Call For Papers

The Conference aims to address the significant issue of utilization of the generated industrial waste through the promotion of effective technologies and safe practices. The Conference focuses mainly on industrial symbiosis, the sharing of services, utilities,
and by-product resources among industries in order to add value, reduce costs and improve the environmental performance of industries. Industrial Symbiosis is considered as one of the solutions towards more efficient processing and resource and
energy efficient systems for the process industry. It aims to stimulate the interest of scientists, industries and industry associations and inform them about creating economic and environmental value through interfirm collaboration. It hopes to contribute to moving towards a near-zero waste society, which not only has an environmental rationale, but it increasingly becomes a factor of competitiveness. The Conference will provide an opportunity to bring together scientists & professionals from industries, industrial associations (food, textile, metal, etc), government departments, Municipalities, private institutions, research & education institutions, being a forum for the exchange of the most recent ideas, techniques & experiences in all areas of effective industrial waste management and utilization. A special workshop (in Greek with translation in English) will focus on the use of the eSYMBIOSIS platform on 19th June 2014.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

 Industrial Waste Management
 Industrial Ecology
 Industrial Symbiosis as a Business Model
 Eco-Industrial Parks
 Policy and Legislation for Industrial Symbiosis
 Cleaner Production Technologies & Approaches
 Environmental Economics in Industry
 Decision Making Tools
 Resource Efficiency in Process Industries
 Reuse of Materials into Products

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of maximum 2 pages in English, including figures and tables (as MS Word file). The abstracts can be submitted electronically via email no later than 25th April 2014 to

Abstracts will be accepted based on quality, originality and relevance to the conference themes. All accepted papers will be published as the conference proceedings (CD ROM format), while the best papers after evaluation will be published in a special Issue of WASTE AND BIOMASS VALORIZATION in collaboration with the Associate Editor of the journal, Prof. Gerasimos Lyberatos.(

We look forward to receiving your paper and we hope to see you actively taking part in the SYMBIOSIS 2014 Conference. For more details please visit:
