Symbiosis Project

Matchmaking for industrial residual flows

SYMBIOSE aims to obtain all it can from Flemish waste substances and residual flows (heat emissions, infrastructure, technology, reserve parts, etc). The ‘waste’ of one company might be a valuable raw material for another. SYMBIOSE brings these potential partners together.

At the present time, SYMBIOSE’s database contains:

  • approximately 475 potential synergies that have been studied by companies, some of which have reached the end phase;
  • approximately 235 organisations;
  • over 1,400 resources (15% of which are offered or sought technologies).
  • An interesting fact: the economic added value per realised synergy amounts to around €85,000 a year.
