Pathway for decarbonization

The main objective of CORALIS is to create pathways for the decarbonization of resource and energy intensive sector value chains through the implementation of viable industrial symbiosis approaches combining new business and management strategies with innovative technology-based enablers. This whole approach will be demonstrated in three real industrial areas covering different sectors, geographical dimensions and resources, improving the knowledge basis and laying the foundations for exploiting the potential of Industrial Symbiosis in EU process industry.

CORALIS’ overall approach will be demonstrated in 3 Lighthouse demonstrators. Besides, 3 follower industrial parks will learn from the project results to replicate them by implementing additional Industrial Symbiosis initiatives after the project’s end. WA3RM is project partner in CORALIS, responsible for one of the three lighthouses: The Frövi Demo, located in Lindesberg Municipality, in Sweden. The pilot will demonstrate recycling of low-grade waste heat and will explore the reutilization of CO2 in industrial symbiosis for a greenhouse application. The pilot will also test the upgrade of CO2-source stream to the quality required by potential uses other than the greenhouse (algae cultivation, power to X technologies, etc) with the objective of scaling-up the installed facilities and find new alternatives for the symbiotic use of captured CO2. Finally, a valorization analysis of sludge coming from the pulp and paper mill is considered to support future IS initiatives in the industrial area.
