Thyssenkrupp’s Canada plant to produce 11,000 tonnes of hydrogen per year

Thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers, a subsidiary of German industrial giant Thyssenkrupp, announced that it will be constructing a plant capable of producing 11,100 tonnes of hydrogen annually in Quebec, Canada.

The 88-megawatt water electrolysis plant was commissioned by state-owned company Hydro-Québec. Both the hydrogen it creates and the oxygen it launches as a by-product of the electrolysis procedure will be used in another plant to produce biofuels from recurring waste for the transport sector.

For Thyssenkrupp, water electrolysis is the crucial innovation for decarbonizing the commercial sector

“This plant will be among the world’s first and biggest production centers for green hydrogen. Commissioning is scheduled for late 2023,” Thyssenkrupp said in a media declaration.

In the business’s view, water electrolysis is the essential innovation for decarbonizing the commercial sector as, to date, it is the only scaled technology for producing green hydrogen.

“Green raw products just become financially feasible if they are produced and used on a commercial scale, as this is the only manner in which scaling results can be reflected in an improved cost structure,” the release states.

Another European business, Air Liquide, made a recent statement associated with a hydrogen plant in Quebec.

The French firm stated this week that it finished the construction of the world’s largest Proton-Exchange Membrane electrolyzer (PEM) in the city of Bécancour.

The PEM is being provided with 20 MW of renewable energy and is now producing up to 8.2 tonnes daily of low-carbon hydrogen for industrial usage and movement.
