Inovyn to build 100-MW electrolyzer for green H2 in Germany

By Mary Page Bailey |

Ineos Enterprises (London, U.K.), through its subsidiary Inovyn (London, U.K.), announced plans to build a large-scale, 100MW electrolyzer to produce green hydrogen at the Koln site in Germany.

As a first step of the project, INEOS will produce green hydrogen to feed into INEOS green ammonia production – the new application in the future of green fuel production.  As the second largest global chemical product, transitioning towards green ammonia production could lead to reducing almost 1% of global greenhouse gases per year.  This development, by INEOS Nitriles, initiates the transition towards achieving a low-carbon future within the chemical industry.

The project will also look to develop E-Fuels through Power-to-Methanol applications at INEOS Köln site at an industrial scale. Through this process, the development will further decarbonise chemical value chains through the use of carbon capture, in combination with green hydrogen, in order to produce sustainable methanol and its derivatives.

In addition, hydrogen will be made available for further INEOS processes at the site, to chemical park operator Currenta – who will also provide important infrastructure to the project – and to other users in the region, to support the local sustainability agenda.

The green hydrogen project aims to reduce direct and indirect carbon emissions by over 120,000 tons per year, taking sustainability to the next level by progressing towards a complete use of resources.

Hans Casier, CEO INEOS Phenol & INEOS Nitriles said: “This development builds on INEOS leading role in decarbonisation of industry with green ammonia, and methanol production from green hydrogen.  The transition is driven by the growing demand for low-carbon and affordable energy sources.”

Stephan Müller, Energy Commercial Manager INEOS Olefins & Polymers North said: “The green Hydrogen project is an important milestone in achieving a significant carbon footprint reduction at the Koln site and in driving forward our ambitious sustainability agenda towards net-zero.”
