Here is an 8:00 interview with Marian Chertow talking about Industrial Symbiosis
. The Yale professor looks at cooperation and material flows between companies as an emergent phenomenon (rather than planned). She brings on examples of Eco-Industrial parks in Denmark, Hawaii and India. Notions like self-organization and closed material loops are introduced. A short, simple and educative talk by one of the veterans of the Industrial Ecology field."You remember mutual symbiosis from middle school biology, where two animals – like the clown fish and the sea anemone – form a relationship that benefits both. The same life-cycle principles are now being applied to industrial systems."
