  • Degussa Anvers va construire une unité de méthionine de 150.000 t
    Degussa Anvers a été choisi par la société-mère allemande comme lieu d’implantation pour la plus grande unité de méthionine de par le monde. Le projet implique un investissement de 250 mio. d’EUR. La nouvelle unité aura une capacité de production de 150.000 t. Le groupe chimique allemand a basé son choix sur l’excellente infrastructure à Anvers et les avantages logistiques de l’implantation près du port. La nouvelle installation tournera à plein régime d’ici 2005.
  • Le RIE néerlandais plaide pour le tracé historique du Rhin d’Acier
    Les conclusions du Rapport d’Impact sur l’Environnement concernant la réactivation du Rhin d’Acier ont été présentées avant-hier à Roermond: la réutilisation du tracé historique pour une période de cinq ans ne provoquera pas de dommages irréparables. L’étude internationale concernant les diverses variantes du tracé arrive à la même conclusion. Rien ne s’oppose donc plus à l’exécution du mémorandum signé par Netelenbos et Durant. Divers bureaux d’étude encaisseront cependant encore d’importants honoraires avant que le tracé définitif ne soit fixé.
  • La valeur ajoutée générée par le port d’Anvers en 99 a chuté de 5,9% à 6 mia. d’EUR
    Pour la première fois depuis 1993, le port d’Anvers a vu la valeur ajoutée qu’il génère par ses activités diminuer en 1999 de 5,9%, sur base de prix nominaux, à 6 mia. d’euros, soit 242,7 mia. de BEF, ceci par rapport à l’exercice record de 1998. En termes réels, ce recul était pratiquement de même importance, soit -5,4%. C’est ce qui ressort de la onzième édition du rapport de la Banque Nationale de Belgique sur l’importance économique du port d’Anvers. Parallèlement le PIB a progressé de 2,7%. Il s ‘avère que ce sont essentiellement les résultats de quelques grandes entreprises du secteur industriel qui ont influencé les chiffres de manière négative. Par contre, la valeur ajoutée du secteur des services portuaires a enregistré une croissance de 1%.
  • “La concertation sur les tarifs dans le transport fret va à l’encontre des règles de concurrence de l’UE”
    La Commissie européenne a adressé un courrier à l’Association internationale du transport aérien (IATA) pour lui faire savoir qu’elle estime pour le moment que la concertation de l’IATA sur les tarifs de transport de marchandises limite la libre-concurrence et n’est plus essentielle pour proposer aux clients des services “inter-lining” efficaces au sein de l’EEE (Espace Economique Européen).
