Consultancy Services

Our consultancy services ensure businesses improve profit, cut costs and reduce risks around material supply using industrial symbiosis methods and tools.  Our approach enables businesses to reduce spending on disposal, storage and transport and generate new revenue by transforming under-utilised or undervalued resources – including water, energy, materials and assets – into tradeable, commercial products.

Our consultants have extensive knowledge of industrial processes and manufacturing techniques, combined with an understanding of the latest processing technologies and innovations.  We can identify immediate, medium and long term business opportunities for companies; bringing together producers and users of waste resources with innovators, the research community and entrepreneurs and keeping resources in productive use for as long as possible.  Our services include:
