In Diksmuidsesteenweg, the previous auction buildings made way for the current packaging department of the REO Auction. The REO Auction acquired the adjacent Vuylsteke site in 2011. After a thorough soil sanitation, a new box shed was put into service on the 3-hectare plot for taking in, setting up and sorting one-way packaging in 2015. An 8,000 m² demonstration and research greenhouse was put on the roof of the new building. In this roof greenhouse, practical research will be conducted into the soilless cultivation of leaf crops and fruit and vegetables, innovative energy-saving cultivation systems, sustainable applications for industrial residual heat and efficient allocation of space. The construction of the roof greenhouse, an investment by Inagro and the province of West Flanders, starts in 2018.
