Joint management in La Torre park


From the beginning, the park has been designed to meet environmental and industrial ecology criteria. The park is formed by SMEs with high needs of management of waste generated and joint environmental management.

Some specific steps were done:

  • 1. Identifying possible synergies in and outside the park.
  • 2. Reuse of waste from some companies as raw material for others in and outside the park, evaluating at the same time economic, environmental and social impacts.
  • 3. Disseminate this park model to be replicated in Martorell and other municipalities.

Public authorities predict five years since its establishment to obtain the estimated results.
