NCPC-SA Industrial Symbiosis Case Study
16 April 2018
ZuluGal Retro, a Durban based social enterprise producing recycled and up-cycled wallets and other fashion accessories made by differently abled individuals and their caregivers, is on the verge of distributing their products globally following their participation in the National Cleaner Production Centre South Africa (NCPC-SA) Industrial Symbiosis (IS) Programme.
A resounding 203 potential synergies were identified between participating KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) companies at the industrial symbiosis business opportunity workshop that was hosted by the National Cleaner Production Centre South Africa (NCPC-SA) on Tuesday, 7 November 2017 in Durban. The day raised the awareness among KZN industry of how waste can be turned into a reusable resource by entering into mutually beneficial collaborative agreements.
Industry representatives from KwaZulu-Natal companies will attend an industrial symbiosis business opportunity workshop on Tuesday, 7 November 2017 in Durban. By employing an innovate reuse and recycling solution, the KwaZulu-Natal Industrial Symbiosis Programme (KISP) will match participants together for the sake of exchanging unused or residual resources of one company for the use of another, thereby diverting waste from landfills and reducing costs to companies.
