December 8th 2017, 28 national and international private, public and semi-public parties, including Proton Ventures, signed the very first regional green hydrogen-agreement. The parties are committed to conducting possible research and where possible through a program-based approach, such as the use of green hydrogen and ammonia in shipping and agriculture.
The regional ‘green’ hydrogen-agreemnt was established on the initiative of the province of Zuid-Holland and the municipality of Goeree-Overflakkee and on the advice of Steven van Eijck.
Together with Yara, Siemens, Van Iperen and Van Peperstraten Groep, Proton Ventures will develop, realize, operate, monitor and evaluate a demonstration plant of green ammonia at Goeree Overflakkee and use it as an example for larger-scale factories.
