Water and the water cycle – that is, all the ways in which people use water and return it to the global water system – are essential for all life on earth. Too much water, or too little water of the right quality, can have a drastic impact on people and the environment. We need top-quality, tailored knowledge to optimally organise and manage the water cycle, and thus allow our society to provide two basic needs in people’s lives: healthy and safe drinking water, in a (water) pollution-free environment.

KWR Watercycle Research Institute assists society in optimally organising and managing the water cycle by: creating knowledge through top-quality research, building bridges between science, business and society, promoting societal innovation by applying the best knowledge available.

AEB (Waste Energy Company) makes an optimal contribution to a clean society by providing solutions to waste problems. AEB does this by recovering more and more raw materials for reuse and by generating the maximum amount of electricity from the remaining waste. Working with partners, it creates innovations aimed at promoting the sustainability of waste processing. AEB also researches new possibilities for the separation and recycling of raw materials from waste, and explores with its partners new production processes to generate energy from biomass.
