Olaf van der Kolk
Director, Aquaminerals, Netherlands


Olaf is AquaMinerals’ director, a Dutch and Belgian water utilities owned company which is the intermediate, on the field of water-originating resources, between the water sector and various economics sectors. There are numerous opportunities valorising these residuals, creating a positive impact on the sectors’ finance, environment and image. Demand for these alternative resources is there, but being successful requires the watersector to transform to a reliable supplier of resources and therefore a professional, well-planned and collective approach.
