ZERO CO2 FOOTPRINT
Green hydrogen offers better ways to decarbonise a range of hard-to-abate sectors – including long-haul transport, chemicals, and even food processing– where it is proving difficult to significantly reduce emissions. It can also help improve air quality and strengthen energy security.
Technologies already available today enable green hydrogen to produce, store, move and use energy in different ways. Its production is carbon free by using 100% renewable energies instead of fossil resources. It can be transported as a pressurised gas or in liquid form by pipelines, ships or trucks, much like liquefied natural gas (LNG). It can be transformed into electricity and methane to feed industry and power houses, and into fuels for cars, trucks, ships and planes. Hydrogen and hydrogen- based fuels can transport energy from renewables over long distances – from regions with abundant renewable resources to energy-hungry clients thousands of kilometres away.
Green hydrogen is produced from the regenerative energy carriers by the safe means of water electrolysis (in this case, the compound H2O molecule is split into its component hydrogen and oxygen in an electrolyser with the help of electric current). The electricity provided for the hydrogen electrolysis is obtained exclusively from renewable sources (i.e. hydropower, wind power, solar energy, geothermal energy, biomass, landfill gas and sewage gas). Hy2gen AG produces green hydrogen in large scales to address the increasing commercial demands.
Green hydrogen produced by Hy2gen AG by means of Alkaline electrolysis or polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM).
Using green hydrogen produces no greenhouse gases, particulates, sulphur oxides or ground level ozone
