Fissac small

The Process Industry Conference, the SPIRE mid-term policy event, took place on 19 September 2017. SPIRE brings together cement, ceramics, chemicals, engineering, minerals and ores, non-ferrous metals, steel and water sectors, several being world-leading sectors operating from Europe. This event gathered relevant stakeholders for the European Process Industry.

ACR+ has taken part of the SPIRE projects' day where FISSAC - Fostering Industrial Symbiosis for a Sustainable Resource-intensive Industry across the extended Construction Value Chain - was presented. The main highlights during the ACR+’s presentation was the importance of a key element of success of an Industrial Symbiosis project; the interactions between the highly predominant technical aspect of industrial symbiosis and non-technical aspects (including social engagement and acceptance). Indeed, beyond the technical feasibility of the exchanges, social elements also play a crucial role in the development of Industrial Symbiosis networks.
