Working together with the Technological Institute of Industrial Mathematics (Itmati) and within a consortium of leading companies in the sector, the Galician energy multinational will develop a digital tool to generate hydrogen using the recovery of waste.
This will be achieved through the Zeppelin consortium with the organisation set to explore innovative, efficient and circular technological solutions for the production and storage of green hydrogen.
The consortium has defined objectives of researching a set of new green hydrogen production technologies that are alternatives to electrolysis and that promote the circular economy through the recovery of waste and by-products from different sectors: agri-food, textiles, refineries, water treatment plants.
This aligns with the objective of reducing the energy, economic and environmental costs associated with the current production of hydrogen, as well as promoting a safe, efficient and clean energy.
According to the group, hydrogen production using Zeppelin technologies will offer Spain an annual circular green hydrogen generation potential of around 135,000 tonnes, which would be sufficient production for Spanish industry to meet the objectives set out in the Hydrogen Roadmap, or to satisfy the energy needs of the entire Spanish railway network.
In addition, it will contribute to the policies and objectives in the field of the circular economy by recovering more than 99 million tons of waste and 50 million tons of municipal wastewater.
