International Synergies NI Ltd is an industrial ecology consultancy that delivers resource efficiency and industrial symbiosis services both within the British Isles and internationally. We have conducted research to find sustainable solutions for a diverse range of wasted resources such as Composites, PVC windows, Carbon Black, Spent Mushroom Compost and Water Treatment Sludge. We are looking for opportunities to collaborate in other research projects that will find solutions for "resource challenges" such as wood ash, plasma dust, grit blast waste, etc. Challenges that face numbers of medium to large companies and which collectively provide circular economy opportunities.
