Clean room 2
Here’s where Space Research is in.  Earth’s dust is out

Minimising the footprint of cutting-edge space R&D on Earth maximises the benefits of space research for society as a whole. To ensure sustainable operations, Deerns designed the cleanroom installations for the new, future-proof headquarters of the Netherlands Institute for Space Research (SRON). One, crucial aspect is the sustainable energy concept , that optimises use and re-use of heat use, another the highly specific clean room. SRON’s lithographic processes for the development of ultra-sensitive sensors require highly specialised installations for supply and exhaust of gases, air purification tools and ultra-clean water.
