Water, our blue gold!

Blue gold has never been so aptly named, as access to water resources has become increasingly precious over the years. Drought has become one of the most striking features of global warming, and it is only getting worse every year.

Support for the hydrogen sector: the European climate plan

A climate plan has been put in place by Europe to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. This requires massive support for the hydrogen sector. This should help increase hydrogen production and reduce costs.

Price of hydrogen - A full tank of hydrogen costs around €70, so it's cheaper than a full tank of petrol. Hello, I'm Matthieu Guesné, CEO of Lhyfe, and I'm going to talk to you about hydrogen. A full tank of hydrogen will run you 700 km for roughly €60 to €70. That's what we can afford today. Since we can produce it competitively, we can connect directly to renewable energies and then install plants that will enable us to achieve economies of scale quickly enough to produce it centrally and then distribute it to points of consumption. If we build large enough plants, we can produce hydrogen at a competitive price and deliver it to a large number of service stations. A large city like Paris, like Toulouse, can very easily afford its own hydrogen production unit. But what we're doing at Lhyfe is avoiding this ecological divide by producing our hydrogen centrally but regionally. One production site per region to supply everyone in the region. You have 411 service stations on motorway service areas, and a hydrogen station costs roughly one million euros, which means that for 400 million euros you could have a complete network of service stations in France. But in fact, out of a 9 billion French plan, it's nothing at all, so it's fast and it's cheap.

FAQ

What is renewable hydrogen and what steps does its production involve?

Renewable hydrogen or green hydrogen is an energy-carrying gas that emits no CO2, either during its production or when used.

It is obtained by electrolysis of water. This chemical process consists of breaking down the water molecule (H2O) into di-oxygen (O2) and di-hydrogen (H2) using an electric current…

FAQ

How is renewable hydrogen transported? What can it be used for?

Once compressed and purified, the hydrogen we produce is delivered either directly by pipe to industrial sites or by truck.

To keep environmental impacts to a minimum and to respect our commitment to producing completely environmentally friendly hydrogen, Lhyfe restricts delivery of hydrogen by truck to within a 200 km…

FAQ

Which industries use hydrogen? For what purposes?

For decades, hydrogen has been used extensively in a great many industrial applications, such as hydrocarbon refining, the production of ammonia and other chemicals, as well as materials processing.

Ninety-five percent of the hydrogen currently used by these industries is made using a process involving the steam reforming of…
