Want to discover the latest on industrial symbiosis and the future of sustainable industrial practices? Join our event to hear experiences and case studies from successful industrial symbiosis implementation, find out about tools and gain access to guidelines to kick-start resource efficiency in your own industry.

By achieving industrial symbiosis, European industries will become more resource efficient and therefore more competitive. Territories will be revitalised with industrial links, and communities will be involved in the transformation of the European industrial system.

Gathering businesses, policy makers, academia, standardisation bodies and financiers, this event will explore tools and best practices to support the European process industry in its transition to a circular economy.

The event will be dedicated to knowledge sharing, presenting both best practices from businesses successfully implementing industrial symbiosis practices, along with key tools to help companies kick-start their journey towards resource efficiency and sharing.
