International Synergies Northern Ireland (ISNI) are pleased to host our first in-person Resource Matching Workshop and networking session since the start of Covid-19.
This FREE event, in partnership with Invest NI, will be held in the Great Hall of Queen's University Belfast on Wednesday 25th May 2022 with a keynote speech from Prof. John Barry. Registration will be from 9.30 with the Resource Matching session from 10-11.30, and networking afterwards until 12.
These sessions allow NI businesses to present their "haves" and "wants" in resources - i.e what waste materials they have which are currently sent to landfill, and/or what materials they could make use of which others may be discarding.
Resources can be anything from cardboard, wood pallets, plastics, through to food and garden waste or training opportunities on offer.
ISNI practitioners will help to see if any matches can be made during the workshop, and also follow up with each company afterwards to discuss any potential matches from our extensive resource matching database.
This process, called industrial symbiosis, reduces waste going to landfill, boosting a company's carbon credentials, supporting the Northern Ireland green economy, and providing cost savings for all involved.
This event is free but pre-registration is required. Refreshments will be served.
Organised by the Centre for Sustainability, Equality and Climate Action (SECA).
