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 in March 2016, which resulted in the commissioning of this pipeline in 2018.
Hydrogen is released in the various DOW naphtha crackers, and Dow does not need all of this. Yara Sluiskil can make good use of this hydrogen as a raw material in their production processes. At the time, it was the first existing natural gas pipeline that was made suitable by Gasunie for the transport of hydrogen. Hydrogen for industrial application has therefore been exchanged efficiently and safely via the pipeline, which is 12 kilometers long. The project of this hydrogen exchange initiated by Smart Delta Resources is a good example of circular economy in practice.
