Energy transition: large-scale hydrogen technology project qualifies for the next round

HySCALE100 – large-scale hydrogen production and green methanol synthesis to decarbonise the value chains of two major industries, petrochemicals and cement

Germany, May 2021 – The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) have approved the project proposal put forward by Raffinerie Heide GmbH, Holcim Deutschland GmbH, Hynamics Deutschland GmbH and Ørsted Wind Power Germany GmbH for the next stage of the European IPCEI (Important Project of Common European Interest) initiative.
This makes the project called HySCALE100 one of the few projects in Germany that is being assessed by the ministries and prepared for an evaluation at European level.
HySCALE100 addresses major climate protection goals with large-scale hydrogen production and the decarbonisation of two primary industries (petrochemicals and cement). Commissioning is scheduled for 2025 and 2027, respectively.
