In a material symbiosis, the residue of one enterprise is used as raw material in another. This reduces costs on both waste management and procurement of raw materials – and minimizes the use of virgin resources.
In a water symbiosis, enterprises can reuse or recycle each other’s water resources and utilize secondary water source in close collaboration and hereby achieve significant savings on water consumption and operating costs while at the same time reducing the environmental impact.
Enterprises generate significant amounts of energy in production, which can be advantageously utilized by other enterprises instead of going to waste. In an energy symbiosis, enterprises can utilize each other’s excess energy, which save energy consumption and reduce CO2 emissions. Excess energy flows can be utilized for various purposes, such as steam for the process industry, heating and hot water.
Public-private partnership Solutions
The Danish waste competencies are characterized by the special relationship between public and private actors in the waste sector, which has been developed over the last four decades. “The Danish Waste Model” has ensured that the municipalities in Greater Copenhagen have gained an in-depth knowledge of the quantities and different types of waste streams.
