Vattenfall and Preem are assessing large-scale production of fossil-free hydrogen in Lysekil, Sweden, as part of a new partnership.
Sweden’s largest producer of fuel, Preem has a target of producing five million cubic metres of biofuel by 2050, a goal which could potentially remove 12.5 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
It was this goal that spurred on the partnership announced today, through which the companies will look into the possibility of meeting Preem’s hydrogen needs with fossil-free hydrogen from extensive water electrolysis.
The study, planned to be completed by summer, will not only look into hydrogen production, but also the refinery’s future electrical supply. If successful, a next step may be the construction of the first electrolysis facility at the Lysekil refinery, amounting to 200-500MW.
