Abstract:
The benefits of symbiosis in the process industries, which involves linking separate companies so that the by-product of one company may be used as a feedstock to the other company, are discussed. The traditional view of industry should be changed into one in which the system is considered as an integrated whole, whereby both energy and materials can be optimized leading to waste minimization minimization and the waste products from one process becoming the raw materials for another. Industrial symbiosis engages traditionally separate industries in a collective approach to competitive advantage involving the physical exchange of materials, energy, water, and byproducts. Businesses and other agencies are collaborating in producing a more sustainable society, by applying the principles of industrial ecology in the form of industrial symbiosis. The key to industrial symbiosis are collaboration and the synergistic possibilities offered by geographical proximity.
