Rotterdam can supply Europe with 4.6 megatonnes of hydrogen by 2030
May 10, 2022 – In collaboration with exporting countries, the port of Rotterdam and the cluster of companies operating here can supply Northwestern Europe with 4.6 million tonnes of hydrogen annually by 2030. This is considerably more than expected. The consumption of 4.6 million tonnes of hydroge yields 46 million tonnes of CO2 reduction, and it increases Europe’s energy independence. This hydrogen amount is the total the Port of Rotterdam Authority has come up with on the basis of specific projects and realistic plans, which companies and exporting countries are now working on.
Delta Corridor links industrie with clean h2 and offshore ccs solutions
April 6, 2022 – The Port of Rotterdam Authority and cross sector industry partners are supporting the development of the Delta Corridor project, comprising of a bundle of four pipelines between the Rotterdam port, Chemelot and the German Rhineland region. This project will provide access to clean hydrogen and carbon capture and storage (CCS) capacity being realized and in addition will result in a shift in pipeline transport capacity for propylene and LPG. The infrastructure will connect major inland industry clusters in the Netherlands and Germany with branches along the entire corridor. The access is an urgent and essential need for hard to abate industries to meet the EU climate targets as set for 2030.
