CORALIS: Creation Of new value chain Relations through novel Approaches facilitating Long-term Industrial Symbiosis

CORALIS will develop and demonstrate viable industrial symbiosis approaches combining business and management strategies and innovative technology-based enablers. The approach will be demonstrated in three real industrial areas.

The main objective of CORALIS is to create pathways for the decarbonisation of resource and energy intensive sector value chains through the implementation of viable industrial symbiosis approaches combining new business and management strategies with innovative technology-based enablers.

This whole approach will be demonstrated in three real industrial areas covering different sectors, geographical dimensions and resources, improving the knowledge basis and laying the foundations for exploiting the potential of Industrial Symbiosis in EU process industry.

Goals of CORALIS:

Goal 1: To acquire deeper understanding on Industrial Symbiosis performance and conditioning factors from the technical, economic and managerial perspective

Goal 2: To promote the design and management of Industrial Symbiosis projects by empowering the figure of the Industrial Symbiosis facilitator and delivering novel tools for processes monitoring and data sharing

Goal 3: To enhance the profitability and sustainability of symbiotic interactions by defining new methodologies for economic evaluation and business models for industrial partnerships.

Goal 4: To implement novel symbiotic value chains in three real industrial areas for their decarbonization through the deployment of innovative technology enablers

Goal 5: To provide technical and management guidance to three industrial areas in successfully exploiting identified symbiosis synergies

Goal 6: To raise awareness and ensure the exploitation of the IS potential in REIIs by fostering cooperation and knowledge transfer among stakeholders and contributing to standardisation and policy bodies
