Turkey is looking to decarbonise its steel making sector with hydrogen.
Xebec Adsorption today (Sep 30) said it is assisting in such effort, having secured a contract to supply two Hy.GEN® 150 units to a Turkish flat steel manufacturer.
With a capacity of approximately 600 kg of hydrogen per day at 99.999% purity, the units will create a protective atmosphere within the annealing heat-treatment process.
On the deal, Marinus van Driel, President of Xebec Europe, said, “We are excited to be working with one of the largest steel manufacturers in Turkey to reduce carbon emissions and costs of their hydrogen supply with our decentralised hydrogen generation technologies.
“Using high purity hydrogen within the steel annealing process is a new use case for us and is an excellent example of how we can serve a variety of manufacturing processes.
“We look forward to growing our hydrogen reference base which now includes active installations in glass manufacturing, food, electronics, hydrocracking, and the emerging mobility sector for refuelling of hydrogen vehicles.”
The first of its kind contract for Xebec represents the company’s diverse set of industrial applications for on-site hydrogen generation.
