Renewable Energy & Circular Economy

We are moving from a linear to a circular economy. The goal is to minimise waste and pollution by reducing, recycling and reusing. Resources are reclaimed to create new monetary and sustainable value. This demands for new approaches and models for collaboration to close the loop of production, consumption and distribution. Explore and experience what the Netherlands has to offer here!
