Frequently asked questions about concessions
Co-siting and exchanging product streams
Various chemical companies are open to exchanging certain raw materials or by-product streams. The customers or partner companies then set up at the same site. For example, BASF Antwerp shares its site with partners including PVC producer Inovyn and Evides industrial water. While Ineos Oxide shares its site with chemical companies including Kuraray, Nippon Shokubai, Momentive and Arkema.
The by-product stream of one company often serves as a raw material for another. For example, Indaver and SLECO supply steam from their waste-to-energy plant on the Left Bank to companies in the port.
Are you interested in co-siting yourself, or do you have a brilliant idea for upgrading by-products into raw materials for another company? Then contact one of our Key Account Managers Industry or Liquid Bulk. They know the players in the port area and would be delighted to look at the different possibilities with you.
In your search for a site or building at the port, you can also contact several real estate companies that offer buildings to rent or buy, both within and outside the port area.
