Located on one of the most strategically important shipping routes in the world, it is hoped the project will power Egypt’s domestic energy transition to allow the country to become an exporter of clean hydrogen.

The project anticipates a production capacity of 300,000 tonnes of green hydrogen annually, disposing of four million tonnes of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) per year.

H2 View understands, H2-Industries plans to use a fleet of hydrogen-powered waste trucks transport the MSW to the waste-to-hydrogen production site.

Michael Stusch, CEO of H2-Industries, said, “This project has the double benefit of creating valuable clean hydrogen while addressing the important issue of waste management by using organic waste, including plastic waste.

“This is just the first of three international projects where governments, around the globe, realise that organic waste and especially plastic waste, if treated correctly, can be a valuable asset and used to generate significant amounts of clean energy with our project in East Port Said.”

H2-Industries will conduct feasibility studies ahead of the final contracts for the project, planned at COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt in November 2022.

North American Hydrogen Summit  

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?

If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
