Circular Synergies: Challenges for Portugal Report

In Portugal, 1 million tons of waste are currently disposed of annually (2015). Although this figure may be an underestimate, if it was managed through industrial symbiosis, an environmental benefit of an estimated reduction of around 5.5 million tons of domestic raw material extraction might be achieved.

Peter Laybourn, Chief Executive of International Synergies Ltd is a global lead on industrial symbiosis and his industry expertise and knowledge transfer has been captured on pages 34 & 35 of the following Circular Synergies report.
