This paper considers the possibility to develop cleaner energy production with a perspective on regional material and energy flow management. The co-production method of district and industrial heat/steam and electricity (of heat and power, CHP) using renewable or waste fuels is viewed as a physical anchor tenant function for locally based industrial recycling networks. Arguably, this production method may be used to enhance the integration of producers as well as end-consumers into a local recycling network of matter and energy.
