INEOS & Hydrogen

Rafnes & Green Hydrogen

INEOS’ business, INOVYN, is planning to develop a new clean hydrogen supply hub at its chemical manufacturing site in Rafnes, Norway.

It wants to produce enough additional clean hydrogen each day to fuel up to 400 Norwegian buses or 1,600 taxis and support the country’s drive to save more greenhouse gases than it generates by 2040.

The remaining hydrogen will be used as a clean fuel by INEOS to reduce its own carbon footprint.

The hydrogen, which will cut CO2 emissions by at least 22,000 tonnes a year, will be produced through the electrolysis of water.

The proposed 20MW water electrolyser, which splits water into hydrogen and oxygen, will be powered by zero carbon electricity.

Ongoing discussions are taking place to establish a network of hydrogen refuelling stations in Norway to provide buses, trucks and taxis with a steady supply of clean, green hydrogen.

The EU and national governments have set clear targets for the widespread use of hydrogen in Europe by 2030.

“With INOVYN’s experience in electrolysis technology and our growing portfolio of hydrogen projects, using clean hydrogen to accelerate decarbonisation of energy will drive progress towards a carbon-free future,” said CEO Geir Tuft.

Scotland is powering ahead with its own drive to become net zero by 2045 – and carbon capture and storage and hydrogen are at the heart of its strategy.

Hydrogen - Fuel of the Future

Hydrogen is being championed as the fuel of the future. And the call for change is no longer just coming from industry which has been using it in vast quantities for more than 40 years. 
It produces zero emissions when burned as a fuel, it can be more efficient than fossil fuels and is the most abundant element in the universe. It even powers the sun.
