Conceptual Model for Effective Implementation of Industrial Symbiosis: A Case Study of Mab-Ta-Phut Industrial Estate
This paper illustrates effective factors as well as a model for effective implementation of industrial symbiosis (IS) in Mab-Ta-
Phut Industrial Estate that was used (MTBIE) as a case study. The study was carried out using questionnaires, in-depth
interview, and site survey both factories in MTBIE and waste processor plants in Saraburi Province. Information from the study
indicates that policy (on zero discharge, zero waste to landfill and willingness to adjust process), initiator, information (on waste
generation), and financial mechanisms are effective factors influencing IS implementation, while technology and public
participation are not as effective for the case of factories in the industrial estate. Therefore, a model for effective
implementation of industrial symbiosis in industrial estate is proposed and presented in this paper.
