New life for old materials
Discarded cars, railway carriages and dismantled ships are turned into scrap metal, which is then further processed into consumer products. Old paper is recycled into new newspapers as well. We strive to place businesses together in intelligent clusters within the port area, so that they can easily exchange waste flows and energy. It is even possible to capture a company's CO2 emissions and reuse the gas before it ever reaches the atmosphere. CO2 is the same carbon dioxide that gives fizzy drinks their carbonation, for instance. Greenhouse horticulture also embraces a supply of CO2, as it promotes optimum growth in greenhouse plants.
Examples of recycled products include scrap metal, paper, CO, CO2, plastics and biomass.
