DOE funding encourages transition towards commercializing electrolysis technology

Gigawatt-Scale Green Hydrogen Production: Thyssenkrupp Nucera and De Nora Secure Funding for Automation

In the US, Thyssenkrupp Nucera and De Nora have been awarded funding to automate the production of gigawatt-scale alkaline water electrolysis. This grant, which is part of a larger $750 million fund for 52 projects across 24 states, will enable the companies to transition from manual labor to mass production and better position themselves in the US market.

In addition to their work in the US, Thyssenkrupp Nucera has established a strategic partnership with Fraunhofer IKTS in Europe to advance high-temperature solid oxide electrolyzer cell (Soec) technology. Together, they plan to move this technology towards industrial manufacturing and application, with a pilot plant expected to start production by the first quarter of 2025.

This partnership represents a significant step forward in advancing green hydrogen production technologies. Soec technology will have numerous benefits for industries like green steel, ammonia, methanol, and fertilizers, where industrial waste heat is generated during production. By reducing electricity consumption and eliminating the need for rare precious metals, high-temperature technology offers a more sustainable solution for these industries.
