These are the words of Raimo Van der Linden (REWIN), responsible for the business development of the Moerdijk Pyrolysis testing ground. Various parties have joined forces in this project (see the full list in the box).
‘We have the raw material suppliers on board, the providers of the technology – companies that have developed pyrolysis technology, end customers – and the companies that buy pyrolysis products, and knowledge and research institutions. Half of the investment in the project is provided by private parties, while the rest comes from the European Regional Development Fund within the framework of the Operational Programme South Netherlands ERDF 2014-2020. The project also receives financial support through a contribution from the government and co-financing from the Province of North Brabant,’ according to Van der Linden.
