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.

Zeeland hydrogen symbiosis has been proving its added value for three years now

One of the first major successes of Smart Delta Resources was in the form of a Green Deal for the hydrogen exchange between Dow Benelux and Yara Sluiskil.

Scheldt Delta Region takes responsibility in making industry more sustainable

Greenhouse gas emissions in industry must be reduced to zero by 2050. Industry in Zeeland, united in the Smart Delta Resources partnership, aims to reduce CO2 emissions by more than half in 9 years.

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 clean hydrogen investments. 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.


Spark Delta

The Spark Delta program aims to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions through electrification and optimization of production processes through existing or innovative technology. Fossil fuels and raw materials are replaced by electricity from emission-free sources.
