Water electrolysis for green hydrogen, energy storage and sustainable chemicals

Renewable energy is used optimally if every single watt produced can be consumed or stored. With industrial-scale water electrolysis, hydrogen as a clean energy carrier can be produced by simply splitting water. Hydrogen can be stored and reconverted into energy, or directly used to feed it into:

  • the gas grid
  • chemical production (ammonia, methanol, synthetic natural gas, ...)
  • fuel cell vehicles

thyssenkrupp offers complete value chains for green hydrogen, energy storage and sustainable chemicals.

Efficient water electrolysis for green hydrogen and sustainable chemicals

Current discussions on water electrolysis include mainly two different methods – alkaline water electrolysis and PEM water electrolysis. We are specialized on the water electrolysis process. With our technology, high-purity hydrogen and oxygen can be generated using a zero-gap structure and high-performance membrane. The results:

  • Low CAPEX and low OPEX

  • High flexibility

  • Robust technology

  • High gas purity

  • Modular system for easy deployment

Power-to-X for energy transition and decarbonization

Green hydrogen as clean starting point for green chemicals: thyssenkrupp can deliver complete value chains from a single source. Starting with our high-end, large scale water electrolysis, further downstream processes can be added. For example green ammonia can be used as completely CO2-free base chemical or energy carrier. If a carbon source is at hand (CO or CO2), then you can produce for example methanol as fuel additive or replacement fuel, or fertilizers with a reduced carbon footprint. Read more here!

Power-to-X for energy transition and decarbonization, Hydrogen value chains, sector coupling, renewable energy

The water electrolysis process is in use around the world for several decades, mainly in installations serving small-volume industries such as glass making, organic hydrogenation, generator cooling applications etc. In the fertilizer industry it was always an option when cheap electricity was available and there were no other sources of hydrogen.

As in the future the focus will be more on integrating renewable energy sources in a cross-sector approach, hydrogen will have a very important role to play – hence the need for improved power to hydrogen technology.
