The Zuiderzeehaven is suitable for businesses up to environmental category 5.2. That means that companies active in the recycling industry are very welcome.

The scarcity of resources is becoming an increasingly urgent global problem. That means that recycling of used materials and construction- and demolition waste is essential to reduce the use of raw materials. It is also beneficial for the environment. Namely, recycling requires less energy than the production of new materials from raw materials.

Professional companies recycle used metals, construction and demolition waste in an environmentally friendly manner while taking the working-area into account. This means that attention is paid to the appearance of the location and that the noise of the equipment used remains within limits.
