German govt to support hydrogen imports from MENA region

The German government has agreed to facilitate the connection between local hydrogen off-takers and project developer H2-Industries Inc, which has unveiled plans for a couple of waste-to-hydrogen plants in the MENA region.

Germany’s Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, Robert Habeck, has said so after a meeting at an energy conference in Jordan with Michael Stusch, the chief executive of H2-Industries.

“The meeting initiated a highly productive conversation regarding the future energy relationship between the Middle East, North Africa and Europe focusing on the potential of green hydrogen, energy efficiency, innovation and renewable energy,” a company statement says. At the event, ministers and other participants have discussed the importance of establishing international energy partnerships to facilitate the importation of hydrogen into Europe.

Under its ​​REPowerEU Plan, the European Commission has set a target of 10 million tonnes of domestic green hydrogen production and 10 million tonnes of green hydrogen imports by 2030.

H2-Industries has so far announced development plans for waste-to-hydrogen projects in Oman and Egypt. The company said that from 2030, its facilities in the MENA region will be able to produce up to 2 million tonnes per year of clean hydrogen.
