INDUSTRIAL SYMBIOSIS

Industrial Symbiosis is an association between two or more industrial facilities in which the waste or by-product of one becomes the raw material for another.Applying the principles of industrial symbiosis to business practices enables companies and industries to utilise material streams,water,energy and other assets more efficiently,yielding greater overall productivity.

This approach enables businesses to find reuse outlets for effluents and recoverable energy streams, and can optimise the use of industrial assets, improve logistics, and increase knowledge transfer; creating a demand pull on eco-innovation – in effect increasing the productivity of all available resources.
