The role of clean hydrogen for a climate-neutral industry

On the emergence of new supply and value chains

May 19, 2021 | 4 p.m. (CEST) / 10 a.m. (EDT)

Europe wants to become the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050. Hydrogen - not grey, but green - is supposed to do the trick. But how?

The decarbonisation of industrial production is only possible through the complete replacement of fossil hydrocarbons. Climate-neutral hydrogen plays an important role in this. It serves not only as a substitute for fossil energy, but also as a raw material for industrial processes and products. But where should the large quantities of climate-neutral hydrogen come from?

Green hydrogen, produced locally from purely renewable energies, e.g. from wind power, cannot meet the demand! It is not only the large industries such as chemicals and steel production that face a major challenge, but the entire value chain in the industry and the wider economy. A strategic outlook!

You can ask questions at any time during the web seminar, which will be answered after the presentation.

Who should attend:

This web seminar is intended for managers and creators of the energy and resource transition in the not-so-easy to decarbonise industries, as well as all potential actors along the future hydrogen value chain.

In this web seminar you learn:

  • How can hydrogen replace coal, oil and gas in industry?
  • What is clean hydrogen? And why is it important for chemicals and steel in particular?
  • Why some countries cannot become self-sufficient with hydrogen?
  • What are the options for supply? At reasonable cost?
  • How can the hydrogen economy build up in Europe?
  • What is the relation between hydrogen and circular economy?
