Ekopak announces the Waterkracht project.
Together with water-link, PMV and Aquafin, we will process the wastewater of Antwerp households into cooling water for companies in the Port of Antwerp. As from 2025, a new cooling water plant to be built will recycle 20 billion litres of water on an annual basis. Ekopak will build and operate this plant. This project will make a significant contribution to the WaaS revenue as from 2025.
Sponsorship Quick-Step Alphavinyl team.
From 2022 to 2024, Ekopak will be one of the official ‘co-title’ shirt sponsors of the Quick-step Alphavinyl professional cycling team. With this sponsorship we aim to build our brand, not only in our Belgian home market but also abroad. This partnership also helps us to create awareness about the importance of water.
Announcement of building plan for new premises Deinze.
As a consequence of our increasing growth, we are investing in new premises in Deinze, near Ghent. Ekopak will construct the new building on a plot of approximately 2.1 ha. The building will be a tangible illustration of Ekopak’s vision of sustainability and includes everything to be completely self-sufficient in terms of energy and water consumption. The premises will be commissioned in spring 2024.

The Waterkracht project wins a Trends Impact Award in the Circular Economy category, in recognition ofe Ekopak’s entire value creation model. Trends is the leading economic weekly in Belgium.
Participation Belgian Economic Mission.
Ekopak participates in the Belgian Economic Mission to Japan, led by Princess Astrid. In this way, Ekopak wants to further internationalize its products and services and also raise awareness about water scarcity in other countries. Following the successful project at Takeda in Belgium, we took the opportunity to visit their Japanese headquarters to discuss future collaborations.
The ‘Circeaulair’ project kicks off.
Together with Aquafin and EPICo², we are further promoting the reuse of wastewater for industry. In this specific project, the effluent (or treated wastewater) coming from Aquafin’s sewage treatment plant (WWTP) will be converted by Ekopak into process water for the industry. If all goes according to plan, this project will contribute to WaaS revenue as of 2024. Circeaulair receives a grant from the Flemish Government of 2.6 million euros within the framework of the “Blue Deal Circular Water reuse effluent from sewage treatment plants.”
