Essar Oil UK will develop what it says will be the UK’s first refinery-based hydrogen furnace as part of a £45m ($61m) investment that will see the company’s Stanlow site showcase the benefits of using hydrogen as a fuel source.
The energy company already has its timeline in place, having today (Feb 9) confirmed that the furnace will be installed this year (2022) and become fully operational from 2023.
