In China, the demand for refined fuels is growing by 8% CAGR. In fact, higher quality standards, which are scheduled to begin in 2019, will almost double the demands for hydrogen by 2025. Currently, coal is being used by China to generate hydrogen at the industrial level. Yet, there is a push to recognize sustainable solutions for efficient production of hydrogen.
Proton Exchange Membrane Electrolysis
Recently, Proton OnSite was invited to deliver a presentation on the capabilities of large-scale Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysis at the 5th Annual Oil Refining & Deep-Processing Technology Conference, which was held in China. PEM electrolysis, combined with green energy, can reduce the carbon footprint of Chinese refineries and support the ever-increasing demand for hydrogen to serve global refining processes.
