Ghent

Ghent is a diverse and dynamic region, a young spirit in a historic region. As a port city, there is traditionally a rich waste management and recycling industry. Next to that, the city is characterized by a large number of SME’s and thus waste owners. Strong connections with knowledge institutions and universities make Ghent a talent hub, pioneering in new logistics, separation and recycling technologies.

Our focus

Ghent is on its way to becoming a continental hub for cleantech innovation. Our initially small cluster has grown into a network of pioneering cleantech players active in the fields of materials, energy, water and mobility. We’re constantly looking to fill knowledge gaps in our cleantech ecosystem and contribute to the industry as a whole, all the while striving toward our goal of making Ghent carbon neutral by 2050.
The PlastiCity project fits exactly into this ambition, by connection all actors of the (circular) plastic value chain with the purpose of developing new business cases and attracting new investments to our region. Collaboration and innovation are of true importance and strong drivers.
