By-Product Synergy Northwest Network

Mission: To identify and implement by-product synergies where the waste product of one becomes the feed stock for another, resulting in measurable business and environmental benefits.


"Turning Waste into Profit"

By‐Product Synergy Northwest helps Washington companies increase the amount of their output that is actually profitable while reducing environmental impacts. Through a process developed by the U.S. Business Council for Sustainable Development, Northwest companies will work together to identify and implement “synergies” that allow one company’s waste to become another company’s resource.
