TransHyDE-Sys – System Analysis on Transport Solutions for Green Hydrogen

  • Background
    • In the future, hydrogen will be an important building block for achieving the climate targets in Europe
    • A hydrogen economy cannot function without a suitable transport infrastructure
    • According to the Federal Environment Agency, around 31.4 million tons of CO2 were emitted by iron and steel production in 2018, representing 6.4% of the total amount of CO2 emissions reported in the PRTR
    • In terms of industrial CO2 emissions, the steel producing sector accounts for 22 % and thus, is the largest industrial CO2 emitter in Europe
  • Objectives
    • TransHyDE-Sys is a collaborative project within the TransHyDE technology platform that deals with the systemic analysis of transport solutions for green hydrogen
    • Aim of the BFI’s work is to identify possible transformation paths to the desired climate neutrality of the iron and steel industry based on the perspective of the stakeholders, to quantify requirements and to develop implementation options as well as the associated and necessary framework conditions
  • Innovative content
    • Infrastructure solutions will be developed, examined, and classified from two different perspectives (bottom-up and top-down). Both developments will be subjected to a model comparison
  • Potential benefits for the industry
    • Roadmap for future availability (production and distribution) of hydrogen
