About Biopark Terneuzen
Established in February 2007, Biopark Terneuzen is a ‘Smart Link’ initiative that represents new thinking in the creation of agro-industrial sustainability. Building on the economic and knowledge transfer advantages obtained through the co-location of associated businesses, Biopark Terneuzen raises the platform to a higher level. Based on smart linking, it promotes and facilitates the exploitation of key synergies between its partner companies. Specifically the potential to exchange and utilise each other’s by-products and waste streams as feedstock or utility supplements for their own processes. This contributes to their productivity, to the conservation of non-renewable resources and the reduction of environmental burden. The growing list of Biopark Terneuzen’s industrial members includes: Yara Sluiskil, Nedalco, Cargill, EcoService Europe, Heros, ESV Group and Rosendaal Energy.
