Challenge

Time is running out to achieve targets set out in the Paris climate agreement, the deployment of renewable energy solutions is speeding up – but not all sectors can be electrified.

Solutions are needed to decarbonize hard to abate sectors such as shipping, aviation and other forms of heavy transportation as well as carbon intensive industries like steel, concrete and mining.

Topsoe recieves public funding for scaling up power-to-x solutions

The Danish Board of Business Development (Danmarks Erhvervsfremmebestyrelse) is granting up to DKK 88,8 million to a partnership between Topsoe, Denmark’s Technical University (DTU) and Aarhus University (AU)

Solution

Powering green hydrogen plants with renewable energy sources (wind, solar, hydro) enables countries and companies to produce the green hydrogen needed to decarbonize the most polluting and carbon intensive industries.

Topsoe’s highly efficient and industry leading SOEC technology produces 30% more green hydrogen compared with competing green hydrogen solutions. Green hydrogen produced can be used as is or synthesized with carbon or nitrogen to further expand it’s use across a multitude of other industries.

Topsoe is applying decades of experience as a world-leading technology provider within ammonia, methanol, gasoline, jet-fuel, diesel, and hydrogen to become a world leader in carbon reduction technologies.

Result

Topsoe’s SOEC electrolyzer plant based in Herning (Denmark), is the world’s biggest and will produce highly efficient solid oxide electrolyzers (SOEC) with a total capacity of 500 megawatt per year, with the option to expand to 5 gigawatt per year.

Through our state-of-the-art manufacturing plant, we are taking power-to-x technology to a commercially competitive position that can be deployed at scale – making the case for decarbonization irrefutable.

Visionary companies are already embracing Topsoe’s vision and innovations:

First Ammonia (FA) will offtake a minimum of 5GW electrolyzer capacity to produce green ammonia, the largest agreement to date for any type of electrolyzer. Through this agreement, First Ammonia will displace almost 5 BCM of natural gas and eliminate 13 million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually.

The first 500 MW of capacity will be installed in the world’s first commercial-scale green ammonia plants at sites in Northern Germany and Southwestern United States.
