Scotland to Rotterdam: Plans for LOHC ‘Hydrogen Highway’ announced

The Net Zero Technology Centre (NZTC) and ERM have today (December 13) launched a project to establish a ‘hydrogen highway’ from Scotland to Rotterdam, Netherlands, using a liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC).

Dubbed the Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier for Hydrogen Transport from Scotland (LHyTS) project, the partners seek to demonstrate that methylcyclohexane (MCH) as an LOHC can be successfully transported at scale, providing an export route to the Port of Rotterdam, and other European destinations.

Joining the NZTC and ERM is an international consortium, including Axens, Chiyoda, EnQuest, Koole Terminals, Port of Rotterdam, Scottish Government, Shetland Islands Council, and Storegga.

H2 View understands the partners will work together undertaking engineering studies targeted at developing a pilot project as a precursor to large-scale export.
