The project, which also includes Shell, Suncor Energy, and Hydro-Québec, will see Thyssenkrupp produce green hydrogen and oxygen, both of which will be used by Enerkem to convert MSW to fuel. With a projected capacity of 88 MW, this is one of the largest electrolyzer projects set to come online in the next five years – the use of green hydrogen from hydropower will result in a biofuel with a significantly low carbon intensity. Integrating green hydrogen with biofuel projects is quickly becoming a trend – in addition to this project, Total in France and Nouryon in the Netherlands have also announced similar initiatives.
