    Green hydrogen to be produced this year

    January 18, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      The production and use of green hydrogen in Mexico to begin the decarbonization of the energy sector is expected to be a reality by the end of this year.

      Israel Hurtado, president of the Mexican Hydrogen Association (AMH), explained that there are four projects for the production of green hydrogen in the country and that they are in different stages of development.

      "I would expect that by the end of this year we could see these projects already producing green hydrogen," said Hurtado.

      One is in Guanajuato, which seeks to generate hydrogen to inject it into a gas pipeline and make a mixture with natural gas, which will allow to start with the decarbonization of the industrial sector and as a transition between fuels.

      Another is in Durango, which in addition to green hydrogen will also produce green ammonia for use in the fertilizer industry.

      In Baja California another project is contemplated, but in this case the molecule will be used for storage and generation of electric energy.

      The last one is in Sonora, but it is not yet clear what application it will have.

      All the projects will be based on solar energy, so photovoltaic equipment will have to be installed.

      Green hydrogen is produced through a process called electrolysis, which consists of separating the oxygen and hydrogen found in water with the help of electrical energy.

      If the energy comes from renewable sources such as sun and wind, it becomes a non-polluting process because it only generates water vapor.
