Decarbonizing our society is a huge task, but there are solutions available that offer a lot of leverage. If we really want to make our value chains sustainable and minimize CO2 and other greenhouse gases, we have to start at the very beginning: energy production has to become renewable. After that, it is all about how to utilize green energy – and how to cope with CO2 emissions.
thyssenkrupp offers a quite unique set of solutions which can enable these green value chains. It starts with our alkaline water electrolysis, which produces green hydrogen with high efficiency.
Green hydrogen, the clean starting point for decarbonization and green chemicals
Our high-efficiency water electrolysis produces hydrogen by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen, using only electrical energy. No carbon involved, no CO2 emitted. Designed in standard modules of 10-20 MW, they easily add up to enable large installations needed for industrial scale applications.
And with industrial scale, we have a track record – plus a unique portfolio of downstream processes: green ammonia, methanol, SNG, fertilizers, and more. thyssenkrupp can offer green technologies and complete project execution from a single source.
Modular water electrolysis for industrial applications – ready to deliver!
With our customers in mind, we designed our water electrolysis in standardized modules of 10-20MW. This means: easy transport and setup, minimized on-site effort. By adding up the modules, projects up to several hundred Megawatts can be realized. Thanks to our established supply chain of 1 GW per year, we are perfect partners for industrial scale projects. Take a look at how easy a 100 MW plant can be!
Leading edge electrolysis technology – well-proven performance
The alkaline water electrolysis was developed on the basis of our world-leading chlor-alkali electrolysis by thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers. With decades of experience in industrial large-scale electrolysis, the alkaline water electrolysis (AWE) was thoroughly designed and tested. Right now, it shows its excellent performance in the Carbon2Chem® project, where steel mill off gases are converted to valuable chemicals using green hydrogen. How our water electrolysis works?
