Sentimental time at Yale, as Tom Graedel is now integrity

  • Tom gave hint in 1996, meeting on eco-industrial parks

Have the gone to lots of industrial symbiosis meetings

  • Scholarship has grown
  • World recognizes need to manage resources

Some numbers in industrial symbiosis (from the chapter in the volume)

  • Industrial symbiosis thinks about practice side
  • 1989:  “Strategies for Manufacturing” in Scientific American
  • Powerful synergy for industrial symbiosis, output from one part becomes input for next
  • 1989 is also the year knew about Kalundborg, Denmark, as they named it industrial symbiosis
  • A few years, had a meeting in Kalundborg:  if Christine had known about Scientific American article, might have named different

20 years since peer-reviewed articles have been published ratled to industrial symbiosis

  • 391 peer-reviewed articles 1995 to2014 in Web of Science

Kalundborg Symbiosis Status diagrams

  • 2012 added Inbicon and Pyroneer, two new power plants
  • Denmark doesn’t want to use coal, they’re increasing biomass

In article, events of highlights

  • 2014 South Africa
  • 2014 NISP-Canada launched
  • U.S. BCSD launches Austin Materials Marketplace

Research fields

  • Need engineering
  • Complex Adaptive Systems
  • Community ecology

New review article by Walls and Paquin, 2015, look at organizational and institutionalize side

  • Content analysis on key factors mentioned most frequently
  • Antecedents
  • Lubricants
  • Limiters
  • Consequences

286 articles featured countries in article

  • China has almost twice as many articles as any other country
  • 2004 was the first year that researchers from China published

Article categories:

  • Foundations
  • Performance
  • Mechanism
  • Modeling
  • Structure

Trends:  To 2004, most articles were conceptual, case study

  • 2007: Big step up
  • Case studies strongest in 2004
  • 90% of modelling articles after 2006

Practitioner input:
