An online data management tool to implement industrial symbiosis projects towards a circular economy

Project description

Software for a circular economy

Europe's demand for water, food, energy, land and minerals continues to grow. Demands on the world's limited stock of resources has made it necessary for Europe to make more efficient use of both virgin materials and waste. The EU-funded Síner project will develop software that can manage and estimate resources (raw materials, waste, water and energy) and waste (wastewater, residual heat) data of the industries, in order to identify potential synergies between companies. It will gather data from different sources and process it via Big Data tools and algorithms that are capable of estimating the unavailable data. By improving understanding of the EU market, the project will make it possible to identify regional market variations in terms of purchase decision-makers, appropriate business models and pricing structure and to identify the most attractive markets.
