Research Interests

Regulatory and policy frameworks for initiation of industrial symbiosis networks   

Katrien’s research explores how regulatory frameworks can support catalysation of the initiation of industrial symbiosis networks within the UK.

Industrial symbiosis is a description for the exchange of energy and material resources between several parties reusing or recycling waste streams into new products and/or lower grade input resources for secondary production processes. Its guiding principles underpin many of the ideas that are shaping efforts towards the ‘circular economy’. 

A theoretical regulatory framework, supportive of symbiotic networks and capable of overcoming some of the current existing barriers to their establishment, will be developed with reference to new, emergent regulatory theory and UK case experiences.
