Two sustainable investors in Antwerp-Bruges
In the Port of Antwerp-Bruges, the drive for the change to a climate-neutral society is focused on Next Gen District. The commitment of two new concessionaires, Plug and Ekopak, is a milestone for this cluster in the heart of the Antwerp site which relies on the principles of circular economy.
Nasdaq-listed Plug's green hydrogen production plant plans to produce 12,500 t of liquid and gaseous green hydrogen per year for the European market. The Euronext Brussels listed Ekopak, a Tielt-based water recycling company, will install a progressive water plant at the site, named the Waterkracht project, in a joint-venture with Antwerp-based Water-Link and the Flemish investment company PMV.
This company will convert the wastewater from the inhabitants of Antwerp. At full capacity, the plant will produce up to 3,000 cbm/h of sustainable cooling and process water so that minimum 20 billion litres of wastewater can be reused on an annual basis. (sh)
