In the efforts to develop a sustainable, low carbon, resource efficient and competitive economy and ultimately the green economy in the European Union, circular economy is an important conceptual and practical approach with essential contribution. Latest developments in eco-innovation in Romania are those dedicated to implementing the circular economy, as a way to increase the waste recycling and the resource productivity (one of the lowest in the European Union). In this respect, the main objective of the paper is a theoretical and methodological grounding and analysis of some concepts, trends and issues required for the implementation of the green economy in the EU and Romania, as well as for the sustainable regional economic development. The role of creating and developing ecoindustrial parks, namely eco-innovation parks EInvP is not limited on their potential of increasing the resource efficiency but also to implementing and making work the new modern synergic and circular business models. In the paper we shall refer to some successful and pioneering circular economy enterprises or industrial eco-systems working in Romania, as good practices and pilot projects. The conclusions and recommendations refer to the importance of spatial eco-innovation represented by the industrial symbiosis as a high form of circular economy.
