The Hydrogen Stream: Northern Europe driving hydrogen project development


The Dutch port of Rotterdam and the port of Pecém, Brazil, have signed declaration of intent to enhance bilateral cooperation in port development, logistics, hinterland connection, and port-related energy projects. This includes offshore wind energy and green hydrogen production. The agreement was signed in the presence of Prime Minister Rutte and the Dutch economic delegation during their visit to Brazil.

Thyssenkrupp Nucera has introduced a 20 MW AWE module, emphasizing the importance of scalability for green hydrogen as a carbon-free energy source. The module is designed to be interconnected with multiple units.


BASF Environmental Catalyst and Metal Solutions and Advent Technologies have reached a new agreement to collaborate on building a full loop component supply chain for fuel cells. Discussions are also underway to extend the partnership to water electrolysis. The scope of the agreement includes BASF's role in scaling up Membrane Electrode Assembly (MEA) production at Advent‘s planned manufacturing facility in Greece. This partnership enables circularity in key materials for Advent's HT-PEM fuel cells operating at 120 C to 180 C.

Advent Technologies said separately that it has signed a new contract with “a prominent fuel cell manufacturer specializing in truck applications in the East Asian market.” Under the terms of the agreement, Advent will supply High-Temperature Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Membrane Electrode Assemblies to develop advanced fuel cell solutions for trucks. The contract signed has a combined value of $1.1 million.

Hy Stor Energy has sought US Department of Energy funding for the Mississippi Clean Hydrogen Hub (MCHH) as part of the Regional Clean Hydrogen Hub initiative. The MCHH, with “shovel-ready” sites for renewable hydrogen production and storage, aims to establish Mississippi as a major clean hydrogen producer. Hy Stor Energy envisions the MCHH as a multi-billion-dollar project that leverages strategic federal investment of up to $1 billion, enabling the development of purpose-built underground salt dome hydrogen storage networks for cost-effective large-scale, long-duration energy storage.

Vattenfall and actress Cara Delevingne have launched the first-ever “Industrial Emissions Face Mist.” The face mist is made from “wastewater” from a factory using “fossil-free hydrogen.” The water is a byproduct of the Swedish HYBRIT plant, which is a collaboration between Vattenfall, steel manufacturer SSAB, and mining company LKAB.
