To be able to make climate-friendly hydrogen, renewable energy and not least ultrapure water are required. Water treatment plant from Silhorko-Eurowater provide pure water at Denmark's first Power-to-X facility. 

The Power-to-X is part of the HyBalance project, that demonstrates the use of hydrogen in energy systems. The project has shown great potential in storing renewable electricity from wind turbines and using it to produce hydrogen from water-based electrolysis. Søren Bjerregaard Pedersen, CEO of Hydrogen Valley explains:

"The hydrogen produced at HyBalance is produced with a significantly smaller CO2 emission than hydrogen produced by reforming natural gas, since the electrolysis process itself does not emit CO2. At the same time, the purity of the hydrogen from HyBalance is much greater and therefore, in principle, reach a larger market than hydrogen produced by reforming natural gas."

What is Power-to-X?

Power-to-X (PtX) would translate to 'power-to-something'. It describes how renewable energy can be converted into hydrogen, so that we thereby obtain climate-friendly fuels. Through an electrolysis process, water is split into hydrogen and oxygen using green electricity from renewable sources, such as wind turbines or solar cells. Hydrogen can be used directly as a fuel in the transport sector.
