The REFHYNE project is at the forefront of the effort to supply Clean Refinery Hydrogen for Europe. The project is funded by the European Commission’s Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) and has installed and now operates Europes largest hydrogen electrolyser the Shell Rhineland Refinery in Wesseling, Germany.
The PEM electrolyser, built by ITM Power, is the largest of its kind to be deployed on a large industrial scale. The REFHYNE project will investigate feasibility for introduction in other industry plants, as well as potentially being a step towards the future of refining and determine the possible technical, economic & environmental benefits of the technology.
This project has received funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No 779579. This Joint Undertaking receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, Hydrogen Europe and Hydrogen Europe Research.
