Circular re-development in urban areas: Blue Gate Antwerp

Blue Gate Antwerp is delighted to welcome you on its site. 66ha of land is being made ready for a bright circular future. The soil-remediation of the first phase is finished and the construction of the first building will soon get started. Blue Gate Antwerp welcomes innovative cleantech, sustainable chemistry and smart logistics players on its development. The synergy between the enterprises is the ideal breeding soil for their own growth.

During this site-visit you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about:

  • the amazing history of this first European petroleum cluster turning into a circular industrial site
  • the soil-remediation specifics i.e. the challenge of a maximum soil-regeneration, the creation of a site specific contamination quick-test …
  • the heating network
  • BlueChem, the chemical incubator on site
  • the integration of an aquaponics farm on the roof of a warehouse on this development  

On the 27th of February 2019 we’ll first have a walk on the field, then we’ll drive you around the site in real safari style and finally we’ll offer you a lunch composed of ingredients originating from the aquaponics farm on the roof of the Abbatoir in Brussels.

We already look forward to welcome you at Blue Gate Antwerp!
