The NCPC-SA will be one of the technical partners of the annual Africa Utility Week in Cape Town next week, 15 to 17 May 2018. The Centre, represented on the advisory board of the event, believes the conference and supporting exhibition will once again be an excellent platform for discussing and sharing on issues around energy and water. 
African Utility Week takes place at the International Convention Centre in Cape Town. This event has been running for 18 consecutive years and has established itself as the largest power and water utilities exhibition and conference on the African continent. 

 

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.
