Hydrogen is a key element for the energy transition, at the center of the challenges of global warming. A fundamental energy carrier, storable and transportable over long distances, green and low-carbon hydrogen will play a key role in the decarbonization process, in the transport sector, as raw material in several industries such as steel or chemical, and as a building block to produce different products, like fertilizers.
To face the global challenges of the industry’s decarbonization, Solluz Energy through its expert team is able to meet the needs of the new developing hydrogen market.
Thanks to our technical expertise as a leading engineering company in energy, we are the best link between renewables and process industry, the partner of choice for any end-to-end project in the industry’s decarbonization.
We are able to develop or co-develop projects, act as industrializer and integrator of innovative technologies and finally realize plants as an EPC contractor both to produce renewable energy (solar and wind farm) and high value-added chemicals, using renewable hydrogen as feedstock.
In 2020, global hydrogen demand reached 90 Mt, almost entirely satisfied by natural gas reforming, coal gasification and lignite production. In the same year, the production of hydrogen has emitted 900 Mt of climate- changing emissions in the atmosphere (IEA, 2021), because of the predominance of fossil sources. By 2050 the demand for renewable or low- carbon hydrogen could reach about 660 million tons, 22% of the final energy demand at global level, according to the forecasts published in by the Hydrogen Council in November 2021.
The challenges of our time are that the world's population is growing more and more and fossil resources are running out. More people need more food and more energy. In order to protect the climate, we want to reduce the CO2 emissions. At Solluz Energy we are driven by sustainability – to stop climate change, develop technologies that make sustainability feasible for business, reduce the carbon footprint of industrial value chains, and move renewable energies forward. That is what motivated us to venture into green ammonia technology. Green ammonia is crucial to tackle the existential challenges of producing enough food to feed a growing global population and generating CO2-free energy. Ammonia (NH3), a compound of nitrogen and hydrogen, is mainly used to manufacture fertilizers. 80% of the annual global production of over 170 million metric tons is used in this way. And that should become even more in the next few years. But ammonia can also be burnt to make electricity with air and water the only emissions, or used as a storage medium for energy generated from renewable sources.
