Industrial symbiosis

The focus group is completed.

The focus group Industrial Symbiosis, was aiming for creating a model for industrial symbiosis. Focus was on building an environment in which one company’s residual resource becomes another company’s raw material. This requires that companies begin to act together to create optimised flows.
If such flows are created between various business activities, it contributes to energy efficiency as well as to a reduction in resource use. Malmö’s harbour side was used as a pilot area.


Ongoing work on industrial symbiosis:

Shared Energy is Double Energy
The Vinnova-financed project Shared Energy is Double Energy is working to identify activities, resource needs and flows in Malmö to help realize the potential for industrial symbiosis. The city’s strategies and policies linked to the redevelopment of the port area are being reviewed to identify ways public policies and regulations can support such activities.
