The annual Sustainable Ireland Awards took place last week at the glitzy Ramada Plaza and it was a very special night for the International Synergies NI team as it was our first year sponsoring an award alongside Invest NI. The Industrial Symbiosis Award was aimed at businesses in NI that harness the principles of Industrial Symbiosis to achieve real cost savings and environmental benefit. Entries of this award were described by the judges as of a very high standard but after much deliberation, RecyCo were selected as the worthy winners. The Omagh based waste processing and recycling service provider impressed the judges with their application which detailed their development of an outlet for conveyor belt off-cuts as a drainage and membrane protection layer in landfill engineering.
RecyCo have been members of the Industrial Symbiosis service since 2008 and in this space of time have used the service to develop and expand their business. They have been regular attendees at Resource Matching Workshops, using these events to make new business contacts and help them achieve cost savings. These cost savings have been achieved through a well thought out and organised team who offer local alternatives to landfill, saving money for their clients and providing new revenue streams for the client’s businesses.
We were delighted to have been a part of such a prestigious occasion and we congratulate RecyCo on their well-deserved achievement.
