Portugal and Netherlands work together to export green hydrogen

PORTUGAL AND NETHERLANDS WORK TOGETHER TO EXPORT GREEN HYDROGENA new memorandum of understanding has been signed between Portugal and the Netherlands, to explore the transportation of green hydrogen between the two countries.

The agreement will enable the transport of renewable hydrogen from a new project in Sines, Portugal to the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

Both countries are in agreement of the growing importance of renewable gases such as green hydrogen, wihch will play a large part in Europe’s decarbonisation goals. In a statement they confirmed their cooperation to help develop supply chains for the export of green hydrogen.

Just 2 months ago Portugal announced its national hydrogen strategy, involving a hefty €7 billion investment by 2030.  They plan to develop the Sines hydrogen facility, a national laboratory focused on green technology.

And although there is masses of hydrogen on Planet Earth (a misnomer: it should be called Planet Ocean) mostly disguised as water, it will cost immense amounts of money to separate the oxygen from the hydrogen. So although of itself use of hydrogen as a fuel will not affect the planet´s atmosphere, the environmental cost of initially isolating it will be quite heavy.

Quoting Peter Booker:
Green hydrogen, renewable hydrogen? How is hydrogen renewable, since it is an element? And like many gases, colourless.


2/3 of the planet is covered with water. Water is 2/3 hydrogen.
By the time it runs out the planet will have been burned up by the sun.

Airbus recently announced plans to produce a hydrogen powered jet aircraft.
