Poland is actively exploring the possibility of constructing a hydrogen pipeline along the Baltic Sea and implementing carbon dioxide (CO2) storage in salt caverns as part of its state strategy for energy development.
APA Group, a major energy infrastructure company, has successfully completed testing to determine the feasibility of converting a section of its Parmelia Gas Pipeline in Western Australia for hydrogen transportation.
Frontier Energy and Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) have signed a Collaboration Agreement to accelerate the integration of green hydrogen into the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline (DBNGP). The DBNGP is a crucial gas pipeline connecting the North West Shelf gas fields to markets in South West Western Australia.
Panama is positioning itself as a leader in the global green hydrogen industry with its newly unveiled National Strategy for Green Hydrogen and Derivatives (ENHIVE).
Fluxys Belgium, an infrastructure company, has partnered with Sweco, a European engineering consultancy, to develop a pipeline network for transporting hydrogen and CO2.
The European Union is set to provide enormous subsidies for a proposed hydrogen pipeline that would stretch from Bavaria, through Austria and Italy, to North Africa.
Fisher German, a leading infrastructure consultancy, has won a contract to provide land services and initial consultation for the East Coast Hydrogen Pipeline (ECHP), a major hydrogen cluster scheme that will help the UK achieve its net-zero targets.
The state government of Baden-Württemberg has approved the further development of the Baden-Württemberg hydrogen roadmap, which includes the establishment of the first pipeline connections to the German and European hydrogen network by 2030.
Italy, Germany, and Austria have expressed their full political support for the construction of the Southern Hydrogen Corridor, a 3,300 km gas pipeline connecting North Africa to Europe.
“The holy grail” of the energy future – hydrogen may soon have a very serious problem, which, if not solved quickly, will bring the whole “hydrogen revolution” to a halt for us. This is caused by the already absolute certainty that hydrogen in the Earth’s atmosphere reacts with tropospheric hydroxyl (OH) radicals. Therefore, its uncontrolled emission into the atmosphere disturbs the distribution and holds dangerously the decomposition of methane, ozone or water vapour, which can lead us, in the short term, to a possible climate cataclysm.
