Cooperation generates better results and provides opportunities for companies to increase production without consuming more energy, water and raw materials.
The idea behind the Symbiosis is for companies to utilize each other’s residual- and byproducts on a commercial basis.
One company’s byproduct is an important resource for other companies in the Symbiosis association. The result is more resource saving processes with a positive environmental impact. Furthermore, the Symbiosis-partners have an economic advantage because all agreements are based on solid business principles.
For more than three decades the symbiosis concept has been a natural part of the management principles in the enterprises of the Industrial Symbiosis in Kalundborg. The results are better economic and environmental performance. The enterprises of the Industrial Symbiosis are setting the scene for good environmental practice in Denmark and internationally.
