Exploring the enormous potential of hydrogen
About HydrogenHydrogen is a light gas, naturally present and the most abundant element in the universe. Traditionally used in industry, hydrogen is produced via electrolysis, splitting water into its base elements, hydrogen and oxygen. This process also enables manufacturers to recover oxygen or heat. Hydrogen offers a level of flexibility that makes it useful for storing and recovering excess generated energy, especially energy from renewable sources, and acts as a buffer to match supply with demand. It can also be used to generate energy, for example via fuel cells that power hybrid vehicles or autonomous energy production systems. The heat generated during the hydrogen production process can also be used to heat buildings.
ENGIE and YaraENGIE and Yara, one of the world’s leading crop nutrition companies, agreed on February 5, 2019 to carry out a feasibility study with the goal of designing a green hydrogen plant that would be integrated with Yara’s existing ammonia plant in Western Australia’s Pilbara. Ammonia is a key ingredient in fertilisers. The goal is to transform the plant from one that relies completely on natural gas for hydrogen to one where a significant share of the hydrogen comes from renewable power. The resulting drop in CO2 emissions from the process would be significant. The Pilbara has plenty of sun, and plenty of water – key ingredients to producing renewable hydrogen. ENGIE and Yara have the complementary expertise and experience to take on such a complex project, but the key ingredient in this venture is their mutual commitment to a healthier planet and a sustainable future.
