Founded in 2018 in Montreal, Canada and is 100% owned by Hy2gen AG, Germany.
Its business purpose is developing and operating companies (>650 MW) producing green hydrogen and hydrogen-based feedstock such as oxygen, bio-methanol and bio-methane. Green hydrogen produced by Hy2gen AG by means of Alkaline electrolysis or polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM).

Canada is an ideal location for establishing the first Hy2gen’s carbon free hydrogen productions in North America due to the facts that the central and local governments strongly committed to the reduction of greenhouse gases by supporting hydrogen business, carbon free mobility and carbon reduction in the industrial sector. Additionally, Québec offers 100% green energy resulting from hydro power at the required level and the production plants are suitable for Canadian and North America markets.

I’m not concerned with what has been done.
I’m interested in what needs to be done.“

– Marie Curie (1867-1934)



CO2-free  production enables companies to save costs on CO2-fees and certificates. Carbon free hydrogen enables companies to support fight against climate change without additional investment needs.


Canada faces a challenge in finding significant emissions reduction opportunities. As its electricity supply is already largely decarbonised, the transportation sector must supply a substantial proportion of emissions cuts.

Hydrogen will have a key role to play in decarbonising transportation. There are practical limits on the use of electricity and biofuel, so fuel cell vehicles are considered the best solution for at least 50% of Canada’s passenger transportation.



Four large scale projects under development, additional projects ramping up:




 At Varennes, a 86 MW electrolysis production plant for H2and O2as feedstock for a production of bio-fuels.
– Start of production in 2022 –



 At Varennes, a 120 MW electrolysis production plant for H2and bio-methanol for mobility  sector and bio-methane for international markets.
– Start of production in 2022 –



At East Montreal, 85 MW electrolysis production plant for H2and O2for CO2 capture and producing bio-proteins.
– Start of production in 2024 –



At Becancour, 240 MW electrolysis production plant for green H2 production for fertilizers (urea/ammonia).
– Start of production is in 2025 –

Hy2gen AG, which specializes in green hydrogen production, welcomes Trafigura as its new shareholder

Hy2gen AG, a start-up from the Stuttgart region created to build green hydrogen production facilities, has completed a further financing round. Trafigura, a market leader in the global commodities industry has become a shareholder and joined the board of the company. The new investment will enhance Hy2gen AG’s business development capabilities and support the development of new production sites.

Joint Venture

Joint Venture

Québec City, Québec, Canada, November 20, 2019 – Greenfield Global Inc., Canada’s largest ethanol producer, and Hy2gen Canada, the first mover for commercial production and distribution of green hydrogen, announced today their intention to create a joint venture that will develop and operate a facility in Varennes (Québec) for industrial-scale production of green hydrogen and other zero-carbon energy products. The companies are completing conditions and terms with Greenfield Global and H2yGen each owning 50 percent, and its governance will be composed of representatives from both companies.

Une entreprise européenne souhaite construire une centrale de production industrielle d’hydrogène à Varennes, un projet qui risque d’attirer l’attention de Québec où le gouvernement a débloqué des fonds l’an dernier pour développer la filière.
