DOE funding encourages transition towards commercializing electrolysis technology

Thyssenkrupp Nucera and De Nora Lead the Way in Green Hydrogen Production with Automation and Partnerships

Green hydrogen is the latest buzzword in energy production, and Thyssenkrupp Nucera US and De Nora are leading the charge. The companies have received funding to automate gigawatt-scale alkaline water electrolysis production lines in the US. This funding will help them transition from manual labor to mass production, better positioning their business in the US market. The grant is part of a larger fund of $750 million for 52 projects across 24 states, marking a significant investment in electrolysis technologies under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

But that’s not all. Thyssenkrupp Nucera has also established a strategic partnership with Fraunhofer IKTS in Europe to advance high-temperature solid oxide electrolyser cell (Soec) technology. Together, they plan to move this technology towards industrial manufacturing and application, with a pilot plant expected to start production by the first quarter of 2025. By reducing electricity consumption and eliminating the need for rare precious metals, high-temperature technology offers a more sustainable solution for industries like green steel, ammonia, methanol, and fertilizers, where industrial waste heat is generated during production.

This partnership represents a significant step forward in advancing green hydrogen production technologies. It will enable Thyssenkrupp Nucera to produce and use stacks based on the Fraunhofer technology. The company believes that Soec technology will have numerous benefits for industries like green steel, ammonia, methanol, and fertilizers. By using high-temperature solid oxide electrolyser cells instead of conventional processes that require rare precious metals or large amounts of electricity, these industries can reduce their carbon footprint while increasing efficiency and profitability.
