Is your #trash someone else’s #treasure?
Read the full interview with Timo Makinen from NISP Canada to understand how the #waste your #business generate can be converted into a valuable input for another.
#SPARK2019 October 28-30, 2019 | Edmonton Convention Centre: Carbon Positive programming includes an interactive, circular economy-based match-making workshop designed and facilitated by the Canadian National Industrial Symbiosis Program (NISP® Canada). The NISP® concept has been successfully used in over 30 countries and has been piloted in Western Canada since 2017.
#NISP is about creating symbiotic relationships between businesses and promoting #circular #economy thinking. Ultimately, it’s an initiative that connects business operators and other organizations—like universities and colleges—that want to find higher value uses for their waste streams, ideally converting them into valuable resources. Compared to conventional resource usage approaches, #industrial#symbiosis is better for the #environment, supports job creation and retention, opens up new lines of business, and leads to less emissions and reduced landfill volumes.
