Green hydrogen plays a crucial role in making our economy climate-neutral – whether as a storage medium for renewable energies, as a raw material for industrial processes or as a substitute for fossil fuels. At the same time, the necessary transformation presents companies with major challenges. For example, with regard to reliable and efficient technologies for the production of hydrogen or the infrastructure for its production, storage, distribution and use.
This is where our scientists come in. We are working on the industrialization of electrolysis and are focusing on materials and processes for the electrochemical production, use and storage of green hydrogen: On the one hand, we design and build electrolysers and fuel cells. On the other hand, we develop processes for the conversion and reconversion of hydrogen into chemical storage systems such as ammonia and methanol. We also provide support in the evaluation of systems and locations where hydrogen is to be used.
