The mission “Biomass Valorisation & Circular Economy Western Cape South Africa mission” is jointly organised by The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) in cooperation with The Netherlands African Business Council (NABC), The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (RWS) and Green Cape from South Africa. The mission aims to link Dutch companies to opportunities in South Africa’s nascent Waste Economy based on the insights emerging from Green Cape’s “Waste Economy Market Intelligence Report 2017” . The mission program includes B2B meetings and matchmaking with South African companies within this sector, field visits to South African waste management facilities and masterclasses.


The trade mission is specifically aiming for companies and stakeholders:

- that offer knowledge, (technical) expertise, systems and processes and technology in the circular economy, circular waste with a focus on construction and demolition waste, plastics and e-waste.
- that are in biomass valorisation (residues and waste from the agro- and processing sector and evasive species).
- other companies with an interest in these sectors.
