In the chemical industry hydrogen plays a major role in the production of fertilizers such as ammonia and urea and is used as a desulfurization agent in oil refineries. It is also needed for all syngas routes to e.g. methanol and thus to gasoline. thyssenkrupp has proprietary world-leading technologies in all these fields.
Transition to renewable hydrogen
Today four percent of the world’s hydrogen consumption already originates from electrolysis plants, mainly chlor-alkali installations. Dramatic changes are expected in the future as the need to avoid carbon dioxide emissions increases. Alongside renewable hydrogen production via water electrolysis, the move towards carbon dioxide as a feedstock will change the way chemicals are produced today.
