  1. 1. NATIONAL CLEANER PRODUCTION CENTRE SOUTH AFRICA Industrial Symbiosis Programme & Progress in South Africa An Introduction 14th Sept 2017 Henry Nuwarinda & Sarah O’Carroll Programme Team Leaders
  2. 2. • Introduction to industrial symbiosis o Definitions, examples and models • Industrial symbiosis in South Africa o History and motivations o WISP, GISP and KISP o Impact • Future of industrial symbiosis in South Africa Presentation Outline
  3. 3. In biology: ‘An interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association to the advantage of both’. Concise Oxford Dictionary, 8th Edition What is Industrial Symbiosis?
  4. 4. What is Industrial Symbiosis? (Cont.) Extended to industry: Industrial symbiosis is a resource efficiency approach where unused or residual resources of one company are used by another. Materials – wood, plastics, food waste, WEEE, metals. Expertise – ISO 9000, ISO 14000, OSHAS 18001, best practice. Capacity – under-utilised equipment, lab facilities. Logistics – transport, warehouse facilities, land. Water and Energy – waste heat, steam, borehole, process.
  5. 5. What is Industrial Symbiosis? (Cont.) LandfillRotten tomatoes Compost Fabric offcuts Underfelt for carpets Core principle: Industrial symbiosis aims to find reuse and recycling solutions for waste materials to divert waste from landfill, while at the same time creating real businesses benefits for members.
  6. 6. Industrial Symbiosis Advances Sustainability • Promotes development of circular systems within the industrial sector. • Uses the principles of the waste hierarchy. • Creates mutual economic, environmental and social benefits for companies involved. Economic benefits Increase profits. Increase sales. Reduce waste disposal costs. Create enterprise development opportunities. Reduce raw material costs. Environmental benefits Reduce CO2 emissions. Divert material from landfill. Reduce use of virgin resources. Reduce hazardous waste disposal. Social benefits Create jobs. Create opportunities for knowledge transfer and learning.
  7. 7. Two Models Exist Co-location Model Wider Network Model Companies do not have to be within the same location for resource exchanges to be viable. Two forms: (i) self-organised (ii) facilitated

  11. 11. GISP, KISP and WISP are free services that connect companies so that they can identify and realise the business opportunities enabled by using unused or residual resources (materials, energy, water, assets, logistics, expertise). Connecting industry – Creating opportunity South Africa’s Facilitated Industrial Symbiosis Programmes
  12. 12. South Africa’s Facilitated Industrial Symbiosis Programmes 1. Build an industrial symbiosis network. 2. Facilitate the exchange of information through Business Opportunity Workshops and one – one site visits. 3. Record and upload resources onto SYNERGieTM, an online resource management system. 4. Support the implementation of resource matches, facilitating negotiations and providing technical expertise. 5. Develop summary reports and case studies for implemented synergies. 6. Measuring the impact of Industrial Symbiosis.

  15. 15. Impact of SA’s IS Programmes 105,000 Tonnes of waste diverted R28 million Additional revenue R24 million Cost savings >150 Jobs created
  16. 16. Impact of SA’s IS Programmes For every R1 government invests in us we return R3 to our network in economic benefits. It costs us about R200 to divert a tonne of waste from landfill.
  17. 17. Future of Industrial Symbiosis in South Africa • Embedding industrial symbiosis in industry. • Expanding industrial symbiosis activities in South Africa and beyond. • Analysing the SYNERGieTM database to identify enterprise development opportunities. • Working with incubators (SAREBI and Innovation Hub) to develop new enterprises. Some key opportunities: ash, e-waste, paper sludge, contaminated sands.
