      A call to discover the major issues of a world-class port and understand how it addresses energy and climate challenges and allies itself with future solutions by leveraging its position, location and systems. Indeed, the port has been testing new energy sources for several years now, such as hydrogen produced by Antwerp Chemistry, the largest integrated chemical cluster in Europe.

At the heart of Brussels, on a rooftop of the Foodmet food hall spanning 4,000m², he has set up an ultra-modern farm that operates on the principle of aquaponics, a process that actually dates back to the Aztecs and ancient China.
