The industrial port zones of Dunkirk and Fos-sur-Mer, then Le Havre and Saint-Nazaire, became the first winners of the national ZIBaC (low-carbon industrial zone) call for projects.

In Fos, the Syrius program (SYnergies Régénératives IndUstrielles Sud), developed by the PIICTO association, of which GRTgaz is a part, was selected. It mobilizes more than 40 industrialists and institutions around structuring decarbonization projects. GRTgaz has ambitions for the development of renewable gases and the transport and storage of hydrogen and carbon dioxide.

“The ZIBaC will help accelerate essential infrastructure projects”, says Franck Vincendon, Development Manager at GRTgaz.

In Dunkirk, the Dunkirk Urban Community, the Grand Port Maritime and even the CCI work together. Alongside them, GRTgaz is working on future hydrogen or CO2 transport networks.
