SCALER (SCALing European Resources with industrial symbiosis) aims to increase the uptake of industrial symbiosis across Europe. Under the European Union’s Horizon2020 initiative, the project will develop a set of best practices, tools and guidelines, helping businesses and industrial sites work together to ensure sustainable resource use.
Our vision is to successfully scale up the delivery of value embedded in European physical resources (materials, water and energy) through efficient and quick implementation of industrial symbiosis across the whole European territory. By achieving industrial symbiosis, European industrial companies will become more resource efficient and therefore more competitive. Territories will be revitalised with industrial links. Communities will be involved in the transformation of the European industrial system.
SCALER was launched in November 2017, and will have a duration of 2.5 years.
