Italy and Morocco to Develop Green Hydrogen Pipeline
The financing of a feasibility study to build a pipeline for green hydrogen produced in Morocco has been given the green light by the Italian government.


The pipeline will streamline the transportation of the gas from Morocco to the port of Trieste in northeastern Italy.

Emphasising the project’s significance, Italian Deputy Debora Serracchiani of the Democratic Party said: “One of these programs for the Mattei plan, which aims to analyse and strengthen the green hydrogen supply chain between Morocco and Trieste, was accepted.

“This corridor is integrated into the Hydrogen Valley in the north of the Adriatic Sea, which is the cross-border project born from the agreement concluded between the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Croatia and Slovenia.”

She added: “Thanks to green hydrogen, Morocco has become one of the most important points of departure in the world,” and noted the country’s commitment to supporting energy plans that European countries such as Germany and the Netherlands have invested in.

For Italy, the Green Corridor signifies not only a step in the right direction where sustainable energy is concerned, but also an opportunity to strengthen commercial ties with Morocco.

With hopes to contribute to a greener and more integrated energy strategy at the European level, the project will foster synergies between the port and intermodal logistics systems of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region.
