Currenta Becomes Part of the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance
  • Hydrogen technology is an important factor in making the economy in Europe carbon neutral

Leverkusen — Currenta becomes part of the “European Alliance for Clean Hydrogen”. The initiative founded by the European Commission supports the development of a clean and globally competitive hydrogen industry and aims to contribute to the EU’s goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050.

“Clean hydrogen technology is an important factor in making the economy in Europe CO2-neutral,” says Günter Hilken, Chairman of the Currenta management board. “The goals of the alliance therefore fit perfectly with our ideas and convictions on the subject of sustainability. We want to contribute our infrastructure and our know-how to the alliance, ”adds Managing Director Frank Hyldmar.The Chempark manager and operator Currenta can rely on extensive experience and expert knowledge in the operation of industrial plants and the management of complex approval procedures. The Chempark locations also have the required space and the necessary infrastructure such as electricity and gas network connections and thus offer ideal conditions for setting up a regional hydrogen hub.

At the Chempark locations in Leverkusen, Dormagen and Krefeld-Uerdingen, Currenta provides services for more than 70 industrial companies in the areas of supply and disposal, infrastructure, security, analysis, maintenance and logistics. Hydrogen is already being produced on site by steam reforming and chlor-alkali electrolysis and is used in production by the Chempark partners.

In the future, climate-neutral hydrogen will continue to gain importance as a key raw material for a greenhouse gas-neutral industry – also in other areas, for example in the mobility and logistics sector.
