Hydrogen plays an important role in the measurements to curb climate change. In addition to the use of renewable energies for power generation and electromobility, alternatives to fossil fuels are needed, for example, for use in industry and heavy-duty transport. Hydrogen has a decisive advantage here: its combustion does not produce any climate-damaging CO2 emissions, only water vapor.
But hydrogen is not automatically climate-friendly. To produce the energy carrier in a climate-neutral way, the electricity required for the electrolysis process must be generated from renewable energies. The value chain of "green" hydrogen therefore already begins with the energy generation for its production and is full of technical challenges right up to its use in industry and transport. As an expert in explosion protection, Pepperl+Fuchs offers the appropriate products and solutions to ensure safe automated processes along the hydrogen value chain.
