Is your company investigating options for cheaper, climate neutral and/or circular products and services? Are you working together with other companies or researchers in a partnership? Then you might be eligible for the TSE Industry scheme.

On July 6th, this new subsidy scheme airs, with a budget of 8.86 million and a maximum of 500K per project. The scope of the scheme ranges from:

  • MMIP6 (e.a. CCU and CCS), MMIP7 and MMIP8:
    • Closure of industrial chains
    • A CO2-free industrial heating system
    • Maximum electrification and radically renewed processes
  • Climate neutral aviation and shipping fuels (including synthetic fuels, provided that they reduce greenhouse gasses by 70%, compared to fossil fuels)
  • A module for the circular economy.

Other requirements for this scheme are:

  • Projects for CCS are focused on implementation and faster rollout before 2030;
  • Projects for CCU must have a first market application by 2030 at the latest;
  • The scheme opens on July 6 and closes September 14.

Projects that don’t fit into the scheme:

  • Large-scale innovation projects: they fall under the MOOI scheme.
  • Pilot and demonstration projects fall under the Energy and Climate Innovation Demonstration (DEI+).
  • Projects that focus on the reduction of the basic amount of an SDE+ category fall under Renewable energy.
  • For fundamental research, other forms of funding are possible, via NWO/NWA and the PPS allowance.

On November 4th, we are organizing a hackathon on CCU. More specifically, we will explore the world of building materials that capture CO2 and store it permanently. The reason for organizing this hackathon is creating awareness of and knowledge about these solutions, that can help us achieve our public and private goals on CO2 reduction.

The CO2 Smart Use website aims to connect all parties involved in CCU in the Netherlands, whether they are national or international players. We are therefore looking for all businesses in the Netherlands who already work on CCU, what they do, and who they’d like to get into contact with. What do you have to offer for the Dutch context?


Mark can tell you all about the CCU network and would love to help you connect with other parties in the CCU industry!
