Industrial Symbiosis research at TU Delft - The next step in the contribution of the engineering sciences to the field of Industrial Ecology

Gijsbert Korevaar

Delft University of Technology Gijsbert Korevaar (M) is assistant professor on Industrial Symbiosis at Delft University of Technology, he also holds a guest position at Leiden University at the Institute of Environmental Science. His research mainly focusses on sustainable industrial clusters, industrial ecology, design of technological systems and sustainability evaluation. He is affiliated with the department on Energy and Industry, part of the Faculty on Technology, Policy, and Management.He studied Chemical Engineering at TUDelft and also obtained his PhD degree at the same university, the PhD research was on the Design of Sustainable Chemical Processes and Products. After his PhD research, he continued as researcher in the field of Industrial Ecology and was Director of Education for the joint master programme on Industrial Ecology (cooperation of Leiden University and Delft University of Technology between 2004 and 2012. In 2010, he was appointed assistant professor, first on sustainable chemical process engineering, since 2013 on industrial symbiosis. From his managerial role and research topics, he has an extensive network with industrial partners and abroad insight into sustainability. He is the author of more than 30 articles and book chapters, related to design andanalysis of various sustainable technological systems, including energy production and fuel production from biomass.


Industrial Symbiosis is one of the domains within the scientific field of Industrial Ecology. It provides insights on how to integrate industrial operations of distinct companies and other surrounding activities for a better... [ view full abstract ]
