The three projects include H2Giga, H2Mare and TransHyDE – all of which aim to progress a different aspect of hydrogen production.

World first: thyssenkrupp Steel launch tests to inject hydrogen into steelmaking process

Headed by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), thyssenkrupp is involved in each of the projects with hopes that the outcome of the research could help achieve the company’s own ambitions in relation to hydrogen production.

The grioup intends to implement each of the technologies from the projects into its own operations to help develop the hydrogen value chain.

This involves series manufacturing of large-scale water electrolysers (H2Giga), the production of synthetic fuels, green ammonia, green methanol and synthetic methane at sea (H2Mare), as well as hydrogen transport and conversion technologies such as ammonia cracking (TransHyDE).

Martina Merz, Chairwoman of the Executive Board at thyssenkrupp, said, “With its comprehensive technology portfolio for both completely green value chains and the recycling of emissions in closed-loop systems, thyssenkrupp can represent the entire value chain for green chemicals.

“Bringing together this strength of our innovation-driven long-standing company with scientific research in the hydrogen flagship projects is the recipe for success for the implementation of the National Hydrogen Strategy and for keeping Germany’s technology leadership competitive internationally.”

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.
