H2Pro, Sumitomo to work on green hydrogen initiatives
Israeli cleantech company H2Pro has agreed to partner with Japanese conglomerate Sumitomo Corporation on a variety of green hydrogen initiatives, it said on March 8.
Under the agreement, Sumitomo will integrate H2Pro's E-TAC electrolyzers at the hundreds of MW scale, primarily for use in green ammonia projects.
In the initial phase of this agreement, Sumitomo and its partners will collaborate with H2Pro on operations for H2Pro's technology pilot and demonstration, and will supply H2Pro with various manufacturing equipment through its extensive network. In turn, H2Pro will provide Sumitomo with data to support the latter’s strategic planning for its pipeline of green hydrogen projects.
By the second half of this decade, Sumitomo plans to incorporate H2Pro's electrolyzer technology, both within and outside its group, toward the production of several hundred tons of green hydrogen per day.
Japan, which lacks continuous access to local renewables such as solar and wind, will rely heavily on green hydrogen and ammonia to augment its clean energy supply as it decarbonises multiple sectors, H2Pro said.
