Did you miss Florent BAUDU’s pitch about zero-carbon hydrogen in the heavy industry during the World Hydrogen Fuels Summit? Here is an extract of the video. You can also discover the Executive Summary of the event, a true overview of the key insights shared in Amsterdam during the great World Hydrogen Fuel Summit.
First, let’s recall that the WHFS gathered last March in Amsterdam all the hydrogen stakeholders in the room: politicians, oil giants, chemical and legislative experts, the summit created a breeding ground for collaboration and strategic planning that will enable a proactive coordinated shift towards Hydrogen!
This frontrunner project will allow to validate at real industrial scale McPhy pioneering electrolysis technology.
McPhy was on stage during the WHFS, with Florent Baudu, Sales Director in charge of Heavy Industry, sharing the early insights about the Djewels project, a first of its kind in the industrial hydrogen market. It is indeed the first zero-carbon hydrogen production unit at this scale (20 MW) to be implemented in Europe.
It’s a true stepping stone to support zero-carbon hydrogen production at a large-scale, in line with the #EUGreenDeal vision of a carbon neutral Europe by 2050.
The project is led by Nouryon, a leading specialty chemical company, and Gasunie, a gas infrastructure company, with the support of four other partners: De Nora, McPhy, BioMCN and Hinicio. It is funded by a European grant from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU) and by Waddenfonds, a fund that invests in projects in the Netherlands.

Executive Summary of the event
Advancing the conversation between government and leading companies: international collaboration for real-world action!
[Tuesday March 3nd, 2020] We’re thrilled to be part of the World Hydrogen Fuels Summit, on March 10-11 in Amsterdam. The two-day World Hydrogen Fuels Summit will act as a roadmap for the future of hydrogen as a key success factor in the clean energy revolution. This must-attend event will provide the industry with an opportunity to ask governments what is needed with one voice. Alongside Mitsubishi Heavy Industry & Gasunie, McPhy will share its strong know-how in pressurized alkaline electrolysis put at the service of the wide scale decarbonation of the heavy industry sector.
Hydrogen: moving towards a carbon-neutral society
With increasing support from government, including adequate policy schemes, a mature hydrogen economy could help abate 6 Gt of annual CO2 emissions and result in $2.5 trillion in annual sales, creating 30 million jobs worldwide.
In this very favorable context, the 2-day World Hydrogen Fuels Summit was established to advance the conversation between industry and government. All the stakeholders (governments, leading companies and academics) will be there to define a road map towards accelerated market activation, and towards a carbon-neutral society.
Low carbon, responsible, innovative and profitable: welcome to the industry of the future
Widely used for its flexibility, multisectoral applications and its energy efficiency, hydrogen is a competitive and attractive strategic technology for industrial companies. By replacing existing carbonized energies with clean hydrogen, produced by electrolysis from renewable sources, industrialists are entering a new low-carbon era.
We are delighted to attend the Summit that will act as a roadmap to the future. During a roundtable dedicated to hydrogen in the heavy industry sector, we will have the opportunity to share our extensive experience within the electrolysis market segment:
- Market: proven track record and market outlook
- Technology: how can our breakthrough alkaline pressurized electrolysis technology “Augmented McLyzer” can play a significant role in the decarbonation of the industry sector
- Bigger scale, lower costs: a path to cost competitiveness
Join hydrogen experts to discuss strategies & track industry progress!

The Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Region (France) launches its hydrogen club
[Thursday March 5th, 2020] It’s on a webinar, on March 26th that the launch of the Bourgogne Franche-Comté hydrogen club will take place!
Hydrogen in the territories: making the energy transition a success
Zero-carbon hydrogen is a key vector in the energy transition, as it can meet major environmental challenges through its use in multiple applications. Used as a feedstock in industrial processes, converted into clean fuel for zero-emission vehicles, or used to facilitate storage and flexibility for electricity and gas networks, zero-carbon hydrogen contributes to the decarbonation of all sections of the economy and the emergence of a societal model that is more carbon neutral.
At the time of growing need for action against climate change, it’s at the local level that projects that will decarbonize all sectors of activity can be developed. Following the example of many regions in France, Europe and in the world, the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Region is committed to making hydrogen as a strategic zero-carbon energy for the development of the territories.
The Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Region is committed to energy transition
In this context and in view of the exponential growth of the hydrogen market, the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region is committed to the energy transition by taking initiatives to ensure the development of the hydrogen sector.
The « Pôle Véhicule du Futur » is organizing a webinar to launch the hydrogen club of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Region on March 26th, 2020.
This club will regroup industrial and research actors involved in the hydrogen sector. The aim is to give greater visibility to the H2 projects and applications deployed in the region.
Take part of the webinar to the launch of the hydrogen club of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Region, registration: [FR] https://www.vehiculedufutur.com/event/ !

“Hydrogen in the industry sector: challenges of a decarbonized production & prospects for the valorization of H2 as an energy vector”
McPhy, a pioneer in zero-carbon hydrogen technologies for the decarbonization of industry, is participating at the “Hydrogen in the industry sector” event proposed by Tenerrdis, in partnership with Axelera. This event is dedicated to manufacturers and aims at sharing feedback and highlighting regional initiatives in favor of a low CO2-emitting industry.
Following the launch of the French National Hydrogen Plan in 2018, many projects for the deployment of clean hydrogen for industrial and mobility uses have been launched in France.
Selected to equip the largest zero-carbon hydrogen production unit in Europe (“Industrial hydrogen: a 20 MW project in the Netherlands“), McPhy, through the voice of Pierre Lombard, Sales Director, will testify during the round table from 2:30 to 3:00 pm around the Nouryon/Gasunie project. A unique opportunity to learn more about the latest technological advances in alkaline electrolyzers, at the highest levels of quality and safety, while providing feedback on the co-construction and integration of such a project in the heart of a major chemical industrial site.
To initiate a reflection on new industrial practices that reconcile the challenges of productivity and societal responsibility, discuss about their integration at the scale of a territory and define the associated business models, visit the Roussillon Chemical Platform on February 20th, 2020.
