Enhanced energy resource efficiency and performance in process industry operations via onsite cross-sectorial symbiosis

Out of the community created by SPIRE covering industrial and research actors throughout Europe, EPOS brings together 6 global process industries from 6 key relevant sectors: steel, cement, minerals, chemicals, bio-based/life science products and engineering. With the aim of reinforcing competitiveness of the EU industry, it is the ambition of the EPOS partners to gain cross-sectorial knowledge and investigate cluster opportunities using an innovative Industrial Symbiosis (IS) platform to be developed and validated during the project.

Quantis will help integrate footprinting issues in the developed Industrial Symbiosis tool and report on the sustainability gains, in terms of environmental benefits for the process industries and society in general.
