Shell this afternoon began operations of Europe’s largest PEM hydrogen electrolyser at its Energy and Chemicals Park in south west Germany, pledging to deliver up to 1,300 tonnes of green hydrogen a year from the trail-blazing facility. The project is being led by the Refhyne European consortium, with support European Commission funding, and will is to use renewable power to convert water into green hydrogen. The plant is the first to use the technology at such a large scale in a refinery, Shell said. “This project demonstrates a new kind of energy future and a model of lower-carbon energy production that can be replicated worldwide,” said Huibert Vigeveno Shell’s downstream director, at the project’s opening ceremony.
