Industrial symbiosis

The Industrial Decarbonisation Strategy published by HM Government in March 2021, defines industrial symbiosis as: ‘The process by which energy, resource and waste flows are shared between neighbouring industrial facilities, allowing for certain by-products of an industry or industrial process to become the raw materials for another. Application of this concept allows materials to be used in a more sustainable way and contributes to the creation of a circular economy.’
