Hydrogen production

The world's largest PEM hydrogen electrolysis plant is located on the premises of the Shell Rheinland refinery in Wesseling. Since July 2021, it has been covering part of the hydrogen demand via green hydrogen based on electricity from renewable energies. With the REFHYNE project, the European consortium of Shell, ITM Power, SINTEF, thinkstep and Element Energy is not only reducing the site's CO2 emissions, but also making a contribution to the energy transition in the refinery industry.
