Exploring new technologies and emerging value chains
Our commitment to storing vital products with care helps both to meet the needs of a growing population and to reach society’s broader goals. These goals include providing access to affordable, acceptable, sustainable and reliable energy, and facilitating the introduction of cleaner, low-carbon fuels; improving air quality; and contributing to a safe and healthy work environment for our employees and contractors.
In line with these ambitions, we have set up Vopak Ventures to identify investment opportunities in start-ups and scale-ups in new technologies and emerging value chains. In this, we focus on two areas: Sustainability and Digitalization.
With our sustainability fund we focus on facilitating new sustainable solutions in areas like, zero emission fuels (like hydrogen), green feedstocks for the industry, recycling solutions, carbon capture storage, flow batteries.
With our digitalization fund we focus on new technologies to improve the service towards our customers and make our operations and our industry more efficient, effective, safe and reducing our environmental footprint.
