Green Industrial Hydrogen via steam electrolysis

Project description

Renewable hydrogen production at a steel plant

Within the EU-funded GrInHy2.0 project, a demonstration plant will showcase the hydrogen production via steam electrolysis using waste heat from an iron-and-steel factory. Project partners Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH, Salzgitter Mannesmann Forschung GmbH, Sunfire GmbH, Paul Wurth S.A. Tenova SpA, and French research centre CEA are constructing and integrating the world’s most powerful high-temperature electrolyser based on solid oxide electrolysis cells for the energy-efficient production of green hydrogen. GrInHy2.0 marks the first implementation of a high-temperature electrolyser with a nominal power input of 720 kilowatt in an industrial environment. The hydrogen will be used for annealing processes as a substitute for hydrogen produced from natural gas. Furthermore, the project will provide answers on CO2 avoidance in the European steel industry.
