Global Environmental Outlook
(UNEP 1997)
“ While many may attribute the current
degradation of the world’s resources to
poverty and burgeoning population
growth, the inefficient use of resources,
high levels of consumption, waste
generation, and industrial pollution are
equally to blame.”

Industrial Ecology Framework
Some Operational Definitions
• Sustainable development – is development that
meets the needs of the present without compromising the
ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
(Brandland Commission, UN)
• Industrial ecology – is a systems approach to
efficient resource use and protection of the environment, with
focus not only on devising improved methods of waste
treatment and disposal but also on the best opportunities to
reduce waste throughout the total material cycle from virgin
materials to finished products to end of product life. (US
environmental Protection Agency, 2000)
Some Operational Definitions
• Eco-industrial development -- is industrial
ecology in practice, based on the pursuit of the ‘three Es” of
sustainable development: economy, environment, and equity.
It seeks to develop symbiotic networks among and between
businesses, community and the public sector. (M. Schlarb,
Work and Environment Initiative, Cornell U)
• Eco-industrial parks (EIP) – a community of
business that cooperate with each other and with the local
community to efficiently share resources (information,
materials, water, energy, infrastructure and natural habitat),
leading to economic gains, gains in environmental quality, and
equitable enhancement of human resources for the business
and local community. (President’s Council on Sustainable
Development, USA, 1996)
Some Operational Definitions
• By-product exchange (BPX) – a set of
companies seeking to utilize each other’s byproducts (energy, water, and materials) rather than
disposing them as waste (Lowe, 2000)
• Eco-industrial network (EIN)- a set of
companies collaborating to improve their
environmental , social, and economic performance
in a region. (Lowe, 2000)
Eco-Industrial Network
Classification of Eco-Industrial
Activities (Research Triangle Institute)
• Mixed-use developments involving industrial, commercial and
residential activity
• A site with environmentally-friendly infrastructure, construction,
or design
• An industrial park designed around a single environmental
theme, e.g. solar energy
• A collection of companies involved in green manufacturing and
• A collection of environmental technology companies
• A recycling business cluster containing firms involved in
resource recovery and remanufacturing of waste materials
• A single by-product exchange pattern or network of exchanges.
Classification of Ecosites
(Research Triangle Institute)
• Sites designed around an environmental theme (e.g. green
• A collection of environmental technology companies
• A Collection of companies involved in green manufacturing
and production
• Sites engaged in resource recovery (e.g. waste recycling
clusters) waste materials
• Sites engaged in material exchanges (Eco-industrial parks).

Academic Initiatives & Linkages
Projects of most SUCs are more of the
environmental-themed activities with
some limited connected and
collaboration with government and the
MSU-IIT “EID” Initiatives
• Bamboocraft Technology Resource
• Nature Farming
• Solid Waste Management Program

• Aims to integrate major concerns on the utilization
of bamboo – from research and development,
propagation, technology transfer, production and
• R & D – supported by the Iligan City Government
• Propagation – supported by Iligan City & DENR
• Production & commercialization – with loan from
DOST & Congressional support (CDF)

-- Demonstration facility
-- Continuing research (e.g., use of corn bran
instead of rice bran)

MSU-IIT’s Solid Waste Mgt
Program: New Planned Features
A material recovery facility will be established where segregated
wastes are put on stock.
Tie-up with a religious congregation for the sale of recyclables.
Incorporation of a paper shredding facility to handle the paper
wastes of he Institute.
Network with the religious congregation who will operate a paper
recycling facility, with training to be provided by the Institute.
Linking with the Department of Chemical Technology for the
operation of a composting facility that suits Nature Farming.
Link with the farmers for the sale and use of natural fertilizer,
with assistance from the congregation for the continuous
monitoring and motivation of farmer users.

Lessons Learned & Experiences
• On Capacity Building
• On Micro-financing Needs
• On Policy Advocacy
• On Academe’s Role
Some Recommendations
•Involve all the stakeholders in any multi-sectoral economic
activity to ensure a common understanding of expected business
results and environmental gains. Involvement will start during the
planning process, continue until the program implementation and
•Develop project proposals that will interlink different agencies in
the promotion of eco-industrial activities. Some agencies like
DENR, DA, Haribon Foundation and the LGUs are more than
willing to help in this effort considering that environment is their
key concern. What they are waiting for are concrete, doable
projects that they can identify with.
• The academe should be a constant initiator in the preparation of
project feasibility studies for potential eco-industrial activities,
given the perceived local and international markets for selected
Some Recommendations
•Encourage an early development of entrepreneurial spirit
among the college students while they are still in their junior
or earlier years. The effort of Union Cement Corporation,
which is focused on introducing these students to a weeklong business management game (a computer-assisted
course in basic business economics and management) is
worth replicating in the future. The course, to be conducted
by volunteer-managers, is free for selected students.
•Involve the business chamber of the locality for an
effective implementation of a collaborative effort along
enterprise formation. Availment of the Barangay Micro
Business Enterprises (BMBE) incentives is facilitated by the
business chambers.
