The economic feasibility of transportation of hydrogen produced at sites where low-cost electricity is available, over long distances to the consumer areas in Europe is the main concern of this study. This is made possible using new hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions in organic liquid media. The technoeconomical comparison of the benzene and toluene based systems indicates an economic advantage for the former medium. In cold regions, the latter medium might escape the problem of solidification. It also offers a lower level of pollution risk.
