Plans for a 100MW electrolyser that would supply green hydrogen to the European ceramics industry as it looks to cut emissions have been unveiled today by an international consortium of 40 organisations.

The planned large-scale pilot plant, which could be operational by early 2024, will be deployed nearby Castellón in Spain, in one of the most important ceramic industrial clusters in Europe, concentrating 95% of the ceramic industry of Spain and 33% of the CO2 emissions of the Valencian region.
The partnership includes major industrial players, investment firms, research centres, institutional bodies and the cluster of off takers from the ceramics industry for the hydrogen to be produced, including Smartenergy, Sunfire and Enel Green Power.
