Radical improvements in sustainability are achievable in industrial parks through industrial symbiosis and alignment in resource management. This consists of an optimal inflow and reuse of resources, energy and water in a synergetic and circular way. VITO evaluates the valorization of salt and metal containing process and side streams for reuse in (bio)processes and metal recovery respectively .
