The research study was done to an analyze and assess Harare industrial sites setup and practices, with the view to develop possible industrial symbiosis connections. This was achieved by carrying out a case study and developing a simple EIP framework prototype model. The approach that was used included developing a methodology for identifying and quantifying potential environmental and economic impacts of the EIP, collected data from existing industries on current eco-related activities and developed a prototype using the information gathered. A virtual eco industrial park model was developed with Msasa as the central part of the park having cement, chemical and coal power station acting as the anchors of the park. The overall estimated environmental impact of the final industrial park model was 15-25% decrease of waste deposited in landfills on implementation.
