Keywords: Economia circolare, energie rinnovabili, trattamento dei rifiuti, indici di innovazione, sviluppo sostenibile.
