Our philosophy

Ambitious Decarbonisation Plans including Hydrogen Hub of Europe

  • The port is taking a leading role in decarbonising the port industrial complex, 49% reduced in 2030, zero carbon in 2050​
  • Hydrogen is one of the major components of the second step to find new energy systems​
  • Rotterdam expects the hydrogen demand to grow from 0.4mtpa today to 20Mtpa in 2050​
  • 80-90% of that wil arrive from overseas by ship and hence Rotterdam is assisting the development of terminals to allow import of Hydrogen in whichever form is chosen​
  • In this way Rotterdam will become the Hydrogen Hub of Europe​
