The construction works at the biggest ever known hydrogen pilot facility have been kicked off.


It is expected that the 6 MW EU-funded project will generate 1,200 cubic meters of hydrogen per hour.

It is designed to test potential applications for green hydrogen in different phases of steel production and integration into the electricity reserve markets for the power grid as well as research into next generation tech required to achieve climate goals.

The cost of the project, developed in Linz, Austria by the H2FUTURE conglomerate, is estimated at €18 million.  

It is well-known that globally, over 600 billion cubic meters of hydrogen are used per year, 95% of which is made via a high polluting process.

By spring 2019 the plant should be entirely operational.
