“NOTHING IN THE WORLD IS AS POWERFUL
AS AN IDEA WHOSE TIME HAS COME.”

ZERO CO2 FOOTPRINT
The electricity provided for the hydrogen electrolysis is obtained exclusively from renewable sources. These include, in principle, those energy sources and technologies that are defined as renewable in the legislation. These are hydropower, wind power, solar energy, geothermal energy, biomass, landfill gas and sewage gas.
Green hydrogen is produced from just these regenerative energy carriers by means of H2 electrolysis (in this case, hydrogen and oxygen are split into hydrogen and oxygen in an electrolyzer with the aid of electric current) and is distinguished from hydrogen obtained from fossil, thus unsustainable energy carriers such as natural gas. The chemical process for this is not new but safe. Hy2gen AG produces Green Hydrogen in large skales to make it economical usable.
The chemical element of hydrogen is an underestimated energy carrier. First, the substance is not harmful to the environment; in contrast to electricity, it can be stored and can be converted back to power or heat at later times. Regeneratively generated hydrogen is therefore a key source of energy. It can compensate for temporal and spatial fluctuations in the generation of electricity from solar or wind energy, which are unavoidable in terms of weather and energy consumption.
On the other hand, hydrogen can be transported and stored over several paths.
Green Hydrogen can help the world become the number fuel and reach the targets of cutting 80 – 95 % of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
