The solution is to build a large scale project in the Suez Canal’s economic zone, which can develop green hydrogen fuel in order to accelerate the supply of green fuels and the global transformation to net-zero shipping.

Result

The recent Green Fuel Production project in Egypt aims to produce 3 million tonnes of green fuel per year by 2031. This project is expected to yield 1.5 billion USD of FDI, which will grow steadily to reach 15 billion USD by 2031 creating more than 100.000 job opportunities.
