industrial symbiosis

Industrial Symbiosis connects industries and creates opportunity for business.

The principle behind industrial symbiosis is quite simple; instead of being thrown away or destroyed, surplus resources generated by an industrial process are captured then redirected for use as a ‘new’ input into another process by one or more other companies, providing a mutual benefit or symbiosis. These mutually profitable links are not restricted to materials, they include resources such as; energy, wastewater, transportation, asset utilisation and even expertise.
