The Industrial Symbiosis service is delivered by International Synergies NI Ltd on behalf of Invest NI. The service allows businesses to let their waste be used to the benefit of another business, therefore becoming a development opportunity rather than a problem. Practitioners work with businesses of all sizes and from all sectors providing advice, support and guidance on resource efficiency, legislation and waste management.
Watch a case study and see how The Jungle NI and Haffey Sports Grounds have successfully used the service.
