The aim of the FISSAC project is to develop a software model that supports Industrial Symbiosis (IS) management within the construction and demolition value chain. It is therefore of interest to review existing tools or databases that work in a similar manner in order to act as a reference point for learning, comparing and sharing experiences. One example of this is the ITeC’s construction elements database used by construction stakeholders in Catalonia. (more…)
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.
