DUJAT and N.V. NOM, the Investment and Development Agency for the Northern Netherlands, cordially invite you to attend our upcoming Hydrogen & Chemistry Event on Thursday, March 3rd, 2022 in the province of Groningen.

With climate change accelerating, the energy transition is more urgent than ever. A successful energy transition requires new, clean energy sources and systems. The Northern Netherlands uses its extensive experience as an energy region to make full use of the opportunities presented by hydrogen. Here, we have the expertise, the people, and the infrastructure to shape and integrate the hydrogen economy. Together, we work on a green energy system and the industry of the future. And we really want to share this with you.

The first part of the day will start with a welcome by Regional Minister IJzebrand Rijzebol, followed by expert speakers. The first speaker is Mr. Catrinus Jepma, Professor Emeritus of the University of Groningen and Senior Advisor at New Energy Coalition. He will share his perspective of hydrogen developments in Europe and the Netherlands. Our second speaker, Mr. Patrick Cnubben, Manager LNG & Hydrogen at New Energy Coalition, will further elaborate on the Groningen region as the first Hydrogen Valley of Europe.

After these presentations and a lunch at the Province of Groningen, we will continue with a tour at the new and impressive Forum Groningen, located in the heart of city with a spectacular view. Here, Mr. Jonas van Dorp, Business Development Manager at Groningen Airport Eelde, will present the ambitions and achievements of this airport as Europe’s first Hydrogen Valley Airport.

For the second part of the day, we will travel to Veendam and visit Kisuma Chemicals. This company is a subsidiary of Kyowa Chemical Industry and is the world’s largest producer of synthetic hydrotalcite. Managing Director Marcel Oolbekkink is pleased to welcome the DUJAT community, introduce his company, and host our concluding drinks.

Note: This event will be strictly organized in accordance with the current corona measures, and therefore we can only welcome a limited number of guests. If due to changes in these measures the event can no longer take place, we will inform you accordingly.
