NextGen District

From start-up to scale-up, from industrial change leader to newcomer, NextGen District offers space tailored to your needs. This multimodal site, located close to the largest integrated chemical cluster in Europe is the new hub for circular economics.

Innovation zones

Based on the development potential of the site, the development plan provides for three different zones, with their own specifications.

  • Zone I. NextGen Demo (± 2,2 ha)
  • Zone II. NextGen Park (6 x ±1 ha)
  • Zone III. NextGen Lots (5 x ±5 ha)

 

 

NextGen Demo provides, among other things, the space to give start-ups the opportunity to test innovative projects within the framework of circular energy or process activities. By providing a location and the necessary facilities, the scale disadvantages typically experienced by start-ups can be partially overcome.

 

NextGen Park allows scale-ups or smaller companies to carry out their projects on a larger scale.
 
NextGen Lots mainly offers opportunities for industry leaders who are still looking for extra space and will have the same scope as other sites within the port area.

Integration industrial and chemical cluster

NextGen District is located in an industrial environment and close to the largest integrated petrochemical cluster in Europe. This enables interaction with existing companies and suppliers. This cluster strengthening effect offers both new and existing companies a competitive advantage.
