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.
