GroenCollect is a new company which focusses on valorising organic materials from the city and harbour. This consists of collecting and sorting waste by people with distace to the current labor market and seeking the highest value for the products. The sister company Stadsgas is set up to process the lowest quality waste streams into biogas for local companies.
The result is a local waste processing plant which is able to feed the crossover between clean tech and makers industry. Examples are companies which make coloring agents, organic leather of feed for insects. The addition of Stadsgas to the GroenCollect initiative ensures a stable business case where a social enterprise meets circular economy.
