Messer to build hydrogen production plant in Germany

By Mary Page Bailey |

Messer Group GmbH (Bad Soden, Germany; www.messergroup.com) has signed a 15-year hydrogen supply contract with RÜTGERS Germany, a subsidiary of Rain Carbon Inc. The industrial gases company will now invest a total of €9 million in a hydrogen production facility at the site of Rain Carbon Inc. in Castrop Rauxel. The company will use the hydrogen in the hydrogenation of industrial resins. Messer will also use the facility to supply other hydrogen customers in the region. The facility will produce hydrogen by means of the steam reforming process, using natural gas as the feedstock. It will have a capacity of 2,700 normal cubic metres per hour. That is the equivalent of approximately 15 tankers per day. Startup of the hydrogen plant – Messer’s first in Germany – is planned for the third quarter 2019.
