Transport without any emission of CO2, dust particles, nitrogen oxides and other pollutants from the engine: is this just a dream or can it be reality? Electrical vehicles equipped with hydrogen fuel cells for generating onboard electricity already represent this reality. By using green hydrogen, the whole system becomes carbon-free. Hysolar focuses on the production, supply and use of green hydrogen.
The effort to reduce climate change has had a significant impact on the electrification of transport and mobility. Vehicles can now be powered by electromotors, for which onboard batteries and hydrogen fuel cells provide electricity. For light traffic and/or short distances, batteries provide a proper solution. For large vehicles, long-distance transport, and for heavy-duty machinery hydrogen fuel cells are the way forward, in which case electricity is generated using hydrogen as fuel.
Green hydrogen can be produced along two different routes:
- Splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen by electrolysis using electricity from renewable sources; by-products are pure oxygen and heat, which can be used for beneficiary applications.
- Converting methane from biogas, generated by digestion of organic material; by-product is pure CO2 (gas or liquid), which in turn can be used, for example, in horticulture or in the chemical industry.
In addition to transport, green hydrogen can be applied in a wide range of applications, including chemical synthesis (e.g., polymers, fertilizers), metal processing and heating in the built environment (replacing natural gas, e.g., in old city centers).
Our services rely on a sound cooperation between key players along the value chain of green hydrogen. The activities are split as follows:
- Production and supply of green hydrogen through Hysolar B.V.: shareholders are Allied Waters, Jos Scholman Contractors (josscholman.nl), Scholt Energy (www.scholt.nl) and Van Kessel (www.vankesselolie.nl)
- Innovation and Consultancy services through Allied Waters B.V.
We are happy to share our know-how and in-house experiences in the field of green hydrogen.
Allied Waters, driving the circular economy.
