Industrial Symbiosis is an organisation model that promotes the establishment of synergies between industries. Just like it happens in nature, through symbiosis companies can cooperate in a way that a benefits both, since the exchange takes place for the industries involved.
So, through Industrial Symbiosis, it is possible to detect which resources are underused and become waste prematurely. These resources could be used as raw materials in industries in another sector to re-enter the value chain. This guide will support you to:
- Discover the Industrial Symbiosis, its benefits, and different typologies.
- Know more about this organisation model through case studies.
- Learn about tools, barriers and success factors to take into account when implementing it.
