  9. 9. Styria… RECYCLING BACKGROUND 2 austrian researchers wonder about Kalundborg (industrial symbiosis) and it’s possible implementation in Styria. 1996 Why?... Decreasing energy/raw materials reserves and waste disposal Starting point. 2 major enterprises Results. a complex network of exchanges among 50 facilities Industries. agriculture, food processing, plastics, fabrics, paper, energy, metal processing, wood, construction Situation. Plant managers weren’t aware of such network. It self-evolved Motivation. Revenues from by-products sales and landfill dosposal cost savings STYRIA… By-Product Recycling Network

  18. 18. Conclusions 1 Searching information on this subject (recycling networking) remains difficult if you are not an expert in the field. Important cases, as it seems to be, should be promoted with a bigger effort if a Network of Knowledge and Experience is one of the main objectives of institutions and individuals worldwide. 2 Industrial Ecology, and more specific, Industrial Symbiosis is not only related to companies that produce solutions and close material-energy loops while working together. Symbiosis involves citizens efforts and compromise when achieving sustainable states. 3 Interesting cases in Industrial Ecology show that not only from planned strategies is possible the evolution of recycling networks – symbiosis. Self-evolving approaches to ecology- economy as Styria Recycling Network, represents the confirmation of “natural” or “necessary” approaches to a new Cities Development. 4 Connecting living spaces, people and technological progress, requires action from government, industries, science and communities that stablish common priorities and develop synergy that should be evaluated.
