Abstract: Waste is generated after many industrial production processes. If the wastes are not managed correctly, it pollutes the environment and damages it. Some industrial wastes can be used for another industry. They can carry the value of the material. They can interact with each other and evaluate the wastes they create. The purpose of this study is to develop an approach to help the development of an industrial symbiosis system in order to enlarage the scope and borders of industrial symbiosis which has being done mainly in local and limited scale. The approach is depended on estabishment of sectoral maps and overlaying the maps of sectors which have potential for symbiosis. Marble industry in Turkey was selected as the example data. Locations, capacities and waste quantities data of the marble producers were collected and located on the Turkey map. After mapping, the spatial analyses will help to determine the convenient regions where the symbiosis investments would be more economical and environmentally important. This study was a part of the research on large scale mapping and spatial analysis project that is being performed for industries in country-wide.
