Gold Standard Award – Recognising 10 years of outstanding engagement 

 

The Industrial Symbiosis Service has facilitated over 450 synergies since 2007.  These synergies have found economic and sustainable solutions for underutilised or wasted industrial resources.

To mark their 10th anniversary they wanted to pay tribute to some of the people and organisations who, in their opinion, have demonstrated an exemplar commitment to Industrial Symbiosis.

Paul Rosato, our Warehouse Supervisor, attended the International Synergies conference in Titanic Belfast on Wednesday 31st May 2017 and picked up this beautiful award.

The award was made from reclaimed and discarded materials by David Keys.
