Scaling European resources with industrial symbiosis

SCALER’s vision is to increase the uptake of industrial symbiosis across Europe. The project will develop a set of best practices, tools and guidelines, helping businesses and industrial sites work together to ensure sustainable resource use. Through industrial symbiosis, European industrial companies will become more resource efficient and therefore more competitive.

Quantis will evaluate the potential benefits of synergies, taking into consideration key environmental indicators such as GHG emissions, non-renewable primary energy use, and fresh water consumption. Quantis will also provide database development, support on social Life Cycle Assessment, and knowledge and data management.
