The Ceará authorities envisions the state changing into a worldwide provider of inexperienced hydrogen and claims that its export by means of the Pecém Complex would be the shortest route between South America and Europe and thus the bottom value.
The Complex is a rising industrial and port facility with an export processing zone and established port infrastructure and partnerships, e.g. with the Port of Rotterdam, which might facilitate the export alternatives.
