We hebben uitbreidingsplannen, maar gaan waarschijnlijk binnenkort al extra zuurkasten bijplaatsen in de gang.”
Bergen op Zoom, 18 December 2018 – Today, the new demo facility of the Green Chemistry Campus was officially opened. "An important milestone for the Campus and for the region", according to director Petra Koenders. "With this demo facility we enable companies to scale up their biobased innovations. Moreover, the building is one of the most sustainable demo areas in the Netherlands ".
An important milestone for the Green Chemistry Campus: the new demo facility that enables biobased entrepreneurs to scale up their innovations has been completed structurally.
