Aker, Statkraft Partner on Indian, Brazilian Green Hydrogen (Int'l.)
Aker Clean Hydrogen, Statkraft,SOWITEC
Date: 2022-04-29
Lysaker, Norway-headquartered integrated hydrogen, ammonia, and methanol producer Aker Clean Hydrogen reports it is collaborating with renewable energy developers Statkraft and SOWITEC to explore green hydrogen and ammonia production opportunities in India and Brazil's steel and fertilizer sectors. The collaboration aims to use green hydrogen as a substitute for grey hydrogen, fossil-fuel-based hydrogen, coal, and natural gas as feedstocks in the steel and fertilizer industries.

The collaboration will undertake a large-scale hybrid project, merging renewable power generation and hydrogen and ammonia production for the fertilizer sector in Brazil -- the world's fourth-largest consumer of fertilizer. The collaboration will work toward nullifying the country's agricultural dependency on imported grey ammonia by producing green ammonia locally. The project is slated to be operational by 2027.

India is the world's second-largest grey hydrogen consumer at roughly 7 million tpy -- expected to grow to 12 million tpy by 2030 jumping to 28 million tpy by 2050.

According to Bloomberg NEF, the global steel industry will need an investment of $278 billion, in addition to using green hydrogen technologies to eliminate GHG emissions by 2050. (Source: Aker Clean Hydrogen, Website, PR, 28 April, 2022) Contact: Aker Clean Hydrogen,,; SOWITEC,; Statkraft,

Shell, Aker Ink Norwegian Blue-Hydrogen MoU (Int'l. Report)
Shell, Aker Clean Hydrogen
Date: 2021-07-21
Royal Dutch Shell plc is reporting a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Lysaker, Norway-based Aker Clean Hydrogen and CapeOmega to explore the development of a large-scale blue hydrogen at Aukra on the west coast of Norway.

The facility will use the steam methane reforming method to break natural gas into hydrogen and carbon dioxide which will be captured and stored permanently. Notably, hydrogen is considered clean when produced from natural gas.

The facility, which is expected to become a major supplier of alternative fuels for the marine shipping industry, fits with the Norwegian government's strategy to develop hydrogen and create long-term value from the country's energy resources.

"Hydrogen will play a vital role to accelerate decarbonisation. It has the potential to close as much as 50 percent of the gap in CO2 emissions required to achieve the 2-degree scenario, by replacing fossil feed-stock and fuel through clean hydrogen and ammonia production and thus reducing the carbon footprint of industrial companies and in the shipping sector", according to the Aker Clean Hysdrogen website.

Shell aims to become a net-zero emission business by 2050. (Source: Aker Clean Hydeogen, PR, Website, July, 2021) Contact: Royal Dutch Shell, Aker Clean Hydrogen,,
