Title: Waste to Value: Incorporating Industrial Symbiosis for Sustainable Infrastructure

Sustainability through Symbiosis: Using industrial wastes as raw materials in various industrial processes

This P3 project is investigating a number of opportunities to use industrial wastes for raw materials and energy savings. Investigators are working with industries in Commerce City, CO to:

  1. Identify and exchange their wastes for re-use in other processes,
  2. Develop a new technology that can use particular waste streams as raw materials, and
  3. Use waste energy to fuel these re-use opportunities

Two of the opportunities being researched are:

  • Using higher concentrations of recycled fly ash in concrete mixes.
  • Using novel methods to purify spent engine oil to make a useful, new product.
