In 2010 a unique collaboration between research, utilities, companies, municipalities, regional port authorities and private actors emerged. This collaboration contributed to the development of symbioses between smaller companies in the area ultimately leading to benefits for the wider industrial area. These benefits are both economic as well as environmental.
In the European Green Deal industrial symbiosis is highlighted as the best available technology for achieving European climate goals of cleaner industrial production by 2030. The company supplying surplus resources to a symbiosis typically saves waste handling costs. While the company receiving these resources can be offset with the reduced costs or by avoiding the purchasing of these new materials. At Port of Aalborg, we stand ready to put your company on the growing map of Danish symbioses so that you can be a part of the circular economy.
