Industrial Symbiosis - competitive edge from material efficiency
Resource efficient industry paves the way to progress
Resource efficiency will be the corner stone of competitiveness in all industries. Materials and energy need to be saved, recycled and reused to a much greater extent than they are today. We are looking forward to cost efficiency, new competitive edge and cleaner production.
VTT is hosting together with Sitra (Finnish Innovation Fund) a webinar on
industrial material efficiency. In the current economic turmoil it is
increasingly important for the industry to wake up and see the potential in a
symbiotic approach to material use. In particular, the webinar hosts
discussion on the re-processing of waste and embedded valuables to viable raw
materials for industry and the related economic and technological hurdles.
During the webinar, global and national companies and research organisations will give their views and experiences on this highly topical theme.

The webinar is free of charge. You need only to register to attend and follow the programme on your own screen. Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone else who may be interested in attending.
Let’s develop a better world!
We warmly welcome you to participate in the webinar!
