With the ambition from the Dutch government to accelerate internationalization in every aspect, especially in the circular economy transition, Holland Circular Hotspot signed an agreement with Milgro, a circular company that offers technologies and services in (sustainable) waste and raw material management. The aim of this new partnership is to develop international activities to intensify the circular approach for the themes of Cities & Regions and Agri-food.
