Reducing carbon dioxide emissions from industrial processes is one of the major challenges of climate change mitigation strategies. The by-products from major bulk material production processes could be used as secondary raw materials in order to substitute other energy- and emissions-intensive materials, hence reducing raw material consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This concept of the integration and utilisation of by-product and waste streams is referred to as “industrial symbiosis”. However, a global estimate of the potential for further industrial symbiosis and its contribution to GHG emission mitigation is yet missing. The talk will provide an overview of previous case studies of industrial symbiosis and their contribution to the questions identified in my FYR . Then, the methodology as well as the preliminary results of my research project will be presented.
