Sustainability is our biggest challenge yet

Sustainable growth, in the context of good stewardship of the environment and its resources, is one of the biggest ongoing challenges facing politicians and (industrial) leaders. Zeeland Seaports has identified a route that provides a uniquely innovative solution.


Biopark Terneuzen represents a new way of thinking in the creation of agro-industrial sustainability. Under the 'Smart Link' heading, Biopark Terneuzen promotes and facilitates the exploitation of key synergies between businesses located in the same geographic area. Specifically, it helps to maximise the potential of the exchange and use of each other's by-products and waste products, which then become feedstock, energy or utility supplements for their own production processes.



"The answer to a global challenge begins with a local solution"

Hans van der Hart, CEO Zeeland Seaports

Heros Ecopark Terneuzen

Director of Heros, Arie de Bode, is enthusiastic about the Biopark concept: 'Heros is an enthusiastic participant in Biopark Terneuzen. At its 45 ha site, opportunities have been created to actually realise initiatives which put flesh on the bones of the basic idea behind Biopark Terneuzen, whereby businesses use each other's residual flows as raw material. For example, the Biodiesel plant of Goes on Green (250,000 tonnes), the Biomass Power Plant of Lijnco Green Energy (10 MW) and the Heros Water Purification facility are interconnected and the Bio2E Biomass Power Plant (5 MW) will shortly be added. In addition, metals are recovered from various waste streams and the residual products are used again in building materials. Initiatives are being elaborated to connect businesses beyond the Heros Ecopark too.'
