12.12.2023 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

December 12, 2023 [Bunkerspot]- Industry stakeholders from Belgium and Houston have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will see them cooperate on the energy transition.


The six partners involved are the Center for Houston’s Future, Waterstofnet, Port Houston, the Port of Antwerp-Bruges, Exmar, and the Blue Sky Maritime Coalition. Under the MoU, the signing of which was overseen by Belgian Prime Minister Alexander de Croo in Houston yesterday (10 December), the partners have agreed to work together on a green shipping corridor, as well as an import-export coalition for renewable and low-carbon molecules and the exchange of best practices, knowledge, and research.

‘We look forward to continuing to work with Belgium and other stakeholders as we transition to becoming a carbon-neutral facility by 2050,’ the Port of Houston said in a social media post yesterday.

As previously reported, green corridors are one element of the US port’s carbon neutrality action plan. The Belgian port is also aiming to become climate neutral by 2050. In 2021, the Port of Antwerp (as it was formerly known) and the Port of Montreal signed a cooperation agreement to support the creation of the first green shipping corridor in the North Atlantic.
