Renasci, revolutionary in recycling
Today we still landfill or incinerate most of our waste. This can and must change!
In addition to the many ecological and economic motivations, this is also mandated by European directives.
Renasci is proud to introduce Smart Chain Processing, a unique technology developed through the collaboration of biochemists, engineers, biomass specialists, and investors. Their revolutionary process fully converts waste into energy and valuable raw materials that can be used by other industries.
Through the integrated energy recovery systems, the facility is energy self-sufficient and generates no residues or waste water. A big leap forward to a circular economy!
Renasci is currently finalizing the building of their Flagship Smart Chain Processing facility in Ostend.
In order to secure their national and international growth ambitions we are currently recruiting an International Sourcing Expert.
