At local scale, we are active partners in the Coq Vert intiative (http://www.coqvert.be/en/) aiming at establishing of a competitive bio-based economy in Wallonia by putting together a concerted strategy.
Internationally, GreenWin in involved in various green chemistry relevant networks (BIC – Bio-industries consortium) ; Vanguard Bioeconomy Initiative ; ECRN et Suschem) as well numerous international projects. Through our local and international networks, we will contribute to AgriChemWhey visibility and draw relationships between ACW and other initiatives.
