Sicily - CIRCTER

Each case study within the CIRCTER project looks into an initiative that have been implemented to move towards a circular economy and with that tries to identify how circular economy works in real conditions and how regional factors can unlock the circular economy potential and contribute to territorial development. They looked into the Industrial Symbiosis Platform implemented in Sicily. The platform provides the information necessary to launch industrial symbiosis at the local level. This is done by supporting cost benefit analyses for selected potential matches of production inputs and outputs, processes and companies. The key success factor was the emergence of new business models, related to costs reductions for companies.
