Hotspot: Belgian companies in the spotlight – Ghent

From 18 to 20 November, Belgium will host the Hotspot of the circular economy. This is an opportunity to get to know some of the leading companies in Ghent.  

Port of Ghent

Ghent, a hub of the circular economy. And rightly so! Throughout the city, companies specialize in the recovery and optimal use of resources. In this ecosystem, the port of Ghent is a hub in the city.

Discover Arcelor Mittal’s Steelanol plant and the many partners involved in CO2 collection and reuse with the upcoming launch of a Carbon Capture and Use Hub.

Get to know the knowledge centres that get the city moving thanks to their applied research: the Technology Park with the P3 and Magnel laboratories, the Resource Recovery Center Capture (CO2, plastic, water).

Authorities and companies also collaborate in European projects (PLASTICITY and URBCON). The New Docks project combines urban development with circular economy and business cases focused on new technologies .
