Our ambition is for a competitive and climate neutral industry by 2050. The investments in this are significant, as is our impact as a region: simply because of our scale in CO2 emissions and industrial hydrogen consumption.

The SDR region is home to a powerful industry cluster of chemicals, steel, energy and food. Our ambitions and challenges are great, as is our impact as a region: because of our scale in CO2 emissions and industrial hydrogen consumption (the largest regional hydrogen use in the Benelux) and in size. North Sea Port alone has an added value of 14 billion euros and (in) direct employment of 100,000 jobs.

Hydrogen Delta

The ambitious Hydrogen Delta Program aims to make the industry more sustainable by phasing out gray hydrogen through green, blue, yellow and possibly orange hydrogen. The program also aspires to position the region as the largest hydrogen cluster in the Netherlands, Flanders and Europe.

Carbon Connect Delta

The Carbon Connect Delta Program aims to capture 1 Mton CO2 in the region from 2023, with a growth potential of up to 6.5 Mton CO2 in 2030. The project thus potentially makes a substantial contribution to the industrial task of reducing 19.4 Mtonnes per year of greenhouse gases by 2030.
