The Kerionics spin-off reaches the "milestone" of generating green hydrogen with its own technology

It is a step to "make the leap from experimental to commercial hydrogen generation"

VALENCIA, 24 Mar. (EUROPA PRESS) -

Kerionics, a spin-off of the Institute of Chemical Technology --of the CSIC and the Polytechnic University of Valencia-- has reached "the milestone" of generating green hydrogen with its own technology.

This Spanish deep-tech company, which develops high-temperature solid oxide electrolyzers for the production of renewable hydrogen, has taken a "crucial step on the road map for the development of its product, with which, in a few months, it will reach the power and volume of generation necessary to make the leap, from the experimental generation of hydrogen, to commercial generation," the entity said in a statement.

With this initiative, the spin-off aspires to respond with the manufacture of equipment to a total of 616 MW delivered between 2026 and 2030. In line with the Valencian Hydrogen Strategy for the creation and promotion of Valencian suppliers of the necessary technologies for Green hydrogen generation.

The Renewable Hydrogen Strategy of the Valencian Community for 2030 proposes that 75,000 tons of hydrogen per year be generated from renewable sources in the region under the economic framework of the Next Generation funds, the company recalls.

A plan that basically focuses on the fact that the Valencian industry has a high energy consumption that requires reaching more efficient solutions both in the environmental and economic aspects, especially in factories that currently need a high use of thermal energy such as tiles, petrochemicals or textiles. .

The electrolyzer technology used by Kerionics is considered "one of the most promising in the industry to achieve the long-awaited decarbonization." It is high-temperature solid oxide electrolyser technology complemented by proprietary and patented technology in order to respond to the needs that the industry demands in this emerging sector of hydrogen generation and other gases that enable industrial decarbonization, they detail.

The company is working in collaboration with various technological and industrial partners, national and European, to bring the production of renewable hydrogen to solve the challenges posed by the fight against climate change. Notable among them are ITQ-CSIC, Intecsa, Acteco, Greene, Imperial College of London, Torrecid, Técnicas Reunidas, GDES (Grupo Dominguis Energy Services), INAEL and Urbaser.

"The achievement achieved by this Valencian company is the result of the restructuring of its facilities in Torrente, which has led them to multiply the development capacity, size and efficiency of their stacks; the heart of the hydrogen-producing electrolyser", they conclude.
