Study explores zero-emissions hydrogen shipping

Nouryon, NPRC, and Lenten Scheepvaart have grouped together to explore the feasibility of sailing from Nouryon’s locations in Delfzijl, the Netherlands to Rotterdam on green hydrogen.

The partners will study a new inland vessel, the MS Antonie, that can sail on 100% green hydrogen, produced locally by Nouryon using renewable electricity.

“This is how we create the clean fuel for transporting part of our own products – a sustainable win-win,” said Knut Schwalenerg, Managing Director of Industrial Chemical at Nouryon.
