Introduction: The French Riviera Chamber of Commerce (CCI Nice Côte d'Azur) defends the interests and supports the environmental and managerial transition of the more than 70,000 companies it represents. Since 2015, it has been working on industrial symbiosis issues and as such it has notably piloted an industrial symbiosis approach on the Bois de Grasse business park and the Saint Laurent du Var business park. The French Riviera Chamber of Commerce also piloted the regional experimental approach ACTIF () as well as the creation of a legal toolbox in order to support and massify inter-company synergies

Idea of the proposal:

The objective of this project idea is to create european industrial symbiosis networks to optimize the exchange of flows and synergies. To do this, several components are envisaged:

  • A legal component: developping innovative legal models in order to encourage and massify industrial symbiosis approaches and to allow transnational exchanges.
  • A technical component: unifing the industrial symbiosis approaches on the territories by transferring proven technical solutions and tools.
  • A practical component: deploying efficient industrial symbiosis approaches by relying on local industrial ecosystems

CCI Nice Cote d'Azur's contributions to the project

The CCI Nice Côte d'Azur offers more specifically to:

  • Contribute to a state of the art on the industrial symbiosis theme
  • Conduct study visits
  • Deploy and adapt the ACTIF tool in the pilot territories.
  • Pilot one or more industrial symbiosis demonstrators in the Alpes Maritimes region.

2 approaches are proposed in order to set up an efficient industrial symbiosis demonstrator:

  • A territorial approach: the CCI Nice Côte d'Azur will deploy the approach in a business park in the Alpes-Maritimes region and will bring together all the local stakeholders concerned.

  • A sectoral approach: the CCI will deploy the approach through the prism of local networks / an economic sector in the Alpes Maritimes region.

Target: 350 companies sensitized / 100 companies diagnosed

Expected partners:

  • Organisations established in the list of eligible territories
  • Organizations engaged in industrial symbiosis approaches in a territorial or sectoral logic (in particular energy, plastics, construction materials sectors).
  • Organisations wishing to develop innovative legal models to encourage and massify industrial symbiosis approaches from an international point of view
  • Organisations offering technical solutions able to unify the industrial symbiosis approaches in the territories concerned by the project
