Experiments in industrial ecology Kalundborg is a city of around 20,000 inhabitants located in a Danish fjord at about one hundred kilometers from Copenhagen. It is an important harbor for Northern Europe. It is often considered as a model by the academic world, and has become a major reference point in the implementation of industrial ecology. Industrial symbiosis began in 1961, when Statoil (then Esso) needed water for its oil refinery. The first pipelines linked the company to Lake Tisso. In 1972, Statoil began supplying excess gas from its production process to Gyproc (a company producing plasterboards).

Most of the value produced currently goes to large-retailers. 80 to taxes [BUT 12]. Agricultural producers and agro-food companies see only a small part of the added value. Moreover, economic power in food systems is held currently by large-retailers. Retail has imposed quasi-integration systems on factories and farmers to ensure the security of its supplies of food products, to ensure that consumer demand is met on time. Agricultural producers are often treated as the equivalent of second-rank subcontractors in the automobile industry [BAU 05] and are subjected to a large portion of the constraints having to do with this production mode, while earning little revenue in return.
