That is why we are excited to start working together with Seenons, Schiphol and Rotterdam The Hague Airport, with a challenge that goes much further than just efficient and sustainable collection of waste streams.” says Marc den Hartog, managing director Commercial Waste Netherlands, from Renewi. “We will be using all of our innovative capacity and national network in order to turn Schiphol and Rotterdam The Hague Airport’s waste into new materials.”

For all parties involved, sustainability is the overarching factor when it comes to decisions around logistics, processing and reducing waste.

Independent platform in the sustainable transition

The partnership between Seenons and Renewi is unique ‘ Seenons is an independent platform that normally does not submit a tender with a market player. In this instance we have made an exception.’ explains Joost Kamermans, co-founder and CEO of Seenons.

“Our platform is designed for sustainable waste management by connecting different players in the waste chain in order to make an impact. Through our innovative software, without having our own pick up trucks or processing facilities, we can facilitate the transition to zero waste. For us it it about reduction, reuse and the optimal recycling of materials. The transport and processing of waste streams are a part of this. For which we will activate our network. This has also been agreed with Renewi, Schiphol and Rotterdam The Hague Airport. We have to do this together.”
