Abstract

The transformation of industry towards improved sustainability results from a strategic complex setting of factors and through a transformation process. However, such process requires methodologies and tools that support and facilitate the communication and cooperation of different players and their interactions. Hybrid modelling approaches have gained prominence exceeding limitations of traditional methodologies and tools with respect to complexity arisen of industrial sustainability strategies. This paper proposes a hybrid modelling approach based on Agent Based and System Dynamics supporting the analysis and redesign of industrial areas based on sustainable strategy with industrial symbiosis. The results of this work suggest that the hybrid modelling approach can provide useful information about the effectiveness of sustainable issues. Additionally, the model can be applied as a generic framework to different economic sectors including manufacturing, energy system and agriculture.
