The FISSAC project – Fostering Fissac HIndustrial Symbiosis for a Sustainable Resource Intensive Industry across the extended Construction Value Chain – involves stakeholders at all levels of the construction and demolition value chain to develop a methodology, and software platform to facilitate information exchange, that can support industrial symbiosis networks and replicate pilot schemes at local and regional levels.

Project co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme, 2015 - 2020.


The project has entered its final year, so there are plenty of ongoing activities to achieve the expected results. Currently, the consortium is working on real scale demonstrations to test some of the products developed through symbiosis processes at laboratory and pilot scale, such as concrete pavement, autoclaved aerated concrete blocks, precast concrete pavers, New Jersey barriers, porcelain tiles and Wood Plastic Composites.

The non-technical barriers and social acceptance are in the focus of the Living Labs contributing to analyse some of the key factors needed to proper implement symbiosis processes.

On 25 & 26 February, the developing FISSAC IT platform was presented at the World Resource Forum 2019, to showcase the ongoing challenges. The Platform is characterised by two main areas: a life cycle approach to the flows of a potential symbiosis, and a GIS-based functionality with the creation of a market place that helps users identify symbiotic industries in a given region.
