Industrial ecology study in the territory of HAROPA – France.
HAROPA (Economic Interest Group including Ports of Havre, Rouen, Paris)
Objectives and outcomes
Grouping of major French sea ports of Le Havre, Rouen and Paris into an Economic Interest Group (EIG): HAROPA
The missions of HAROPA: enhancing the effectiveness of the main strategic port missions, conducting collective actions along the fluvial axis (Seine River), and developing a platform for experience sharing and best practices on various economic sectors and topics of interest.
Industrial ecology identified as a priority strategy to revitalize the industrial fabric of the Seine Axis, and support its transition toward a new development model, incorporating the major challenges of sustainable development.
Studying the feasibility of a transversal industrial ecology approach, federating industrial and port sites across the Seine Axis.
Considering the increased use of the river as a leverage for the development of next-generation logistics and a catalyst to boost intercompany trade flows
Initiating a dynamic between industries and project developers in various port sites to implement large-scale synergies.
Phase 1: Industrial ecology feasibility study at the scale of the Seine Axis – International experience benchmarking – Territorial diagnosis across the Seine Axis – Evaluation of industrial ecology potential for the Seine Axis territory
Phase 2: Implementation of a Strategy for industrial ecology development across the Seine Axis – Governance approach – Action plan for implementation
