Terhills NV, a subsidiary of the Limburg Investment Company LRM, has the task of transforming this site into a unique tourist destination. In 2011, two-hundred and nineteen hectares of industrial sites were transformed into natural (100 hectares) and recreational (119 hectares) areas.
Kempen and Maasland Regional Landscape created the main gateway to the Hoge Kempen National Park. In the midst of nature, Hasselt University built ‘ECOTRON’, a unique research infrastructure. The facility is implementing scientific research into the impact of climate change on biodiversity.
