BalticBiomass4Value: Webinar on discovering good practice examples of industrial symbiosis and bio-based business models on 26 May 2021

The European Green Deal seeks to develop a circular and sustainable economy. But how can this be implemented? The webinar held on 26 May 2021 from 10:00 AM to 12:00PM (EEST) aims to discuss and find answers to this complex question. Organised by

two Interreg Baltic Sea Region projects, the “BIS – Baltic Industrial Symbiosis” project and the “BalticBiomass4Value” project, of which FNR is a project partner, recent findings on the implementation of industrial symbiosis and bio-based business models will be presented. The webinar is targeted at industrial symbiosis and bio-based business stakeholders, i.e. representatives of public authorities, academia and the business sector and are kindly invited.

The aim of this event is to engage stakeholders from a triple helix constellation to facilitate the development of the industrial symbiosis mindset. This will be achieved through storytelling experiences and networking enabling the exchange of knowledge and experience across borders. Participants will be introduced with:

  • Tools that will help new actors in developing industrial symbiosis (key policy framework, role of SMEs and municipalities, mapping facilitator’s toolbox);
  • Good practice examples of industrial symbiosis in the Nordic countries (examples of industrial symbiosis in Kalundborg, Paper Province, Sotenäs);
  • Bio-based business models for the replacement of fossil fuels with bio-based fuels, as well as for novel uses of bio-based materials for non-energy purposes;
  • Good practice examples of bio-based business models presented and explained by practitioners, i.e. business companies itself.

Notably, following this webinar, the participants will be invited to direct one to one dialogues presenting the opportunity to take advantage from free consultancy support assisting industrial symbiosis stakeholders to speed up their transition efforts.

The webinar is free of charge, but pre-registration is required. Language of the event is English.

The event is being organised in collaboration with the Nordic Council of Ministers Offices in the Baltic States.
