The Dutch State will support Air Liquide’s large-scale renewable hydrogen projects, a decision that is expected to ‘significantly’ contribute to the decarbonisation of the Dutch and neighbouring countries’ industry.
Announced yesterday (21st Dec), the support will be provided through the Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI) Hy2Use programme – a subsidy initiative that the Dutch Enterprise Agency carries out on behalf of the Ministry of Economic Affairs & Climate.
The projects include ELYgator (located in Terneuzen, the Netherlands) and CurtHyl (located at the Maasvlakte 2 conversion park in Rotterdam, the Netherlands), which – combined – will produce a total of around 30,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year without generating any carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
