A consortium comprising Nouryon, Gasunie and four other partners will receive a $ 12.2-million European grant towards their proposed green hydrogen project in Delfzijl, the Netherlands.

Delfzijl/The Netherlands — The green hydrogen project in Delfzijl is a front-runner among several hydrogen initiatives aimed at cutting carbon emissions. The initiators of the project describe it as a significant milestone in the transition to a more sustainable, circular economy.

The funding is granted by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU), a partnership of the European Commission and industry that supports the development of innovative hydrogen technologies. The 20-MW electrolyzer, to be owned and operated by Nouryon and Gasunie, would be the first of its kind to be implemented in Europe on this scale.

Nouryon, Gasunie Study Expansion of Green Hydrogen Facility

28/05/2019 - The plant which is capable of converting renewable electricity into green hydrogen can be scaled up from 20MWs to 60 MWs. The move will enable the facility to convert 9,000 tonnes of green hydrogen per year and meet the demand for sustainable aviation fuel. read...

The other four partners involved are: McPhy, which will provide its innovative alkaline electrolysis technology to convert renewable electricity into 3,000 tons of green hydrogen per year; Bio MCN, which will combine the hydrogen with CO2 from other processes to produce renewable methanol, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 27,000 tons per year; Denora, a producer of electrodes, a key component of the electrolysis technology; and sustainable energy consultant Hinicio.

Nouryon and Gasunie plan to take a final investment decision for the plant in 2020. In parallel, the two companies are studying options to increase the plant’s electrolyzer capacity from 20 to 60 MW to make green hydrogen to produce sustainable jet fuel in a project with another group of partners.

The project is also supported by an additional $ 5.5 million in subsidies from Waddenfonds, a fund that invests in projects in the northern Netherlands.
