    Ineos Launches Hydrogen Fuel Network Trial at Grangemouth

    May 6, 2022 - Chemical Industry Digest


      UK based Ineos has announced its participation in a project with pipeline network management firm SGN to bring hydrogen distribution networks a step closer to reality in the United Kingdom. Hydrogen supplied from the Grangemouth site in Scotland to the SGN project will help determine how existing natural gas networks can be repurposed for hydrogen.

      With the SGN pilot at Grangemouth in conjunction with INEOS, building a UK wide hydrogen delivery network gets a step closer to reality. The energy regulator and gas distribution firms are funding the trial, which will utilise hydrogen supplied by INEOS in a twenty-nine kilometer piece of decommissioned pipeline between the Grangemouth plant and Granton.

      SGN Director of Energy Futures, Gus Mcintosh says, “Our local transmission system is part of the national critical infrastructure that reaches millions of homes and businesses across the UK. So, repurposing it for hydrogen could support a hydrogen system transformation that is neither expensive nor disruptive to customers.”

      Andrew Gardner, Chairman INEOS Grangemouth adds, “We are delighted to be partnering with SGN in a trial that will help determine how the UK’s transmission networks can be repurposed for hydrogen gas. We believe that Grangemouth is the ideal location in Scotland to create a hub for hydrogen production, use and export.”

      In January, INEOS had announced the next step in its plans to build a world-scale low carbon hydrogen plant at Grangemouth as it commits to being net-zero by 2045. This trial, will help improve an understanding of existing networks and the suitability to deliver hydrogen as a clean alternative to natural gas, to homes and businesses.
