The starting point for the defossilisation of chemical processes is green energy, air and water. So how is it done? The answer is our leading-edge alkaline water electrolysis (AWE) technology, which was developed by thyssenkrupp Uhde Chlorine Engineers on the basis of our chlor-alkali electrolysis. AWE produces clean, green hydrogen by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen using nothing but electrical energy. No carbon is involved and no CO2 emitted if the power is produced from renewable sources. Designed in standard modules, our AWE units can be easily multiplied to realize industrial-scale multi-megawatt H2 installations. We have decades of experience in large-scale industrial electrolysis and our customers benefit from our high capacity modules that are easy to transport and set up with minimal on-site effort.
Besides green hydrogen, our unique portfolio of downstream processes also includes green methanol, green ammonia and green synthetic natural gas (SNG), to name but a few examples. Green hydrogen is a clean energy carrier, feedstock and fuel. Green methanol is a renewable fuel and feedstock for the chemical industry and various manufacturing processes. Green ammonia is a feedstock for the chemical industry, especially fertilzers, various manufacturing processes as well as renewable fuel and a hydrogen carrier. Green SNG captures CO2, can be fed into the gas grid, reconverted into energy as required, or directly used for heating purposes, industrial applications and driving motor vehicles. What all our green technologies have in common is that they reduce greenhouse gas emissions or even reuse CO2.
As a globally operating specialist in chemical processes and plant construction, we can deliver turnkey solutions for sustainable chemical production anywhere in the world. Fully integrated plant concepts exploit hidden synergies and enable highly efficient production processes. All the value chains based on our green technologies are characterized by greater sustainability than conventional processes and can be designed to be completely carbon-neutral.
