Award winner 2018 – Kalundborg Symbiosis
In today’s modern life a large amount of industrially produced products are taken for granted. At the same time, resources on our planet are limited. If we want to maintain a high material standard of living, the industrial processes need to be more resource efficient. One innovative way to do that is through industrial symbiosis.
Industrial symbiosis means collaboration between different actors, where the waste or energy from one actor becomes a resource for another. In that way resources are recycled and energy saved together with, of course, financial savings.
As a pioneer within the field, Kalundborg Symbiosis have shown the way for many other industrial clusters, inspiring businesses all around the world.
