What is nisp l.jpg

What is NISP?

  • National programme: launched in July 2005

  • FREE resource efficiency support

  • NISP Scotland funded by Scottish Government

  • Creating sustainable procurement and consumption patterns that reduce dependency on virgin resources

  • Use IS to reduce costs and additional business

  • Waste or spare resource becomes a saleable by-product or resource input for another company

‘Cradle to Grave’

Traditional linear supply chain

‘Wastes’ end up in landfill


Symbiosis networks l.jpg

Symbiosis Networks

Build networks, find Synergies

Between company support


Identify synergy opportunities l.jpg

Identify Synergy Opportunities

What resources are being underused? Need to know :

  • Location

  • Quantities

  • Specifications, EWC classification

  • Timing (project, batch, or continuous)

  • Restrictions (commercial, regulatory, technical, etc)

    Information gathered to identify synergy opportunities :

  • From direct contact, visits, or referrals

  • From ‘Synergy Workshops’ and other NISP events

Overall priorities for 2008 10 l.jpg

Overall Priorities for 2008-10

  • Not just highnn tonnage materials

  • Increased focus on ‘difficult’ materials

  • Priority sectors for NISP Scotland 2008-10

    • Food/Drink : Whisky & Fish

    • Oil, Gas, & Chemicals

    • Construction & Infrastructure Projects

  • Sectors reflect Scotland key industries

  • Avoid overlap, building links with Envirowise & WRAP

Priority Industry

Priority Sectors : Materials


Opportunity zero waste l.jpg

Opportunity : Zero Waste

  • Increasing number of companies adopting ‘Zero Waste’ as corporate policy including Wisemans, FMC, Diageo, Michelin.

  • Zero Waste = nothing to landfill

  • Larger companies are creating demand for a ‘Zero Waste’ solution. Some waste management companies responding…

  • Opportunity to promote alternative technologies such as AD, IVC, MBT

  • NISP Scotland is assisting our member companies to deliver their ‘Zero Waste’ targets.

No more landfill?


Summary l.jpg

Summary

  • Industrial Symbiosis theory & practice

  • Commercial & Environmental Benefits

  • Priorities for 2008-10 :

    • sectors & materials reflect Scotland drivers

    • use innovation to tackle ‘difficult’ materials

    • early engagement with major projects

    • collaboration with delivery partners
