Implementing an industrial
symbiosis step-by-step


The implementation and the success of an industrial symbiosis rest on the participation and collaboration of stakeholders.

Based on research and various projects of the CTTÉI, the Guide for implementing industrial symbioses , published in 2013, puts forth a simple and clear approach for initiating exchanges of residual recyclable materials, water and energy between businesses.

This guide was designed to help organisations wishing to establish the foundations of an industrial symbiosis, as well as local development agents, waste management professionals, elected officials, waste recoverers, haulers and recyclers, business associations, etc.
