To achieve this competitive and climate-neutral industry by 2050, the SDR partners work closely together within innovative sustainability programmes:

The ambitious Hydrogen Delta Programme aims to make the industry more sustainable by phasing out grey hydrogen through low-carbon hydrogen investments. The programme aspires to position the region as the largest hydrogen cluster in the Netherlands, Flanders and Europe.

The Spark Delta Programme reduces CO2 emissions through electrification and optimisation of production processes by using innovative technologies. Replacing fossil fuels with electricity from emission-free sources has a tremendous impact on the electricity grid.

Spark Delta is working towards a robust, cost-effective electricity grid that can transport the explosive increase in supply and demand.

Key subprojects within Spark Delta include landfall (for cables from offshore windfarms), a 380 kV connection in Zeelandic Flanders and an additional 380 kV power station in Borssele.

The Heat Delta programme provides insight into the supply and demand of industrial residual heat, translating it into concrete and feasible projects. The focus is twofold: residual heat from the process industry to the built environment and residual heat couplings ‘industry to industry’.

In addition, through this programme, Smart Delta Resources helps companies in the food sector find suitable technologies for the decarbonisation of High Temperature heat. (HT heat).

The Carbon Connect Delta Programme aims to capture, transport and store 3.9 Mt of CO2 by 2030 through Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). The application of CCS is also crucial within the hydrogen transition pathway. Development of the CCS system is an essential step towards a carbon neutral and circular industry in the region.

"Hydrogen is crucial for making the region's industrial companies more sustainable and also offers great opportunities in the area of mobility and in the built environment."
