December 9 Tobias Birwe, Head of Sales, Fertilizer and Methanol at thyssenkrupp talks about ‘Power-to-X solutions based on uhde technology by thyssenkrupp’.

About this session

With ongoing climate change the desire for most sustainable solutions is increasing. With further developing renewable energy infrastructure at lower cost and increasing political pressure by implementing carbon taxes, the industry recognizes the necessity of reducing carbon footprints. Renewable power will become the key energy provider of 21st century. In order to make renewable power storable and transportable it is best to convert it to hydrogen, ammonia or methanol. These base chemicals are perfectly suited to be used also for downstream processes or as efuels. Ammonia has the advantage of having highest energy density, which makes it quite favorable for long distance energy transport. The AFA region could benefit as it can start with a smooth conversion from grey to green production and thyssenkrupp has the solutions. Power-to-X based on uhde technology.
