Valorising biomass residues holds a major potential for South Africa in terms of waste inimisation, job creation and investment opportunities. In addition, it can create reliable access to secure, affordable and clean energy.
Six Dutch companies specialised in biomass valorisation, have teamed up to develop new business initiatives in South Africa using solid (woody) biomass. The companies have formed a public private partnership (PPP) with the Dutch government, Netherlands Enterprise Agency (government agency which operates under the auspices of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy) and the Embassy of the Netherlands in South Africa.
The cluster is seeking long-term collaborations with South African companies, municipalities and other organisations to create successful and viable business opportunities.
The Netherlands Embassy in South Africa invites you to a masterclass about the opportunities presented by the proposed collaborations, which includes information about an exciting investment in Coega Development Zone. This masterclass will be valuable for:
