Asahi Kasei Europe has started a demonstration project for the production of green hydrogen at the Hydrogen Competence Center h2herten in Herten, Germany. The project will transform simulated electric power from wind energy into hydrogen and contribute to the development of a green hydrogen production system. Hydrogen is a focus of increasing interest in recent years, not only in the field of energy storage (power-to-gas) but also as an important component of alternative fuels for automobiles (power-to-fuel). Asahi Kasei is intensifying its activities in the field of hydrogen production in Europe. The Japanese technology company is a leading supplier of chlor-alkali electrolysis systems, which are used in 126 production sites in 26 countries worldwide. Based on this technology, the company developed an alkaline-water electrolysis system which is suitable for use with fluctuating power input such as from renewable energy sources. The highly efficient system offers scalability up to 10 MW, allowing the customer to produce a large quantity of hydrogen with a single unit.
