The NextGen District is the future hotspot for the circular economy in the Port of Antwerp, located on the former 88-hectare site of General Motors. Port of Antwerp made the conscious choice to dedicate this large zone near Europe’s largest chemical cluster to the circular economy. There, innovative companies that play a role in the circular process and manufacturing industry will give a new life to end-of-life products.
In addition, they will investigate new circular carbon solutions and carry out experiments involving renewable energy. To attract as many local and international circularity pioneers as possible, a market survey was organized in October 2020 and June 2021.
