Keynote insight:

Nico Van Dooren, director new business of the port of Rotterdam

During this webinar, Nico will share the latest insights and developments of the energy transition program for the port of Rotterdam.

The port of Rotterdam is Europe’s largest sea port and home to a large petrochemical and refining cluster. 17% of the Dutch CO2 emissions originates from the Port. The Port of Rotterdam Authority is committed to combating climate change and wants to play a leading role in the global energy transition. The reduction of CO₂ emissions and efficient use of raw and residual materials are important tasks for the Port Authority. The energy transition task is clear: We aim to bring the port of Rotterdam in line with the Paris Climate Agreement objectives. Together with companies, we are working in 3 steps towards a carbon neutral port and industrial area. Steps 1 to 3 are, respectively, efficiency & infrastructure, towards a new energy system and towards a new raw materials and fuel system.
