Making the transition to a carbon neutral Port of Rotterdam

The Port of Rotterdam is thinking big. As Europe’s largest port, it wants to continue to provide a thriving environment where shipping runs smoothly and safely and businesses flourish. At the same time, it wants to minimise impact on climate and nature – creating a cleaner and greener port which contributes to a healthy living environment for everyone. This journey to a smart carbon-neutral port of the future calls for radical innovation and new technologies. It involves a new energy system which will be based on green power and hydrogen in combination with a material transition based on circular economy principles. Discover how these big ideas are being converted into reality.

In this session Maike Akkers and Douwe van der Stroom, who manage infrastructure and digitalisation respectively for the energy transition at the Port of Rotterdam, join with Bart Vander Velpen, who leads the net zero industry programme at Royal HaskoningDHV. They will describe how the port is achieving its ambitions, with particular reference to the energy transition, resource transition and innovation.
