By joining the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, Endress+Hauser intends to support the development of a clean and competitive hydrogen industry in Europe. The aim is to achieve CO2 neutrality in industry by mid-century through the introduction of hydrogen technologies. Together with other industrial partners, Endress+Hauser wants to support efforts for a sustainable future.
Green hydrogen is seen as one of the keys to decarbonisation in many sectors and an essential part of the energy transition. The European Clean Hydrogen Alliance will play a crucial role in the implementation of the EU's hydrogen strategy. "Through our membership, we want to support initiatives aimed at decarbonisation and the achievement of climate goals in order to actively contribute to a sustainable future," says Paul Borggreve, Corporate Director of Marketing at endress+Hauser Group.
A contribution to sustainable development
The alliance, an initiative of the European Commission, brings together actors from industry, science, governments and the private sectors to mobilise resources and develop an investment programme that promotes the production and use of renewable hydrogen and creates a list of concrete projects, laying the foundations for a sustainable and competitive hydrogen ecosystem in the EU.
Hydrogen, an alternative to fossil fuels, can enable the transition to a CO2-neutral future in a wide range of sectors. These include the oil, gas and chemical industries, as well as steel and cement manufacturing, where it is particularly difficult to avoid emissions. "Green hydrogen is a key element of the energy transition," adds Jens Hundrieser, European Regional Industry Manager for Energy & Metal.
A complete portfolio for hydrogen applications
Endress+Hauser already has a large portfolio of devices for measuring points of critical processes in the production, storage and use of hydrogen. These include gas analyzers using laser technology to determine gas quality, flow measurement solutions and level measurements in liquid hydrogen tanks.
Endress+Hauser instruments meet the highest standards of process and environmental safety. Hydrogen applications require, among other things, instruments capable of withstanding high process pressures, above 1,000 bar, or extreme temperatures of up to -253 degrees Celsius. "The European Clean Hydrogen Alliance allows us to learn together with our partners and continue to improve our range of products and solutions for the hydrogen industry," says Paul Borggreve.
