Topsoe to build advanced US electrolyser factory for clean hydrogen


Technology specialist Topsoe will launch a new factory to manufacture energy efficient solid oxide electrolyser cells (SOEC) for the production of clean hydrogen and derivatives like e-Ammonia and e-Methanol.

According to Topsoe, the factory’s output of electrolyser stacks will enable an annual greenhouse gas emission avoidance of up to two million tonnes of CO2 equivalent emissions.

The project received nearly $136m in federal tax credits from the Department of Energy (DOE) under the Qualifying Advanced Energy Project Credit (48C) to help the Virginia-based project accelerate US domestic clean energy.

“We are thrilled to announce our plans for a new state-of-the-art US facility that will manufacture SOEC, the key element to the world’s most efficient electrolyser technology for producing clean hydrogen,” said Roeland Baan, CEO at Topsoe.
