Objective: Ensure that all material and energy resources in the Øra area are utilized as efficiently as possible and that the business, as a whole, in the Øra area is nearly climate-neutral through increased interaction between the companies and businesses in the area (industrial symbiosis).

The research project will result in concrete innovation in private partner companies, as well as innovation in interaction between companies and between companies, public companies and public administration. A dynamic and clear resource database and resource map collected for the entire Øra area will be developed and implemented in a web based. Industrial development projects will be carried out that can contribute to technological solutions that make it possible to reduce resource loss, share surplus resources and increase environmental and resource efficiency in the area as a whole. The innovation work will take place in networks between the companies that produce and need resources that can be shared, and R&D environments that can contribute to the development of new solutions. New methods and models for business development will be developed through cooperation and interaction between companies and between companies and public enterprises in order to promote industrial symbiosis and circular economy in practice.

The project is supported by RFF Oslofjord.
