35. Blue Gate Antwerp - When a blackfield turns into a sustainable business parc, the infinity of circularity becomes clear

Located along the river Scheldt, close to the city centre of Antwerp, lies Blue Gate Antwerp. On its highs, it was one of the main gateways to Europe for petrochemical products to the hinterland. But this petrochemical history came with a price, it resulted in a huge pollution.

Thanks to the integrated and integral approach of the public problem-owners and private investing partners, walking way off the well-used paths, this blackfield turns into a future proof businesspark within a feasible redevelopment project.

You’ll get the opportunity to question both acting partners and stakeholders who will, each from their own angle, give you an insight on their specific solution-path in the overall redevelopment process.
