Abstract [en]

The role of industrial symbiosis is analyzed in the application process of renewable energy in the Östergötland region in Sweden.

The care for nature has a long history in Sweden. The related forestry industry’s tradition of integrated diversification for efficient resource use fits in that mode. Uncovering and mimicking existing symbioses seems to fit better in the Swedish business concept than intended developments to eco-industrial parks.

It is concluded that the strong link between the industry, government and academia with respect to innovative approaches for applying renewable energy and industrial symbiosis plays a strong role at the macro level in the Östergötland community.
