Routekaart Vleesverwerkende Sector

Project > Naar een integraal duurzame sector

We developed a roadmap of the Dutch meat process sector, production and processing companies and their suppliers, together with DNV. The road map shows opportunities for optimal use of all energy and material flows in the product chain of chicken, pork and beef, and maps their sources. The maps bring insight to all stakeholders involved, and enables decisions on improving entire sections of the production chain at once.

Insights

Within the product chain of cattle farms the highest negative impacts on natural resources is caused by  decentralized cooling and freezing, and meat exceeding the expiration date. Freezing is energy intensive and decentralized cooling is often done using inefficient refrigerators.

In addition, spoilage of food in households is relatively high. These products have a high embodied energy and water values, in addition to many other environmental impacts. To reduce the amount of produce and thereby improve the performance of the meat sector, we propose several innovative cooling methods.

Mapping the products flows and the need for natural resources enables the sector to pinpoint actions that have the largest overall impact. Apart from quantifying the impact of each measure it also puts each action in perspective of the bigger picture and demonstrates the relations within the supply chain.

This project was made possible with the participation of  Nepluvi, VNV, COV, AKSV and the KNS.

DNV Afvalwaterketens

Visie voor Nederlands Afvalwater

This project is a visual exploration of the Dutch waste water sector in 2030. It takes a closer look at the role of waste water processing facilities for the provision of clean water, renewable energy, and valuable material inputs for society of the future.

The vision for 2030 concerns the role of waste water management in four major parts of society: the built environment, agriculture, industry, and natural lands.

Afvalwater innovatiespel

Sociaal kaartspel om stakeholders in keten te verbinden

SWIG is een sociaal kaartspel met als thema de duurzame afvalwaterketen. Het wordt ingezet in groepssessies met stakeholders om breed overzicht in de keten te krijgen, spelers kennis met elkaar te laten maken en inzicht te krijgen in innovatieve duurzame keuzes in de keten.

We ontwikkelden het spel voor en in samenwerking met Det Norske Veritas (DNV) als onderdeel vn het Routekaart Afvalwater project. Het spel wordt met veel entousiasme gespeeld in DNV workshops.
