Abstract:Implementing industrial symbiosis networks is seen as one of the ways to work towards a circular economy. Traditionally, there are two ways for industrial symbiosis networks to emerge, by planning or by self-organisation. For both of these types of industrial symbiosis networks, a model based on game-theory is given. A cooperative game model is given for planned industrial symbiosis networks as are conditions for finding stable coalitions and a method for dividing the benefits from the cooperation. An algorithm is proposed to find these stable coalitions, which are the industrial symbiosis networks. For self-organised industrial symbiosis networks, a model is proposed based on coalitional bargaining. A non-cooperative game is used for this model and an algorithm is proposed to find the best strategies for each of the companies. Finally, a hypothetical case study about the exchange of waste heat is performed to test the applicability of the planned industrial symbiosis model. In this case study also there is some attention given to the influence of the different operational aspects on the stable coalitions.
