"Industrial Symbiosis and the Circular Economy." - Sally-Anne Käsner
The need to increase the efficiency of resource use can be closely linked to another important concept, namely the Circular Economy. The Circular Economy refers to an industrial economy that is restorative by intention; aims to rely on renewable energy; minimises, tracks, and ideally eliminates the use of toxic chemicals; and eradicates waste through careful design.
The presentation will outline Industrial Symbiosis and the Circular Economy as approaches to move to a more cyclical economy from the present linear economy, using examples of how these could be achieved.
