Port of Antwerp is looking for starters who want to test sustainable chemistry in the NextGen District testing ground | Antwerp
The port of Antwerp aims to be climate neutral by 2050. NextGen District is located on the former sites of car manufacturer Opel, between Noorderlaan and Churchilldok. Good for 88 hectares. Companies in the circular process and manufacturing industry will give products whose life cycles a second or even third life. In addition, they also want to capture and reuse CO2, and hydrogen with the energy received.
Now there is also NextGen Demo. This 2-hectare site, divided into plots of 200 to 2,000 m², is reserved for new technologies and circular demo projects that have outgrown the lab, but have yet to be tested on a larger scale.
“NextGen is a top location for logistics,” says Port of Antwerp. “By making the peripheral infrastructure available, we have additional assets to surprise candidates. Based on their needs, we will work together to arrive at a desired offer.”
In concrete terms, Port of Antwerp is looking for start-ups and scale-ups, spin-offs and pilot projects that are related to sustainable and innovative chemistry and energy. The focus is on technology four within: waste and other renewable energy sources to new molecules of raw materials, CO2 capture and reuse and bio-based technologies.
Candidates can submit their project proposals until February 28, 2022. More info on NextGen Demo.
