The Netherlands brims over with water activities. Not only does it utilize high value, state of the art water treatment technology to obtain its drinking water and/or to purify it's sewage waste water, it is also key in the development and growth of the local industrial sectors such as food & beverage-, paper- and chemical industry.
The Dutch are recognized to be amongst the best in the global market with thier knowledge, products and expertise. To keep this head start, innovation has become a second nature to The Netherlands and as a result a continuous flow of new innovative concepts are being introduced to the global market.
The Netherlands, breeding ground for innovative and sustainable water technology, serves as the gateway to the large European market due to it's geographical position (port of Rotterdam and Schiphol Airport) and its favorable tax and investment climate.
