Transition towards the world’s most sustainable harbour June 17, 2019
For the last century, the Port of Rotterdam has been the economic power house of the Netherlands. Yet, its industry is responsible for one sixth of total Dutch CO2 emissions. So Rotterdam is a good place to start, when moving towards a more sustainable economy and energy system!
The transition to a sustainable harbour will be a monumental challenge. It requires contributions from all industries and implementation of all available CO2 abatement technologies, also if these are controversial. Bringing all those things together requires strong leadership and a clear vision for the next decades.
Yvonne van der Laan (VP Industry & Bulk Cargo at Port of Rotterdam) will present the different transition paths to become the world’s most sustainable harbour, including all roadblocks on the way to carbon neutrality.
Marcel Galjee (Director Energy at Nouryon) will speak about building a sustainable and circular industry through partnerships. Highlighted by Nouryon’s green hydrogen, circular & Carbon Capture Utilization (CCU) projects, more particularly the initiatives in the Rotterdam area.
This event is kindly hosted by Port of Rotterdam in co-operation with the INSEAD Energy Club.
