GreenPoint is striving towards a cleaner environment by offering advanced gas and vapour emission treatment solutions.
Processing vapors is challenging given the variety of vapors and their concentrations. Our solution converts vapor pollution into energy.
Mobile and stationary degassing hubs. Temporary or permanent. Starting up operations in Rotterdam and Amsterdam right now.
Whilst the first German degas prohibitions date from 2012, Zuid-Holland and Noord-Brabant are the first Dutch provinces to ban open air degassing of carciogenic benzene.
The Don Quichot is developed in cooperation with the Port of Rotterdam as the first dedicated floating degassing station. The Don Quichot will enable the Port of Rotterdam to fulfil their zero emission ambitions.
More provinces are adopting Zuid-Holland and Noord-Brabant's initiative by prohibiting open-air degassing. Main waterways like Maas, Rhine, Waal and IJssel are now covered by the prohibition, paving the way for alternative ways to process vapors.
While the Don Quichot is being vetted and tested, GreenPoint Maritime Services is founded. GreenPoint's is focusing to offer degassing services and vapor solutions in port areas.
Atmospheric protection will officially become the responsibility of polluters. The Dutch government will ratify the CDNI in 2020. From that point on, processing gaseous residues will become the responsibility of those owning or transporting these goods.
In close cooperation with the Port of Amsterdam, Noordzeekanaal Environmental Service and MAIN, GreenPoint has been working towards a degassing centre in Amsterdam. The new degassing station has been completed and is starting up operations.
