60 Activity 6 Identification of focal points

61 6. Identification of focal points In order to identify possible focal points there were conceived and submitted letters of presentation of the principles of industrial symbiosis. They were sent by mail or in person by the project team members, during their travel in the county for sending questionnaires for the identification and selection of potential focal points. Below there are images from April 2009 when the project team members visited potential focal points in Suceava: SC FACOS SA, ACET, SC MONDECO SRL, SC TERMICA SA, to present the project (financing, objectives, results) and co-opting representants of these companies in the PAG.

62 The activity of identifing potential focal points continued in the coming months, increasing the activity area and the number of organizations involved in the project. The project started with the approach of Suceava County, proposing to carry out its expansion in North-Eastern Region, respectively Botosani, Iasi, Neamt, Bacau, Vaslui. 6.

141 Date Location: Suceava City Hall. Număr participanţi: 30 persons (employees from SC Termica SA, ACET SA, representatives of construction companies and material transport, sanitation employees in companies, public officials in the municipality of Suceava, the project team). Objetives: organizing a formal framework to discuss the progress on the issue of synergies from the waste dumps Termica SA and newly identified synergies Mini-Workshop Suceava, 2010

142 MiniW-orkshop Suceava, 2010 The manifestation from Suceava was the fifth of its kind, organized within the "Ecoreg - Application of industrial ecosystems in regional development, funded by the European Union LIFE +. This event was a "mini-workshop" and assumed the participation of a limited number of guests, and discuss achieving synergies identified on a smaller field of activity. Basically, the main objective of the workshop was to mobilize better the firms in Suceava and the surrounding area, covering the construction activity (default pickling works, demolition, etc.), to transport and store waste liabilities arising from these activities, the deposits of slag and tailings from TERMICA SA in case of closure, with the 2011 period. At TERMICA SA the sole shareholder is Suceava CityHall.

143 Mini-Workshop Suceava, 2010 The possibility that TERMICA SA to achieve its target of closing time deposit liabilities using waste from demolition, was identified by the Ecoreg project team in spring 2009, soon after launching the Ecoreg project (February 2009, Suceava). From that moment, the project team followed the progress of identified synergies, the practical way they have developed and evolved. The purpose of organizing the workshop was to provide the framework within which participants can discuss and evaluate, together with team members, the fastest solutions, efficient and inexpensive to the problem faced by TERMICA and, meantime, construction firms, performing etching of asphalt, demolition, etc. - and do not have a solution for storage of material derived from this work.

144 Mini-Workshop Suceava, 2010 In this mini-workshop, ECOREG team put in contact the construction companies and Termica SA, with the purpose to use the construction materials be to close the Termica cells by 2011.

156 Among the potential synergies identified through Industrial Symbiosis Workshops, only certain processes / streams / wastes could be selected through a detailed analysis later in order to characterize and improve. Partnerships already concluded or which will be established based on symbiotic criteria will improve the effectiveness of each partner by the detection of waste markets, its principal or secondary products. ECOREG project encourages businesses to look beyond traditional markets for business opportunities, punctuate the economic benefits of this approach in order to stimulate economic development with environmental compliance, by reconsidering the "waste“ as "resource". 12. Identification and characterization of entities capable of being interconnected

157 CONCLUSIONS AND COMMENTS Establishing synergies is not the simple identification of the potential collaboration between two companies. This implies a lot of work: the managers of both companies involved in synergy identified must be visited and convinced with pencil on paper, that it is beneficial synergy, in a period of economic contraction. (Managers have other emergencies (unpaid salaries, debts, unable to attend the auctions because debt contracts outstanding, and unpaid work or deliveries, redundancy talks with unions - where, etc..). There are companies where the manager is also the accounting and driver and a lawyer and technologist, and all commodities and this is because he can not afford to pay specialists.

158 Synergies contribution at improving the economic situation of the companies must be significant and explained to the managers in detail, with intelligent arguments. (No manager will be concerned with the implementation of synergies, because in this way he will not pollute the environment or will reduce their consumption. With the environment pollution and the uneconomic consumed resources, managers could manage somehow until now. The manager must be convinced of the profit that he could get from a synergy.) CONCLUSIONS AND COMMENTS

159 Project is not limited to simple synergies, obvious, such as sawdust valorification or superior capitalization of construction debris landfill. (ECOREG team experts have expertise and have already provided solutions for superior recovery of waste and secondary resources (for ex., for the lamps burned for electrical equipment collected from plants for waste food and drinks which can be used in biogas For agricultural recovery or ash as additives for cement and concrete recipes or materials during cold chains, etc.). CONCLUSIONS AND COMMENTS

160 Identifying and designing complex synergies is requiring multiple materials tests, and waste characterization. (Are harmful, can be transported on public roads, what precautions must be taken, should be packaged as such could be neutralized, who could legally make such operations, the operators are trained and authorized to do so? The process requires testing of technologies (at ECOIND INCD), wastewater flows are necessary analysis, balance sheets, developing solutions). CONCLUSIONS AND COMMENTS

161 Regarding the resources that could be the object of a synergy, frequent offers in pilot county - Suceava are: wood and wood waste. Their sustainable use is not in combustion, even if they are renewable fuels, but in the recovery by generating added value. (For example, using waste wood for particle board or other purposes was identified at Egger Company from Radauti and Romanel Company from Vatra Dornei; unfortunately, these companies do not take timber products besides from forests managed sustainably (this is the firms policy, very healthy and for long term). CONCLUSIONS AND COMMENTS

162 Most wood waste manufacturers from the pilot county don`t have certificates supporting that the wood comes from forests managed sustainably, so their waste rot on the roadsides or, at best, are burned in the center. There were organized awareness raising for wood waste producers, so they know what can be done and so the waste they provided can become interesting for intensive companies like those mentioned). Experts have already prepared materials about the formalities that a wood waste producer would have to meet to certify the origin of the timber as the formalities which forest owners must comply.
