Conference – Industrial symbiosis

WIN WIN The Gothenburg Sustainability Award in 2018 draws attention to the theme of industrial symbiosis. The award winner of the year, Kalundborg Symbiosis from Denmark, receive their award on the evening of October 24th. In connection with their stay in Gothenburg, we organize a two-day conference in the venue “Dome of Visions” at Lindholmen in Gothenburg, focusing on industrial symbiosis. On Tuesday we are focusing primarily on the construction sector and circular material flows, what are we facing for challenges and how can business and municipalities find a way forward? On Wednesday we discuss opportunities for cooperation and the need for a West Swedish platform for industrial symbiosis. We know that there is a national collaboration administered by Linköping University. We also know that Sotenäs municipality actively works through the Sotenäs symbiosis center. However, there is no cooperation within the whole Region of Västra Götaland, something we now want to establish.

When: 23 – 24 October 2018
