Are you Wasting Your Resources?
NISP is designed to help you make the most of your resources and prevent waste. NISP (National Industrial Symbiosis Programme) is a business opportunity programme that delivers bottom line, environmental and social benefits to its members and is the first industrial symbiosis initiative in the world to be launched on a national scale.
Operating across the UK, NISP is funded in Northern Ireland by Invest NI and therefore membership is free for all companies regardless of size, turnover or sector.
NISP works by identifying profitable links between its member companies so that previously unused or discarded resources such as materials, energy, water, assets, logistics and expertise from one are recovered, reprocessed and reused by others.
Manufacturing companies are a key focus of NISP as they present the greatest opportunities for resource efficiencies. Recent NISP successes include:
Ø Helping a plastics extrusion company source recycled PVC
Ø Finding a use for waste methanol in bio-diesel manufacture
Ø Identifying a composting outlet for food waste
Ø Finding a beneficial use for waste talc in soil remediation
