Flanders and The Netherlands have joined forces in Bio Base Europe, to build state of the art research and training facilities to speed up economic growth, innovation capacity and sustainable development in our society. The founding partners of Bio Base Europe are Ghent Bio Economy Valley and Biopark Terneuzen.

In Ghent, The Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant was established. It is a flexible and diversified pilot plant that operates at tonne scale. It is there to close the critical gap between the scientific feasibility and industrial application of new biotechnological processes.

The Bio Base Europe Training Centre in Terneuzen is a centre for education, network and exhibition that promotes the development of a sustainable biobased economy. It offers general and company-specific training and is closely attuned to market demand.



General Manager of Yara, Geert Raedemaecker: 'For years, Yara International and Yara Sluiskil in particular have been occupied with their ecological footprint. Improving energy efficiency and reducing emissions into the water, soil and air are on our daily agenda. Biopark Terneuzen has enabled Yara Sluiskil to implement significant improvements and the Biopark concept therefore enables Yara Sluiskil to fulfill its sustainability ambitions. With the CO2 from our ammonia production process and the low caloric heat in many of our production processes, we have two Smart Links for the greenhouses in the Biopark. Yara deliveres these links to WarmCO2 which distributes the flows to the vegetable growers. The concept is a perfect example of how, by joining forces with entrepreneurs beyond our gates, we can take bigger steps towards achieving sustainable growth.'
