GreenCape Introduces WISP: Western Cape Industrial Symbiosis Programme
  Jan 19, 2014     GreenCape, business

We are working to help businesses to explore new opportunities, implement innovative technologies, and unlock the potential of under-utilised resource (such as surplus material, wood, packaging, plastic, cardboard, food waste, factory by-products, underutilized assets, spare capacity, logistics, etc). WISP enables synergies to happen by filling the gaps that its members, especially SMEs, could experience due to the lack of time or dedicated expertise needed to identify and implement resource, waste and energy efficient practices. All information captured is strictly confidential.

We will be running FREE innovation workshops this year, allowing members to meet and discuss their resources with delegates from other companies, industries, research and development agencies, local universities and recycling companies. The WISP team will facilitate an interactive session at these workshops, identify potential synergies and personally assist companies with the process of realising these opportunities. Through WISP, companies can achieve substantial cost savings, generate sales from new markets and contribute towards creating a sustainable economy.
