Hydrogen has been used in a variety of industrial applications for a very long time. Today, over 80% of the hydrogen produced is used to produce fertilizers, for fuel desulfurization and in the petrochemical industry. Unfortunately, 95% of this hydrogen is obtained using fossil fuels through steam reforming or gasification of hydrocarbons, which for example in France, represents 3% of the national CO2 emissions.
Many countries such as Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Japan have launched large-scale programs to develop decarbonated hydrogen production projects. Gen-Hy's ambition is to play an important role in these programs by providing an efficient, modular and cost-effective solution adapted to the different industrial needs and applications.
Our modular Hy-Cube hydrogen production units are containerized to facilitate handling and can be easily set-up in limited compact spaces indoor or outdoor. The units are available in 3 sizes - 10, 20 and 2x20 feet - and each unit contains a scalable number of standard generators that can be adapted to the volume of hydrogen needed. The streamlined production of our units also allows scale optimization.
Opting for Gen-Hy’s solution for on-site hydrogen production allows supply on-demand, which relieves the logistics department from ordering, handling and storing hydrogen tanks. It reduces transportation costs, saves valuable floor space and requires less safety measures, making the Hy-Cube a cost effective and safe solution.
Our hydrogen production units are designed and fully manufactured on our plant to ensure durable quality and to limit CO2 emissions caused by transportation. The units are dimensioned to our customers’ exact requirements and efficient flow management as well as the safety protocol are ensured by a proprietary software programmed for each situation. There is no waste of power.
Our electrolysis technology allows the system’s quick start and stop time, guaranteeing continuity of service and on-demand availability. It produces highly pure hydrogen (with 99.999% of purity) using completely green and sustainable energy, provided that decarbonated electricity is available. Our electrolyzers are produced using recycled materials, moreover, the revolutionary AEM membrane is free of any rare and noble metals.
