Vopak is developing new infrastructure solutions to actively contribute to the introduction of future vital products.
To actively contribute to the introduction of future vital products, we are focusing on new infrastructure solutions in the areas of low-carbon and renewable hydrogen (ammonia, liquid hydrogen, LOHC), CO2, sustainable feedstocks, and long duration energy storage. These future vital products are used all around us, such as sustainable transport fuels for airplanes, flow batteries for storing clean electricity, and hydrogen, which can be used to store and transport renewable energy.
Our expertise and our presence in the main industrial clusters makes us well-equipped to actively contribute to the development of new supply chains for the energy and feedstocks of the future.

Hydrogen (ammonia, liquid hydrogen, LOHC)
Vopak is exploring various opportunities, together with partners, to facilitate the export/import of green (liquefied) hydrogen, LOHC and ammonia from and to various locations worldwide.
Vopak is a partner in H-vision, a hydrogen consortium in the Port of Rotterdam. With this network, Rotterdam's industrial sector can make a swift and substantial contribution to the Dutch climate targets for 2030.
Vopak and Hydrogenious are preparing a pilot project to transport liquid organic hydrogen (LOHC) from Germany to the Netherlands. The world’s largest project plant for storing hydrogen in LOHC is currently being built in Germany.
Together with partners, Vopak is developing an import terminal for green ammonia as a hydrogen carrier in the Port of Rotterdam named ACE Terminal.
Vopak signed an agreement together with partners to study the feasibility of producing, liquifying and transporting green hydrogen from Portugal (Sines) to the Netherlands (Rotterdam).
A new hydrogen supply chain from Sweden to the Netherlands (Rotterdam) and Germany is being developed by Hydrogenious, enabled by their LOHC technology.
Vopak Singapore explores expanding its ammonia infrastructure for low carbon power generation and bunker fuel.
Vopak is preparing for the import and storage of green ammonia (as a hydrogen carrier) at Vopak Terminal Vlissingen.
Vopak is collaborating with Gasunie and Gate terminal to investigate the development of an independent hub terminal for liquid CO2 on the Maasvlakte in the Port of Rotterdam.
Vopak and PETRONAS signed an MoU for the development of the value chain for CO2 infrastructure in the Southeast Asia region.
Vopak is exploring opportunities for CO2 infrastructure in Antwerp, Flushing, Houston and Singapore together with partners. Developing CO2 infrastructure is part our new energy strategy.
Low carbon fuels & feedstocks
Vopak is exploring opportunities to contribute to the import of green ammonia from Morocco, Australia and/or the Middle East together with partners. We are experienced in safely handling ammonia at several locations within our global network.
At our Vlaardingen Terminal, new tanks have been built for storing waste-based feedstocks in the Port of Rotterdam for the production of biodiesel and sustainable aviation fuel.
Vopak is partnering with Xycle to develop a chemical recycling plant that will turn plastic waste into pyrolysis oil. Together we aim to scale up the technology by creating the first chemical recycling plant in Rotterdam.
Vopak is repurposing 22 oil storage tanks in Los Angeles, USA to sustainable aviation fuel and renewable diesel. This amounts to 148,000 cbm being repurposed.
Vopak Ventures partners with Infinity Recycling to support the chemical industry in becoming more sustainable through advanced plastic recycling, as part of our strategy to accelerate in new energies and sustainable feedstocks.
Long Duration Energy Storage
Vopak is piloting the vanadium redox flow battery technology in Singapore and Australia together with partners. Our presence in the main industrial clusters makes us well-positioned for this development.
Vopak is partnering with Elestor for the development of a hydrogen bromine flow battery. The joint ambition is to scale up the electricity storage capacity of these flow batteries.
