Ghent is a real hub for the circular economy. And rightly so! Everywhere in the city, companies specialise in the recovery and optimal use of waste flows and materials.
Thank you very much for taking part in our ‘resource recovery’- tour of city and port during the Circular Economy Hotspot Belgium. We hope you had an inspiring day.
