NISP gets the thumbs up from European Commission

A UK eco-innovation programme has been recognised as a prototype in its field, by the European Commission.

The National Industrial Symbiosis Programme (NISP) has been acknowledged by the European Commissions Environmental Technologies Action Programme (ETAP), made up of environmental policy makers from each of the European Unions Member States, as one of the big players in
Europe s eco-innovation projects.

At an ETAP committee in
Brussels , NISP directors could not contain their delight at accepting an invitation to present NISP to the committee.

Commercial manager Dr David-Huw Owen said: The presentation highlighted the aims, approach and significant success NISP has already enjoyed, while also demonstrating the value of close regional partnerships with organisations such as Advantage West Midlands.

Following the visit to
Brussels , we are continuing discussions with both the Commissions ETAP team and representatives from a number of Member States to explore the potential for replication of NISPs activity across Europe .

Since April 2005, NISP has attracted £66 million in private investment in reprocessing and recycling. NISP brings together companies from different industrial sectors to generate cost savings and sales through the commercial trading of by-products such as energy, water and waste materials.
