Green hydrogen is very important for the transition towards a clean, affordable energy supply and a CO2-neutral industry.
Currently, almost all hydrogen that is being produced, is ‘grey’. It is extracted from the reaction between ‘high-pressure-steam’ and methane, which also causes CO2. The challenge is to produce hydrogen in a sustainable and affordable way. This requires the know-how and machinery from the High Tech Systems and Materials sector (HTSM) and a high-tech way of thinking, while taking account of standardization and the ability to scale up technologies. The HTSM sector in Brainport Eindhoven has the necessary know-how and expertise in the field of electrochemical conversion & materials, measurement and detection technology, manufacturing techniques and cost-efficient manufacturing. That is why Brainport Eindhoven is not focusing on large-scale production of hydrogen, but rather on the improvement of the technology to also enable other regions to produce green hydrogen at a large-scale and in a cost-efficient way.
