Future- and climate proof building is for the northern parts of the Netherlands a neccesary development. It also offers many opportunities for other regions. The knowledge that is being accumulated in the north, is a tremendous export product. That is one of the outcomes of the raw material stream analysis of the Northern Netherlands, that was presented on the biggest Circular Economy Congres ever held in the Northern Netherlands in Oosterwolde on October the 5th. One of the working sites that could be visited on this day was Zernike Campus Groningen.
The congress was an initiative of the Association Circular Friesland, with support of the provinces Drenthe, Groningen and Friesland. Over 400 representatives from different sectors immersed themselves in the circular economy.
