Heavy industry and long-haul transportation are responsible for a large percentage of humanity's greenhouse-gas emissions. In these sectors, direct electrification is not enough. They need energy-dense green fuels – similar to the fuels used today, but made from renewable sources. In this presentation a set of solutions will be presented. Solutions based on combining proven technologies from the chemical industry with new technology to produce essential chemicals and fuels such as green hydrogen, green ammonia, eMethanol, and other clean fuels from non-fossil feedstocks such as biomass, waste and renewable electricity. The most critical new technology in terms of cost and energy loss is water electrolysis for hydrogen production. A deep dive on the most efficient electrolysis technology, high temperature solid oxide electrolysis will be given ranging from basic thermodynamics to process integration for chemicals production.
