Abstract

Wasted materials represent valuable resources that we can no longer afford to discard. The concept of ‘zero waste’ is a challenge to old ways of thinking, calling for waste to be viewed as a potential resource with value to be realised, rather than as a problem to be dealt with, usually by burial in landfill sites or incineration without energy recovery. Examples of industrial symbiosis – the theoretical rationale and methods for sharing information and resources across different industries – are starting to be found worldwide. In this themed issue, we focus on technological issues. A short overview of the themes that are discussed in detail in the individual papers is given below. The key concepts of the Zerowin vision (outlined in the briefing by den Boer et al. (2014)) formed the foundation of the demonstration case studies presented in this journal.
