Under the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Abwasserverband Kempten (Allgäu) (AVKE), Metacon looks to supply a mid-size HHG hydrogen generator at the plant to see fossil-free hydrogen produced from biogas.

Set to run continuously, the company has said its generators can produce approximately 110kg of hydrogen per day at only 1/5 off the fully scaled HHG, which could see capacity of over 500kg per day.

Planned to go into operation in the summer of 2023, the deployment will come as an important step for Metacon as it looks to roll-out its products into the German market.

“We are very proud to become part of the lighthouse project Hydrogen Center Kempten and to have won with AVKE a very experienced and highly professional project partner in Germany in the field of wastewater treatment and biogas production,” said Dr. Christian Hofmann, Managing Director of Metacon.

Hofmann continued, “With successful realisation of the project, we will establish an important contribution to the decentralised production of non-fossil green hydrogen, the cyclic reuse of existing and local resources and place a huge milestone for future clean energy and fuel independence in Europe and beyond.”

Christian Wikner, President and CEO of Metacon, added, “The opportunities with green hydrogen for the energy and fuel transition and our future societies can’t be emphasised enough. We believe the Kempten demonstration collaboration could lead the way for many other similar biogas facilities in Germany and the rest of Europe for evolving towards green hydrogen production with, in many cases, also new local refuelling stations.”
