Leuna – The industrial production of hydrogen from renewable electricity is to be researched in Leuna in the future.
Minister of Economics Armin Willingmann (SPD) is handing over funding to the Fraunhofer Hydrogen Network and the Fraunhofer Center for Chemical-Biotechnological Processes for more than eight million euros this afternoon. The money will then be used to build two pilot plants.
The aim is to use solar and wind power to produce “green” hydrogen in such a way that it is profitable for mass production. The production by electrolysis on an industrial scale is currently still uneconomical, the ministry said.
According to Fraunhofer, the groundbreaking for the pilot plants is scheduled for mid-2020. The plant in Leuna is scheduled to go into operation in the following year.
