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. Wit­hin the pro­ject, thys­sen­krupp will be respon­si­ble for deve­lo­ping and buil­ding the 30 MW elec­tro­ly­sis plant. 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, in addi­ti­on to its water elec­tro­ly­sis tech­no­lo­gy, 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.
