Green fuels as the key to clean energy and propulsion
Sustainable fuels are key to a carbon-neutral future for energy and propulsion. We rely on HVO, hydrogen, and on other e-fuels produced using green, renewable electricity. This way, our combustion engines can provide clean energy for today and tomorrow.
The mtu H2 ecosystem for CO2 neutral fuels
High-performance electrolysers are one of the key components of the energy transition. They produce green hydrogen, which can be used as fuel both for fuel cells and combustion engines and further processed into synthetic fuels. mtu electrolysers are equipped with polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) stacks from Hoeller Electrolyzer. These can produce hydrogen significantly more efficiently and thus at a lower cost than other stacks available on the market.
In the electrolysis of hydrogen, water is placed under DC voltage, producing hydrogen at the negative pole and oxygen at the positive pole. The electrochemical reaction takes place between plate-shaped electrodes separated by membranes. Hundreds of cells, one above the other and pressed together, form a stack, the core of an electrolyzer.
The future of fuels is diverse. But not every fuel is suitable for every application. Energy density, availability and infrastructure play a major role in selection.
