The Longest Running Industrial Symbiosis Service in the world is celebrating its 10th anniversary! The Industrial Symbiosis Service, funded by Invest NI and delivered by International Synergies NI has achieved staggering success and to celebrate we are hosting a one day international conference at Titanic Belfast on Wednesday 31st May 2017.
The longest running facilitated Industrial Symbiosis service (IS) in the world is celebrating its 10th Anniversary. The Invest NI funded service will be marking the occasion with a Conference at Titanic Belfast on 31st May 2017 to showcase the achievements of organisations across the world supporting and demonstrating resource efficiency through the application of Industrial Symbiosis.
The Industrial Symbiosis service ensures that materials are circulated within the economy, encouraging reuse and the avoidance of disposal to landfill. Over the ten years of operation the service has achieved significant results for the businesses involved:
- Delivered cost savings of £24.8 million
- Generated additional Sales of £16 million
- Created and saved 96 jobs
- Diverted 390k tonnes from landfill
- Reduced Green House Gas Emissions by 335,000 tonnes
The IS service is clearly having a very positive impact within the Northern Ireland economy and delegates will get the chance to hear from local businesses who have fully utilized the service and achieved invaluable results for their business. Renowned International speakers willtalk about successful application of the resource matching facility worldwide.
The afternoon session of this one day conference is all about recognition and contribution to the furtherance of the principles of Industrial Symbiosis in Northern Ireland. The IS service continues to be successful thanks to the businesses involved and we want to acknowledge and reward those companies through a short awards ceremony. This is going to be one of the highlights of the day with presentations made to businesses in Northern Ireland who exemplify sustainability and value the Industrial Symbiosis service as one way to attain their sustainability goals.
