CORALIS (Creation of new value chain Relations through novel Approaches facilitating Long-term Industrial Symbiosis) is a new initiative coordinated by CIRCE in Spain. It is a demonstration project for the generation of real experiences on the deployment of IS solutions and the overcoming of the barriers faced by these initiatives. Identification and deployment of enabling technologies is the main driver behind selecting and executing symbiotic relationships in the three industrial parks where the demonstrations will take place. As such, technological innovations are one of the main pillars of CORALIS.
However, it will be complemented by the managerial and economic perspective of IS, which will inform the industrial symbiosis readiness level and feed into the overall feasibility of the IS solution. IMA-Europe’s role in the project will consist of dissemination and event attendance support and reaching out to IMA-Europe member companies with two dedicated minerals events.
