Launching Event in Oinofita on 20th March 2012 On Tuesday 20th of March, the Prefect of the Region of Sterea Ellada Mr. Klearchos Pergantas was present at Oinofita and participated in the event being organized by the Region and the National Technical University of Athens in the context of promoting new actions for the improvement of the wide region close to Asopos river and particularly the development of “Industrial Symbiosis” in Viotia Region in the framework of Project LIFE+ eSYMBIOSIS.
About the project Industrial Symbiosis engages traditionally separate industries in a collective approach to resource efficiency, involving the physical exchange of materials, energy, water, and/or by-products. ‘The keys to Industrial Symbiosis are collaboration and the synergistic possibilities offered by geographic proximity’ (Chertow, 2000).

e-SYMBIOSIS is a LIFE+ Environmental Policy and Governance Project co-funded by the European Commission. Its implementation started on 1st October 2010 and was completed in June 2014. The project was implemented in Greece and United Kingdom under the coordination of the National Technical University of Athens and the cooperation of the associated beneficiaries Region of Sterea Ellada, University of Surrey, AVCO Systems ltd, CLMS Hellas, Envireco Consulting SA and Paul Innes Consulting Ltd.

The project aims to develop a knowledge-based service that will promote, demonstrate and advance Industrial Symbiosis (IS) in Europe. Industrial Symbiosis (IS) is an innovative approach and environmental practice that brings together companies from all business sectors with the aim of improving cross industry resource efficiency through the commercial trading of materials, energy and water and sharing assets, logistics and expertise.
