Provision of hydrogen as an industrial by-product and installation of a local hydrogen infrastructure. The Chemergy project has the purpose to open up the infrastructure of the chemical industry, which has so far been closed in, and to provide public access, so that hydrogen can be used as energy carrier. This constitutes a necessary condition to establish an optimal starting position for the commercially reasonable operation of hydrogen applications in the future.
Chemergy is a milestone for electric traffic & transport concepts which are both economically viable and environmentally friendly, and it offers competitive fuel costs and profits made possible by the favourable local situation. The development of the infrastructure is clearly beneficial for the locations and the regions competitiveness. In parallel to the local activities the project partners examine how the findings of the Chemergy project can be transferred to other locations and how the potential resources of the industrial by-product hydrogen can be put to use in the region, in NRW and in Germany as a whole to ensure optimal results in efficiency.
