FISSAC will host its next webinar in on 31 May 2018. This webinar will focus on the interactions between the highly predominant technical aspect of industrial symbiosis and the non-technical aspects, including social engagement and acceptance. Typically, the social dimension of industrial symbiosis refers to the need for firms to interact more extensively than is required for normal business practice. Topics will include concrete examples.

About the Project
The FISSAC project involves stakeholders at all levels of the construction and demolition value chain to develop a methodology, and software platform to facilitate information exchange, that can support industrial symbiosis networks and replicate pilot schemes at local and regional levels.
The model will be based on three sustainability pillars:
- Environmental (with a life-cycle approach)
- Social (taking into consideration stakeholder engagement and impact on society).
Our ambition is that the model we create can be replicated in other regions and other value chain scenarios.
FISSAC aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of the processes, services, and products at different levels.
