Beautiful piece of nature in construction

Van der Avoird Trayplant works together with “ABG Gemeente” and “Brabants Landschap” on the construction of a beautiful piece of nature.
This for water collection and visual integration.
We also look at the possibilities for constructing a hiking trail through this beautiful piece of nature.
A path that will lead nature lovers along pollard willows, walnut trees, native aquatic plants and a variety of informative facts.
If you have any questions, please contact Peter van der Avoird ([email protected]).

Significantly reduce gas consumption!

We are making sustainability in the broadest sense of the word. Health for the employee, our plants,
the consumer, the environment, the industry and our company.  We try to become more sustainable
with “a healthy common sense”. That means that we not only look at the economic possibilities such
as various illogical subsidies, but that we always ask ourselves “is it really sustainable and does it contribute to the whole in the long term?

“WKO Installation” (Heat Cold Storage)
In the WKO installation, the natural groundwater in the deeper soil is used as an energy buffer.
The use of soil energy is a sustainable solution that significantly reduces gas consumption.
Do you want to know what is sustainable with us and what we will be doing in this area in the coming
years? We will show this via the website and various other media.
