Planet in the news: Biotech Campus Delft: straks broedplaats voor 5.000 mensen

Vorige week berichtte dsm-firmenich dat de Gistfabriek in Delft eind 2025 gaat sluiten. Naast het begrijpelijk sentiment en de weemoed daarover: Er gloort ook iets nieuws op het terrein van de oude arbeidersfabriek langs de Schie. Hier ontwikkelt zich een ultramodern innovatiecentrum op het gebied van biotechnologie. Daarachter schuilt een bedrijfsfilosofie, die met haar streven naar duurzaam gemaakte producten opmerkelijke overeenkomsten vertoont met de oude maatschappelijke idealen van Gistfabriek-oprichters Jacques en Agneta van Marken-Matthes.
