Industrial Symbiosis Haiku

The ultra modern National Gallery of Canada, far left, was designed to reflect the design of the Gothic Revival Parliamentary Library across the Rideau Canal from it, just to the left of the Peace Tower in the picture on the left.

Quantum computing, working with qubits, is different from (well really, much better than) binary digital computing which can only have two values, 0 and 1. Qubits can hold exponentially more information than bits. 

The enhanced capability of quantum computing will be handy for designing something as complex as industrial symbiosis, which is an association between two or more industrial facilities or companies in which the wastes or by-products (such as CO2) of one become the raw materials for another.
