Session title: Looking at the Circular Economy through an “Old” Lens: Lessons from Industrial Symbiosis

In this talk, Dr. Howard-Grenville will consider the new attention being paid to materials efficiency and systems solutions under the banner of the circular economy. She will share insights from the research on industrial symbiosis, which is one approach that puts the circular economy into practice. When and how do ideas for material reuse and exchange come to fruition? What are the challenges to implementing such ideas? Dr. Howard-Grenville will share lessons learned from her studies, with co-authors, of the UK’s National Industrial Symbiosis Programme, the first national scale effort of its kind. She will also reflect on work in other settings and at other scales that puts the circular economy into practice.
