Industrial Symbiosis  

Improving productivity through efficient resource management

Industrial symbiosis is a systems approach to a more sustainable and integrated industrial economy that identifies business opportunities to improve resource utilisation (materials, energy, water, capacity, expertise, assets etc)

The Invest NI Resource Matching Service  is the longest running facilitated Industrial Symbiosis programme in the world. It has been delivered by International Synergies NI Ltd since inception in 2007. To date it has achieved over £43million in economic benefit for the businesses that have resource matched.  This has diverted over 400k tonnes of valuable resources from disposal.

International Synergies Ltd is acknowledged as a global leader in applied Industrial Symbiosis
