China's demand for refined fuels is increasing by 8% CAGR. In fact, higher quality standards, set to start in 2019, will nearly double demands for hydrogen by 2025. Currently, China is using coal to produce hydrogen industrially. However, there is a push to identify sustainable solutions to produce hydrogen efficiently.
Proton OnSite was recently invited to present about the capabilities of large-scale Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolysis at the 5th Annual Oil Refining & Deep- Processing Technology Conference in China. Paired with green energy, PEM electrolysis can reduce the carbon footprint of Chinese refineries and support the growing demand for hydrogen to serve refining processes worldwide.
