SUMMARY:

the circular economy (CE) is a relatively recent concept which represents an economic model or paradigma of systemic approach, that prioritize the reinsertion of products and its waste in the supply chain, with the aim of promote the sustainable development and its correlated benefits. However, there are many barriers in areas such financial, estructural, operational, attitudinal and technological (RITZÉN & SANDSTRÖM, 2017) that makes difficult the implementation of this concept. One of the elements to support the transition to the circular economy are the emerging information technologies, idea reinforce in the work of Khitous et al. (2020), that links 8 research trends in CE, which one of them is about "enabling CE throughout internet technologies, whose topics mention technologies like big data and internet of things (IoT) and presents a futures research direction of "How do smart (digital) technologies enable the transition towards CE". Considering the research gap about the information technologies and the circular economy context, the present research has the aim of investigate the information technologies' use in companies inserted on recycling and waste management's sectors. In this field, it's looked to describe the employed technologies and the functionalities and values of the business model to, posteriorly, list through semantic network how the technologies found helps to "confront" the circular economy problems, thus allowing to evaluate the potential of circularity of each technology. The general system theory (BERTALANFFY, 1968) will be adopted as the basing construct of the study, because of the systemic characteristics of circular economy, in especial the integration of economic, environmental and social sustainability's systems. The research concentrates on the qualitative methodology, being based on content analysis proposed by Bardin (2010), which embraces the processes of documental analysis, coding and categorial analysis. The Atlas.ti software is the employed tool to optimize these qualitative processes. Therefore, the research could contribute about the way the information technologies can support the transition for a circular economic model, highlighting the different types of technologies found and the sustainability systemic links.
