2B Connect - Meer biodiversiteit op bedrijventerreinen

interreg euflag web
De cluster B³ (waaronder Campine) is één van de 23 partners in het project 2B Connect
die de komende drie jaar in de grensstreek België-Nederland werken aan meer biodiversiteit op bedrijventerreinen.
Bij Campine zullen we het habitatgebied rond Campine verder valoriseren door aanleg van kikkerpoelen
en het bouwen van een vleermuizenverblijf (in samenwerking met Vito Hoogstraten).
Verder worden er buffers voorzien om de scheiding naar het natuurgebied te verbeteren
en komt er een corridor voor het grotere wild tussen de noord- en zuidkant van het bedrijf.
Steeds meer bedrijven willen hun terreinen natuurgericht inrichten en beheren.
De groene infrastructuur die zo ontstaat speelt een belangrijke rol als grensoverschrijdende natuurverbinding.
Bovendien zorgt beplanting van onder meer bomen en struiken voor betere luchtzuivering, minder geluidsoverlast
en een aangename omgeving voor buitenactiviteiten.
Vaak ontbreekt bij bedrijven echter de nodige kennis en ondersteuning om meer natuurgericht te werken.
Van januari 2016 tot december 2018 helpt 2B Connect minstens 70 bedrijven hun terrein groener in te richten.
Via een opleiding reikt 2B Connect instrumenten aan, zoals een biodiversiteitsscan, die bedrijven helpen biodiversiteit
in te passen in de bedrijfsvoering.
Het project ontwikkelt ook een rekenapplicatie die bedrijven toont waarom investeren in groene infrastructuur loont.
In Vlaanderen en Nederland lopen al verschillende projecten om bedrijventerreinen biodiverser in te richten.
Dit Europese project vormt daarop een zeer belangrijke aanvulling.
2B Connect ontvangt via Interreg Vlaanderen-Nederland 3.012.583 euro om de komende drie jaar bedrijven en biodiversiteit
dichter bij elkaar te brengen.
Interreg Vlaanderen-Nederland is een Europees fonds voor regionale ontwikkeling in het grensgebied België-Nederland.



Campine Recycling NV nam kennis van het persbericht van de Europese Commissie en hun “mededeling van bezwaarpunten” inzake een onderzoek bij 5 loodrecyclagebedrijven, die verdacht worden van kartelvorming bij aankoop van loodzuurbatterijen. Dit vermoeden geeft geen oordeel over het definitieve besluit van het onderzoek dat in september 2012 werd opgestart.

In dit kader heeft Campine Recycling NV diverse vragen gekregen van de Europese Commissie en verleent zij haar volle medewerking aan het onderzoek.

De “mededeling van bezwaarpunten” van de Europese Commissie, is een document waarin de Commissie haar preliminaire punten meegeeft, zodat de betrokken ondernemingen in staat zijn om hun kant van de zaak uiteen te zetten. Campine Recycling NV heeft nu de mogelijkheid om op deze punten te antwoorden in een Reactie.

Het is ons standpunt dat Campine Recycling NV steeds gehandeld heeft in lijn met de Europese Commissie’s wet en regelgeving die de circulaire economie strategie implementeren.

Campine Recycling NV is actief in de recyclage van loodstartbatterijen. Deze worden bij Campine Recycling NV via best beschikbare technieken gerecycleerd in lood dat door de consumenten opnieuw gebruikt wordt, voornamelijk opnieuw in loodbatterijen. Loodstartbatterijen worden in Europa quasi volledig gerecycleerd. Lood wordt op de Londen Metal Exchange verhandeld en de prijszetting gebeurt transparant op dagelijkse basis.
