  • Book's title: Carbon Footprint and the Industrial Life Cycle: From Urban Planning to Recycling (Green Energy and Technology).
  • Pages: 485-500.
  • ISBN: 978-3319549835.
  • DOI: 10.1007/978-3-319-54984-2_21.
  • Summary: Instead of energy and ecological relocation, SYMBIONT City detects energy opportunities and possible urban folds to achieve thermodynamic benefits. While some agendas have already fostered the concept of symbiotic planning, neither current infrastructure systems nor urban regulatory frameworks allow for their actual implementation. SYMBIONT is a set of local laboratories designed to enable new synergies between waste, energy and information flows in existing urban waste transfer facilities. It aims to raise the level of urban resilience in cities by acting in existing urban facilities and adjacent urban environments through the implementation of local laboratories capable of monitoring, processing and reconnecting existing energy, energy and information, while regaining the notion of infrastructure as a public. Space through social engagement actions. These space facilities have strategic value as urban nodal locations, with potential phase-shifting capacity, for neighborhood waste and energy flows. These micro-infrastructure interventions will assist in the aforementioned transition, allowing a change from "green" to "green" infrastructures, with the capacity to provide social, ecological and economic benefits to urban communities, such as reducing waste disposal, local power generation and storage. , improving air quality, reducing energy costs and new opportunities for social cohesion and engagement.
  • Keywords: Waste management, municipal solid waste management, land area ratio, urban metabolism, waste management facility.
  • Abstract: Instead of the energy and ecological relocation, SYMBIONT City detects energy opportunities and possible urban folding to achieve thermodynamic benefits. Although some agendas have already fostered the concept of symbiotic planning, neither current infrastructural systems nor urban regulatory frameworks allow for its real implementation. SYMBIONT is a set of local laboratories designed to enable new synergies between waste, energy and information flows on existing urban waste transfer facilities. It pretends to raise the level of urban resilience in cities by acting on existing urban facilities and adjacent urban setting through the implementation of local laboratories able to monitor, process, and reconnect existing waste, energy and information flows while recovering the notion of infrastructure as public space through social engagement actions. These spatial facilities have a strategic value as nodal urban locations—with potential phase-change capacity—for neighborhood waste and energy flows. These micro-infrastructural interventions will help in the aforementioned transition allowing for a turn from "grey" towards "green" infrastructures, with capacity to provide social, ecological and economic benefits to urban communities such as reduction of waste disposal, local energy generation and storage, improvement of air quality, reduction of energy costs and new opportunities to social cohesion and engagement.
  • Key words: Waste management, municial solid waste management, floor area ratio, urban metabolism, waste management facility.
