Germany: Reducing Carbon Footprint Nobian now Offers Certified Green Hydrogen from Chlor-Alkali Electrolysis
Nobian has become the first company in Germany to supply certified green hydrogen from chlor-alkali electrolysis. The produced green hydrogen complies with the leading TÜV Süd CMS 70 Standard and can produce up to 2,700 tons of green hydrogen annually at the firm’s Bitterfeld site in Germany.
Bitterfeld/Germany – Nobian's chlor-alkali plant at the Bitterfeld-Wolfen Chemical Park is the first plant in Germany to successfully supply certified green hydrogen to a leading international customer.
