- other companies with an interest in these sectors.

The mission “Biomass Valorisation & Circular Economy Western Cape South Africa” is jointly organised by The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) in cooperation with Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (RWS) and Sanec.. The mission aims to link Dutch companies to opportunities in South Africa’s nascent Waste Economy.
