How can European industrial parks reduce their CO2 emissions, waste, and material consumption? The project
R-ACES aims to create ecoregions where heat and cold are exchanged and smart energy management systems are incorporated. The vision of the workshop is to support industrial parks in becoming ecoregions to be able to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by at least 10%. This has been achieved in Belgium, Denmark and Italy by exchanging surplus energy and making extensive use of renewables.
