14. Cleaning waste water

Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources

TC-GlobalGoals-Icon14Generally, only one sea container is required for the overseas transport of TenCate Field in a box™. Again, this is due to the many innovative technological and material solutions incorporated into the system. Traditional solutions often require the use of two or three sea containers. In addition, the container does not need to be returned: it is converted to a community building on location. This means that TenCate Field in a box™ also significantly reduces environmental impact and energy consumption during transport.

A significant saving can also be achieved on land transport thanks to the efficient packaging and the fact that many local materials are used for filling underlayers. There is no need to order in raw materials from other locations. Furthermore, GreenSource™, the ecological system for sustainable water management, can filter contaminated water to produce water that is suitable for spraying, irrigation, hygiene and drinking water.

In summary, this project: 

  • Offers an integrates system approach; 
  • Significantly reduces CO2 emissions; 
  • Uses efficient, well thought-out logistics processes;
  • Uses efficient groundwork processes;
  • Provides local water management solutions.
