Proton Ventures received an innovation contract from BioVoice Innovation & Business Booster for the SABIC Hydrogen Challenge.
This innovation contract with a pilot assignment gives Proton the opportunity to conduct a feasibility study. It is being investigated whether it is technically and economically feasible to build a green ammonia plant with the aim of locally producing 8,500 tons of green ammonia per year at SABIC’s production location, Bergen op Zoom.
As from 4 November, the Green Chemistry Campus has a new director: Connie Paasse. Connie is an experienced manager from the international chemical industry. In recent years, the Green Chemistry Campus has grown into an incubator that offers a comprehensive solution for innovative biobased entrepreneurs operating at the cutting edge of agro and chemistry. Connie will give direction to the strategy to further expand and accelerate this success.
With the help of a financial contribution from the Province of Noord-Brabant, the municipality of Bergen op Zoom, in cooperation with the Green Chemistry Campus, has € 1,187,500 available for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) from the European Union that are active in the biobased economy.

TNO’s Energy Transition Unit (former ECN) is joining Shared Research Center Biorizon at the Green Chemistry Campus in Bergen op Zoom, an incubator for the upscaling of sustainable materials and chemicals for the building and packaging industry. At the Campus, TNO will be working on bio-aromatics that can be applied in bitumen, rubber, marine fuels and resins. Now, all 3 horizons (research lines) of Biorizon are being represented at the Campus, that also functions as Biorizon’s headquarters. This further strengthens both Biorizon and the biobased economy in the region.
