Circular inspiration: Strasbourg’s industrial ecology
The Strasbourg port area has more than 320 established companies with about 10,000 jobs; it is the leading area of economic activity in Alsace. Since 2013, the Europmétropole of Strasbourg has been engaged in a project to optimise the consumption of resources and the production of industrial waste.

Catherine Trautmann, president of the Port of Strasbourg, vice president of the Eurométropole de Strasbourg, said: “The Port of Strasbourg is also a port dedicated more and more to industrial ecology since it’s also a laboratory of innovation and partnership with and between companies. As it is a factor of attractiveness for new companies, it is also a factor of sustainability for the existing companies.”
