German metal organizations, Thyssenkrupp Metal and HKM, as well as the Port of Rotterdam, are jointly investigating starting off global provide chains for hydrogen.
In the study course of their transformation in direction of local climate-neutral metal building, Thyssenkrupp Metal and HKM will call for massive and expanding quantities of hydrogen to make metal with no coal.
For decades, the two organizations have been importing coal, iron ore and other raw components by means of their personal terminal in Rotterdam, working with inland barges as well as rail to transport it to their blast furnaces in Duisburg.
The partners will explore hydrogen import alternatives by means of Rotterdam as well as a possible pipeline corridor among Rotterdam and Thyssenkrupp Steel’s and HKM’s metal sites in Duisburg. The partnership may perhaps serve as a framework for additional initiatives and aims at supporting existing initiatives and initiatives in which the partners are
