  • Not just material flows – also energy, water, logistics, assets, experts, knowledge transfer All about business opportunity
  • Sustainabilty requires evolving industrial systems from linear to circular for more efficient use of resources
  • The NISP Programme has been involved in hundreds of different projects delivering financial and environmental benefits. The first of these was actually identified at the NISP North East Launch Event in 2005. Delegates from Terra Nitrogen attended the Workshop looking for an outlet for their waste Steam, Carbon Dioxide and ammonia produced from their fertiliser plant. At the workshop they met John Baarda, a Tomato grower and began discussing the idea of using their waste steam and carbon dioxide in a purpose built greenhouse for growing tomatoes. Using the waste heat and CO2 would provide an improved growing environment. After lengthy discussions the greenhouse was built and has gone on to become the UK’s largest greenhouse delivering 12 ½ thousand tonnes of carbon savings per year and reduced the number of food miles from tomatoes no longer being supplied from Spain and Portugal.

    3. 3. About International SynergiesInternational Synergies “International Synergies strives to lead the world in innovative industrial ecology solutions for a low carbon, sustainable economy.”• ISL has run the NISP programme in the UK for 8 years• ISL has worked closely with IFKA over the last 3 years on a Life+ project to implement an industrial Symbiosis programme in Hungary• It is because of this pioneering work that the EUR-IS project has been awarded to us
    4. 4. About IFKA(Public Foundation for the Development of Industry)• Has been active in the economic, research-development and innovational life of Hungary for more than twenty years.• Continuously working on environmental projects on topics which are important for the industry and help to protect the environment and point towards sustainable development.• Founded in 1990 (environment focus ~10 years)• 2009: Industrial symbiosis / theory and practice/• REPROWIS & NISP 2010 In cooperation with ISL

    6. 6. What is ‘Industrial Symbiosis’? Modified from Chertow, Yale 2000 “Industrial symbiosis engages traditionally separate industries and other organisations in a collective approach to competitive advantage involving physical exchanges of materials, energy, water and/or by products together with collaboration on the shared use of assets, logistics, experts and knowledge transfer.”

Fruitful CollaborationTerra Nitrogen: Industry produces derivatives of nitrogen and Partnership methanol.• Waste:12,500 tonnes of CO2 •Elimination of CO2 emissions released to atmosphere, hot •Construction of a greenhouse steam and ammonia. capable of producing 300,000 John Baarda: Tomato producer tomatoes per year • Additional production capacity •Investment of £15M limited due to high costs of energy •Creation of 65 new jobs •Recovery of heat from steam
    13. 13. John Pointon & Sons Ltd Transformation • Animal renderer processing carcass waste and sending by- products to landfill • NISP helped them to send by- products to the cement industry as an alternative fuel • Then moved to anaerobic digestion and grid connection • Have changed from being a ‘dirty company’ to being a clean energy company “Long term culture change needs long term business engagement”
    14. 14.
