Waste-free economy in Russia

The Agency for Strategic Initiatives and the international consortium "St. Petersburg Cluster of Clean Technologies for the Urban Environment" signed an agreement on the development of industrial symbiosis in Russia.

At the forum of ASI and the Roscongress Foundation "Strong Ideas for a New Time" in the track "Green Economy", the project of the industrial symbiosis system as an effective tool for a waste-free economy was presented and entered the top 100 ideas of the strategic pool of ASI.

Industrial symbiosis involves the creation of a network of enterprises, in which the excess resources and waste of one manufacturer become a source of resources for another. Thus, an ecosystem is created that allows you to minimize the amount of waste, reduce environmental damage, as well as increase the efficiency of using available resources and reduce the costs of companies for waste processing. Such a system promotes the development of new businesses, forms new financial models and increases the competitiveness of individual enterprises, as well as the region or the country as a whole.

"We are committed to long-term and effective cooperation aimed at developing and implementing the methodology, business models, principles and approaches to the implementation of industrial symbiosis in the Russian Federation", said Nikolai Pitirimov, project leader and Chairman of the Board of the international consortium "St. Petersburg Cluster of Clean Technologies for the Urban Environment".
