Brief pro­file

The Indus­tri­al Solu­tions busi­ness area of thyssenk­rupp is a lead­ing part­ner for the engi­neer­ing, con­struc­tion and ser­vice of indus­tri­al plants and sys­tems. Based on more than 200 years of engi­neer­ing expe­ri­ence we sup­ply tai­lored, turnkey plants and com­po­nents for cus­tomers in the chem­i­cal, fer­tilis­er, cement, min­ing and steel industries.

Project role

Deal­ing with lim­it­ed resources and ener­gy is a glob­al chal­lenge and one to which thyssenk­rupp Indus­tri­al Solu­tions is work­ing all the time to find solu­tions. A key tech­nol­o­gy for the inte­gra­tion of renew­able ener­gies is the elec­trol­y­sis of water. Based on world-lead­ing elec­trol­y­sis tech­nolo­gies, experts from thyssenk­rupp Uhde Chlo­rine Engi­neers have devel­oped a solu­tion that makes the indus­tri­al-scale pro­duc­tion of hydro­gen from elec­tric­i­ty com­mer­cial­ly attrac­tive. Hydro­gen is not only a clean ener­gy car­ri­er, be it for long-term ener­gy stor­age in the gas grid, or for clean fuels: if pro­duced from renew­able ener­gies, it can make the pro­duc­tion of impor­tant base chem­i­cals sus­tain­able. In addi­tion, in con­junc­tion with oth­er project part­ners, the com­pa­ny will pre­pare a con­cep­tu­al design study for man­u­fac­tur­ing methanol from CO2 emis­sions gen­er­at­ed by a cement plant and hydro­gen from elec­trol­y­sis. This is based on a process for methanol man­u­fac­ture devel­oped by thyssenk­rupp that requires only CO2 as a car­bon source. To har­ness the CO2 from the cement pro­duc­tion process, thyssenkrupp’s fur­ther con­tri­bu­tion will be the oxy­fu­el process, which makes for more effi­cient com­bus­tion dur­ing which high­ly con­cen­trat­ed CO2 is produced.



Long-term vision

As the start­ing point for var­i­ous sus­tain­able val­ue chains, water elec­trol­y­sis by thyssenk­rupp can help to make today’s car­bon-based indus­try slow­ly but sure­ly more cli­mate-friend­ly. Green hydro­gen, as a clean, CO2-free start­ing mate­r­i­al, can be used here in many dif­fer­ent ways: for ener­gy stor­age, in mobil­i­ty and to pro­duce sus­tain­able chem­i­cals such asam­mo­nia and methanol, itself a base mate­r­i­al for numer­ous oth­er prod­ucts. If the indus­tri­al by-prod­uct CO2 is used in this process as a raw mate­r­i­al, this rep­re­sents a fur­ther impor­tant con­tri­bu­tion to decar­bon­i­sa­tion.
