HyDelta 2_D7B.3 Cost analysis and comparison of different hydrogen carrier import chains and expected cost development

One of the central transitions that is part of our global efforts to transition to at least net zero, are the energy transition and the raw material transition. The energy transition describes the change in the global primary energy supply and demand from fossil-based energy to renewable energy. The raw material transition, or the transition towards a circular use of materials and fuels, aims to change our linear take-make-waste economy into an economy that does not deplete our planet earth. Both these transitions are essential, and as the focus of this research encompasses hydrogen, ammonia and methanol, both the energy transition and the transition to a decarbonized (chemical) commodities industry are at the heart of the study that lies in front of you.
