The industry today
Today, hydrogen represents a modest fraction of the global, European and national energy mix. What’s more, hydrogen is still largely produced from fossil fuels – usually natural gas or coal – which results in the release of millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) each year. If hydrogen is to contribute to climate neutrality, it will need to achieve a far greater reach and its production must become fully decarbonised.
Interest in hydrogen has peaked at various times in the past, but its sustained use has never really taken off. Today, technological developments, the rapid decline in the cost of renewable energy and an urgent need to dramatically reduce greenhouse gas emissions all combine to open up new possibilities for hydrogen use.
Green energy and future needs
Hydrogen is enjoying a renewed rapid growth in attention, both in Europe and around the globe. With the ability to be used as feedstock, fuel and for energy carriage and storage, the gas has many possible applications throughout industry, transport and power sectors. Most importantly, hydrogen emits no carbon dioxide and almost no air pollution in use – making it an effective solution when it comes to decarbonising industrial processes and economic sectors where carbon reduction is both urgent and hard to achieve.
It’s clear that hydrogen has an essential part to play in supporting international commitments to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 and in the global effort to implement the Paris Agreement while working towards zero pollution.
STÖHR is committed to having a positive impact on the environment and offers solutions for both stationary and mobile hydrogen-based applications. Our components meet the requirements at all medium temperatures, valve sizes and pressure levels.
Whether you’re working on stationary applications for infrastructure, filling stations, or decentralised energy supply systems or perhaps mobile applications for aviation, maritime, automotive, aeronautics or railroad, we’re open to your challenge! Get in touch to discuss your design concept and we’ll work with you to design, prototype and manufacture the fittings and installations you need for mass production.
