The following are some of the basic strategies in developing an eco-industrial estate:

1. Energy system should be designed to maximize energy efficiency, optimize use of renewables

2. Site-wide design of materials flows and waste management to emphasize pollution prevention, especially reduction of toxic substances

3. Effective eco-industrial park management through maintaining the right mix of companies needed to best use by-products as companies change

4. Park construction rehabilitation that incorporates materials with minimal toxicity and environmental impacts

5. Training for eco-industrial park personnel
