De Nora to supply electrodes to the largest GREEN HYDROGEN plant in Europe

Milan—January 22, 2020 —The project initiated by Nouryon and Gasunie will realize in Delfzijl, the Netherland, the largest ZERO – CARBON HYDROGEN PLANT in Europe, with a production capacity of 3,000 ton/year (20 MW). GREEN HYDROGEN will be deployed for the decarbonization of the industry sector reducing by 27,000 ton/year CO2 emission.

Hydrogen production is based on McPhy innovative alkaline water electrolysis technology “Augmented McLyzer”, specifically designed for large scale installations and equipped with De Nora special electrodes.

De Nora “electrodic package” installed in McPhy electrolyzer allows generation of hydrogen with the lowest TCO – Total Cost of Ownership – through a substantial reduction of the overall plant footprint (maximizing the operating current density) and the optimization of the total power consumption (increasing efficiency and operating pressure), while, at the same time, having a low cost of the electrolyzer.

Luca Buonerba, De Nora’s Chief Marketing & Business Development Officer states: “This is the first installation of our latest generation of advanced electrode package for water electrolysis.
We are happy that our continuous efforts to achieve better performances are shortening the roadmap towards a sustainable solution for the decarbonization and the energy transitions.
Our large footprint is already set up to serve all water electrolysis manufacturer with advanced solution in the quantities projected by all the latest studies.
I’m excited that this project is finally starting and what we anticipated is becoming a reality: The Energy Transition is happening NOW!
