Experience

The City of Ghent, Belgium’s 2nd largest city, accomodating the 2nd most important Belgian seaport, is boosting sustainability as one of its core values in its mission statement. Next to its common tasks as local authority, Ghent is promoting actively its research centres and spearhead industries. In particular, the recently launched “Cleantech Cluster Ghent”, with a strong focus on the use of waste streams as raw materials, is of major relevance for this project.
