Industrial Symbiosis For Promoting The Green Economy In Romania







In the efforts to develop a sustainable, low carbon, resource efficient and competitive- ultimately the green economy- in the European Union, the industrial symbiosis is an important conceptual and practical approach with essential contribution. Latest developments in eco-innovation in Romania are those dedicated to implementing the circular economy, as will be analyzed and highlighted in the paper. The main objective of the research is the analysis of the regional eco-innovation potential to play a decisive and major role in the transition to a green economy in Romania, by implementing industrial symbiosis as a high form of circular economy. The methodology is based on previous research outcomes of conceptual and empirical analysis in the areas of sustainable development, resource efficiency, green economy, sustainable forest management, ecoinnovation parks as well as on a case study. The case study will present the main features, including the environmental and economic drivers and benefits of the industrial symbiosis by adding value by recycling wooden waste from logging within the ECOREG pilot eco-industrial park of Suceava County. The conclusions and policy recommendations are that planning, implementing and development of industrial ecosystems is needed in Romania, in view of sustainable regional economic development and a green growth.
