HySCALE100 – Large-scale hydrogen production and green methanol synthesis for the decarbonization of the value chains of the two large industries petrochemical and cement
The Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) and the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) have approved the project proposal put forward by Raffinerie Heide GmbH, Holcim Deutschland GmbH, Hynamics Deutschland GmbH and Ørsted Wind Power Germany GmbH for the next stage of the European IPCEI (Important Project of Common European Interest) initiative.
This makes the project called HySCALE100 one of the few projects in Germany that is being checked for content by the ministries and is being prepared for testing at European level.
HySCALE100 addresses important climate protection goals with large-scale hydrogen production and the decarbonization of two basic industries (petrochemicals and cement). The commissioning of the plants is planned for 2025 and 2027 respectively.
