SDR companies in Steel, Energy, Chemical and Food Industry work together to create industrial connections and develop interesting business cases. The industrial symbiosis between the various sectors in the region has economic optimization as a starting point, but in time it also contributes to making their processes more sustainable. This collaboration contributes to the national targets for sustainable economic development, reduction of greenhouse gases such as CO₂ and reduction of the fossil footprint. The platform is actively supported by the Province of Zeeland and Zeeland Seaports. NV Economische Impuls Zeeland facilitates the platform.
