To be located in Europe as part of an effort to make green hydrogen available on a large-scale, the plant will be based on Hydrogenious’ proprietary technology, which is both an efficient and safe solution for the flexible transport of hydrogen.
For applications in storage plants, hydrogen is chemically bonded to the LOHC material benzyltoluene, a thermal oil. This oil can then be transported under ambient conditions in conventional and existing logistics infrastructures.
Once the load reaches the end user, hydrogen is released from the LOHC in Hydrogenious’ release plants, while the carrier material is reused many more times. Through doing this, the partnership hopes to boost to European hydrogen economy.
Commenting on the partnership, Christina Johansson, CEO of Bilfinger, said, “As long-term partners at equal level, we want to contribute to further advancing the energy transition.
“Green hydrogen plays a crucial role as a sustainable energy source for our customers and for European countries to achieve their climate goals. With the appropriate scaling, Hydrogenious’ LOHC technology can become a game-changing solution for this.”
Dr Daniel Teichmann, founder and CEO of Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies, added, “With Bilfinger, we are gaining our partner of choice for the turnkey construction of large-scale LOHC plants with comprehensive expertise in engineering, installation and maintenance.
“Our partnership positions us perfectly for the market ramp-up in the hydrogen economy. By further improving the competitiveness of our technology through the scale-up and standardisation, all players in the future green hydrogen value chains will benefit.”
US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power
What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?
North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.
What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
