Roadmap towards a climate neutral industry Netherlands

SDR partners in an overview. Click to increase the picture

A roadmap was developed to ensure a climate neutral industry. International companies in the Netherlands and Belgium will collaborate in order to achieve the Paris targets of 80 to 95% CO2 reduction by 2050.

Therefore, eleven multinationals signed the Smart Delta Resources (SDR) partnership.

They 11 will develop business cases for the exchange of residual and material flows and through industrial transition. The focus of the partnership is reducing CO2 emissions and creating a circular economy, without losing sight of the original objectives.

The measures are included in the ‘Roadmap towards a climate neutral industry in the Delta region’, written by CE Delft.

Recyclable Rubber saves billions

Recyclable Rubber Is Possible

This Rubber House is named for its use of recycled rubber conveyor belts screwed onto the exterior of the home to serve as roof and cladding material.

PhD Laurens Polgar has created recyclable rubber.

Until now, rubber was only reusable as low grade product, for example used as pegs or paving stones.

By using a different system, Polgar has made rubber that is completely recyclable to new rubber, while maintaining all its properties.

Polgar won with his invention the Benelux finals of the prestigious Falling Walls Lab and is allowed to participate in the European final in Berlin. Read More

The West of the Netherlands produces annually over 200,000 tons of plant residues.

The remains of tomatoes and peppers together account for 170,000 tons.

At this moment, these residual materials now are composted.

But residual materials also have potential as a new raw material, if the chemical industries are interested. Read More
