FISSAC team participated in the side-event ‘Industrial Symbiosis in Europe’, held in the World Resource Forum Antwerp 2019 

It was a great opportunity to join presentations and demonstrations of the ongoing activities. The focus was on the FISSAC Industrial Symbiosis Platform, with interactive tutorial demonstrations.

9 European funded projects with a focus on Industrial Symbiosis joined forces to organize this side-event where they presented tools and success stories of Industrial Symbiosis and discussed the future of the field.

The projects are:

This seminar was organized within the activities of the Interreg Central Europe NUCLEI Project coordinated by CRIT.

The aim of the seminar was to provide the key elements to understand the new industrial paradigm underneath Circular Economy and its potential applications in the context of manufacturing companies.
Firstly, theoretical principles and aims of Circular Economy were illustrated by highlighting its role in the European agenda for economic development, and underlining its role as a lever for business management (design, servitization, reverse logistics).

A special emphasis was given to the interconnections with the Industry 4.0 development plan and related technologies, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D Printing, Big Data & Analytics, Clouds and digital platforms.
Moreover, an approach to Circular Economy based on life cycle analysis (LCA) was illustrated. The LCA is one of the main tools for the assessment of resource use and process planning, making it a useful tool for the development of Circular Economy strategies.

The 8th PROSIN conference gathered again a wide mix of industry, researchers and decision-makers to highlight the possibilities and risks associated with the circular economy.

“Change or Die”, as the Eyde Think Tank, who led us through the day, put it. The various speakers showed a range of tools that can facilitate a successful transition in this paradigm shift. The opportunities are there but we need action and adaptation.

Digitization as an enabling technology, Industrial symbiosis as a tool for regional growth and shrinking footprints and last but not least, highlighted by the Minister for Climate and Environment himself, the underlying need for change.
