Industrial heritage reflects the industrial civilization and industrial development process of the city in different periods, and its research and protection are conducive to the sustainable development of the city context. The Walloon Region in Belgium is one of the leading regions of industrial development in Western Europe, and Northeast China is the leading region of industrial development in China. The horizontal comparison of industrial heritage protection between the two regions is helpful to provide a reference for industrial heritage protection and urban regeneration of the two regions. It is found that the industrial heritages in both places are large in quantity and rich in types. The imbalance index of Walloon Region and Northeast China is 0.5001 and 0.6129. The closer the number is to 1, the more imbalance the distribution is. The distribution density of industrial heritages in Walloon Region is higher than that in Northeast China, and the types of industrial heritages in Northeast China are more than those in Walloon Region. The utilization rate of industrial heritage in the Walloon Region area is higher than that in Northeast China, and the main way of renewal is industrial tourism. The protection of industrial heritage in Northeast China is later than that in the Walloon Region, but it has the characteristics of sufficient stamina and rapid development. Strengthening the relationship between Europe and China in the protection of industrial heritage can provide reflection for the protection in Europe and experience for the protection in China.
