Air Products has announced a pilot project to generate Europe’s first Guarantees of Origin (GO) for sustainable, renewable hydrogen produced in The Netherlands, under the Certif Hy scheme.

Hattingen/Germany; Rotterdam/The Netherlands — The Guarantess of Origin are being sought for hydrogen produced at the Rotterdam chloralkaline electrolyser plants of Nouryon (formerly Akzo Nobel Specialty Chemicals), which uses wind power as part of its energy mix. This renewable power is sourced from the recently completed Krammer and Bouwdokken windfarms in The Netherlands. Once produced, the hydrogen is conditioned by the supplier before taking into its established pipeline in Rotterdam for commercial use.

As part of the pilot project, two of the company's hydrogen customers in the mobility sector will receive guarantess for renewable hydrogen. The first is H2 Mobility Deutschland, an organisation operating a network of hydrogen fuelling stations in Germany. The second is London’s integrated transport authority, Transport for London, which operates hydrogen buses across the United Kingdom’s capital.

The project is part of Certif Hy, an initiative launching the first European-wide GO scheme for low carbon and renewable hydrogen. Transferable across the continent, GOs are intended to create an innovative, transparent hydrogen market. The pilot program will initially run until mid-2019. It is funded by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCHJU), a partnership between the European Commission and the hydrogen industry and research community.
