Deviation Witte Nete
In spring 2006 Sibelco diverted the river : "Witte Nete" which ran through the quarry "Donk" . The diversion happened over a distance of 2 km. By doing this, the diverted part of the river got back her meandering it had in 1877. This was necessary to secure the future of protected fish-species such as the loach and the bullhead.

For this project Sibelco was awarded the prestigious price of Inbev-Baillet Latour.
