Infraserv Höchst has joined the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP), a cross-industry initiative working across all sectors to activate the market for mobility with hydrogen and fuel cells in the interests of a sustainable energy turnaround.
The European chemical company is already demonstrating how a hydrogen infrastructure conserves resources and produces fewer climate-damaging emissions.
Infraserv Höchst joins Air Liquide, Audi, BMW, Daimler, EWE, GP Joule, H2 Mobility, Honda, Hyundai, Linde, OMV, Shell, Total, Toyota and the Westfalen Group, who are all already partners of the CEP.
Commenting on the new partnership, Dr. Joachim Kreysing, Managing Director of Infraserv Höchst, said, ”In our view, hydrogen is one of the central building blocks of the energy transition – far beyond the issue of mobility.
“At Industriepark Höchst, we already rely on environmentally friendly energy sources. Hydrogen plays a central role in this: it can be easily produced from electricity and other sources as well as stored and transported.
“The hydrogen filling station for trains, which we are constructing until 2022, fits perfectly into our strategy as a supplement to the filling facilities for buses and trucks.
“Hydrogen, the environmentally friendly alternative to petrol and diesel, is produced in the industrial park as a by-product of chemical production.
“The right infrastructure for a sustainable combination of electricity, heat and transport is already in place locally.”
Dr. Sirko Ogriseck, Hydrogen Project Coordinator at Infraserv Höchst, added, “For us, the CEP is the most important player when it comes to e-mobility with hydrogen. We would like to actively engage in this area and help to drive forward the expansion of the technology.”
