04 May 2023 – Eastern Cape Industrial Symbiosis Programme Official Launch

The National Cleaner Production Centre, South Africa (NCPC-SA) in partnership with the Eastern Cape Economic Development, Environmental Affairs & Tourism invites you to join the official Eastern Cape Industrial Symbiosis Programme (EC-ISP) launch.

The IS Programme is a free facilitation service that promotes the exchange of one company’s residual resources (material, energy, water, waste, assets, logistics, expertise, etc.) with another that can use them.

Currently, the programme is implemented in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo, Northern Cape, and the Free State.
