Thyssenkrupp Inks NA Green Hydrogen Plant Contracts (Ind. Report)
Thyssenkrupp
Date: 2021-04-28
Essen, Germany-headquartered industrial conglomerate Thyssenkrupp AG is reporting two EPC contracts to construct what it says will be record-size commercial green hydrogen production facilities in North America. One was awarded this month at a Louisiana chemical plant and a larger one in January at a Quebec greenfield site.

The German firm will construct a 20-MW alkaline water electrolysis plant for Deerfield, Illinois-based hydrogen and nitrogen products specialist CF Industries' ammonia production complex in Donaldsonville, La.. The plant will produce 20,000 tpy of green hydrogen that will be integrated into its existing ammonia production. ÔÇťAmmonia is a critical enabler for storage and transport of hydrogen and can also be used as a carbon-free fuel, according to CF Industries. Construction is slated to get underway in the second half of this year for completion and commissioning in 2023.

As previously reported, Thyssenkrupp has also contracted with Canadian utility Hydro Quebec to design a $200 million, 88-MW water electrolysis plant near Montreal that will produce 11,100 metric tpy of green hydrogen.

Thyssenkrupp Touts Green Hydrogen (Green Hydrogen, Biofuel)
Thyssenkrupp
Date: 2021-01-20
Essen-based German steel producer Thyssenkrupp reports its subsidiary Uhde Chlorine Engineers was awarded an engineering contract for its first green hydrogen project and installation of an 88 MW water electrolysis plant in Varennes, Quebec, for Hydro-Quebec.

After a late 2023 startup, the plant would be "one of the world's first and biggest production facilities for green hydrogen" at 11,100 metric tpy.

Both the hydrogen and the oxygen, produced as a by-product in the electrolysis process, would be used in a biofuel plant to produce biofuels from residual waste for the transport sector, the release noted.

Greenergy Investing in Adv. Biofuels Project (Advanced Biofuel)
Greenergy
Date: 2021-01-20
In the UK, London-based biodiesel producer Greenergy has announced an investment in advanced biofuels. Using a combination of existing technologies, the project will create low-carbon fuels from waste tyre feedstock.

The project, which is at the Front End Engineering Design stage, will used pyrolysis and hydrotreating technologies to convert 300 tpd of shredded waste tyres into renewable drop-in advanced biofuels that can be used in diesel and petrol and qualify as development fuels under the UK's Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation. The plant will also have the capability to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) when fully operational in 2025.

The conceptual design was developed in Canada by Green Tire Technology Ltd then implemented in the UK in partnership with Greenergy. The project will use ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions' advanced thermal treatment technology and Haldor Topsoe's HydroFlex™ renewable fuels technology.

ThyssenKrupp, RWE Partnering on Climate Neutral Steel (Int'l. Report)
ThyssenKrupp, RWE
Date: 2020-06-15
German industrial giants and major carbon emitters RWE and Duisburg-based steelmaker ThyssenKrupp Steel report they are joining forces with a view to reducing steel-making carbon emissions.The two firms have agreed to work together towards "a longer-term green hydrogen partnership to reduce CO2 emissions from steel production and to eventually reach 'carbon-neutral' steel production by mid 2020's" according to a ThyssenKrupp release.

According to ThyssenKrupp , hydrogen required for iron production is to be produced by electrolysis, in which water is broken down into hydrogen and oxygen. The two companies agree that only electricity from renewable sources should be used to operate the electrolysers.

To that end, RWE plans to develop 100 MW electrolysis capability that could supply green hydrogen at its power plant site in Lingen.
