The Group holds significant quantities of hydrogen from coke oven gas produced at its coking plants. Hydrogen is a promising fuel used to power fuel cells that generate electric and thermal energy, emitting water vapour only.
JSW Innowacje has undertaken activities intended to procure technology for separating hydrogen from coke oven gas from foreign markets (Germany, China, Japan). At the same time, JSW Innowacje has begun to work with a domestic provider of hydrogen separation technology to prepare assumptions for the construction of a pilot installation. This is intended to develop technology for separating hydrogen from coke oven gas and obtaining own, domestic know-how for this technology.
JSW Innowacje S.A. has also established cooperation with suppliers of hydrogen-powered fuel cells (Ballard, Hydrogenics) in order to develop assumptions for the project.
