Qubator Industrial Ecology

Applied industrial ecology links theories of sustainability with actual practice.

This improves the performance of organisations and minimises harm to the environment.

Qubator has over 25 years experience applying business strategies that combine these two objectives.

The strategies of applied industrial ecology are relevant to many industries, including: manufacturing, oil and minerals extraction, agriculture, food processing, commercial fishing, aquaculture and forestry.

Industrial symbiosis is one such strategy, capable of achieving immediate, tangible economic and environmental benefits. It is tailored to achieve arrangements that make use of degraded resources and waste, thereby reducing the costs of disposal, the requirement for new materials and mitigating environmental harm.
