Evos, Hydrogenious and Port of Amsterdam have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop large-scale hydrogen import facilities at the European port.
The project will comprise a liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) dehydrogenation plant with a final release capacity of up to 100-500 tonnes of hydrogen per day, along with related storage and handling facilities, with volumes of up to 1m tonnes a year. Delivery to off-takers is scheduled from 2028.
A completed feasibility study found that LOHC technology is “a compelling solution”, compatible with existing infrastructure.
The liquid organic hydrogen carrier used by Hydrogenious, thermal oil benzyl toluene (LOHC-BT), is well established in the industry as a heat transfer medium and has ideal properties for safe handling in ports. After dehydrogenation, it can be reused many hundreds of times to bind hydrogen.
