Hydrogen transport


Existing natural gas pipelines can be used to transport the green hydrogen to the location of consumption or storage. This does not just make sense from an economic point of view; experience shows that such a measure is also more socially acceptable, as only minor interventions in the landscape are needed.

Like natural gas, hydrogen is a combustible gas that can be handled very safely. This is demonstrated, for example, by a hydrogen pipeline system in the Rhine-Ruhr region with a length of 240 kilometres, which has been operated safely for decades.
