With the announcement of the completion of Aramis in September 2021, the Dutch industry completed its three musketeer approach to decarbonization. The Dutch economy is one of the most carbon-intensive in the EU, with 9.06 tons of CO2 emitted per capita in 2019. The reason is the large petrochemical and steel industry near the coast at the ports of Rotterdam and Amsterdam. The Dutch government aims to structurally decarbonize this industry through electrification and the use of (imported) green hydrogen. This will take major investments and several decades. In the meantime, the emissions can be reduced faster by sequestering CO2 in depleted gas fields on the North Sea. To build the infrastructure, three public-private partnerships have been established: Porthos, Athos, and Aramis.
