  • EDF and ZeroWaste cooperate to build 80,000 tonnes of green hydrogen in Egypt.
  • The project will be carried out in stages, aiming to produce hydrogen by 2030.

EDF and Zero waste signed a framework agreement with an organization in Egypt to build a facility in the Suez Canal Zone to produce 80,000 tonnes of green hydrogen and derivatives annually by 2030.

During the COP27 meeting in Sharm El-Sheikh, the agreement was signed with Egypt’s Ministry of Electricity, the General Authority for Suez Canal Economic Zone (SCZONE), and the Infrastructure and Utilities Sub Fund of The Sovereign Fund of Egypt (TSFE), EDF reported on Friday.

The two are preparing to construct a 700 MW electrolysis facility that uses 2 GW of solar and wind energy to produce green hydrogen and ammonia. The project will be carried out in stages, aiming to produce 80,000 tonnes of green hydrogen by 2030.

The project should be able to produce 22,000 tonnes of green hydrogen yearly for the synthesis of ammonia in the first phase by 2026. The transportation, fertilizer, and power generation sectors will be decarbonized using green fuel.

The partners are already engaged in conceptual design work for the project. Teams are also being organized to tackle problems, including shared amenities, grid connection, and land reservations.

The arrangement is the most recent in a string of significant hydrogen agreements Egypt recently reached and came after the signing of a memorandum of understanding by EDF Renewables and ZeroWaste in April.
