Increased utilization of residual products through industrial and urban symbiosis

Lecture - Enhance by-product use via industrial and urban symbiosis

Industrial and urban symbiosis enhance resource efficiency by utilizing local underutilized resources, creating new opportunities

By exploring the potential of utilizing bio- and residual products locally and regionally, new resource-efficient and circular solutions can be developed. 

Collaboration often occurs across different industries, involving materials, energy, water, as well as non-technical aspects such as infrastructure, expertise, and services. 

This is particularly crucial in planning and establishing new projects, where from the outset, consideration can be given to maximizing the utilization of residual products.

Lecture content:

  • Introduction to industrial and urban symbiosis
  • Several good examples of existing establishments
  • Success factors for achieving resource collaboration
  • How can your organization organize efforts to find more initiatives regarding resource collaboration and symbiosis

Collaborating on residual products can contribute to increased resilience and profitability for the business. Having knowledge of local resources also provides opportunities for better municipal planning for establishments, where there is awareness of which resources can and should be utilized in an area.

EU legislation increasingly requires businesses to demonstrate continuous improvement in resource efficiency. For instance, new industries must now outline how residual heat will be managed before obtaining establishment permits.
