Industrial symbiosis brings together companies from all business sectors with the aim of improving cross industry resource efficiency through the commercial trading of materials, energy and water and sharing assets, logistics and expertise. It engages traditionally separate industries and other organisations in a collective approach to competitive advantage involving physical exchange of materials, energy, water and/or by-products together with the shared use of assets, logistics and expertise. Peter Laybourn is the creator of NISP , which is currently the only Industrial Symbiosis programme anywhere in the world which is operating on a national basis. He was originally inspired to create NISP after hearing about by-product synergy programmes operating in the Gulf of Mexico.

This talk is part of the ELCF - Engineering for a Low Carbon Future (seminar series) series.
