The main objective of SYMSITES is to implement regional urban industrial symbiosis in four different European regions in social, economic and environmental aspects. The four EcoSites will use the same technologies for wastewater and waste treatment and for energy production and cycling, allowing a clean comparison of the impacts of the EcoSites. The four EcoSites will generate virtuous circles of energy, treated waste and wastewater flows between urban and industrial entities.
