Using hydrogen power to decarbonize industry

Power from green hydrogen will play a critical role in decarbonization of the industrial landscape. Verdagy electrolyzer technology is accelerating the adoption of hydrogen within steel, oil & gas, mining, chemical, and energy industries.


Hydrogen has the potential to provide 20% of the global energy supply

Hydrogen power will nourish
green industries

Green hydrogen is expected to become a primary source of clean energy for almost 20% of the global energy supply (per the Hydrogen Council). Unlike today’s hydrogen produced from fossil fuels, green hydrogen plants will use electrolyzers powered by renewable energy. Verdagy is designing and engineering large-scale electrolyzers that generate hydrogen at scale, driving economics that make it easier for industry to replace fossil fuel with hydrogen.

Designed to scale up and fit within industrial facilities

Verdagy is engineering the industry’s lowest CapEx and highest efficiency electrolyzer solutions – achieving best-in-class levelized costs of hydrogen (LCOH) for our customers. We only focus on large-scale electrolyzers and have demonstrated speed to scale at the pilot plant level.

Verdagy is addressing the largest near-term markets and helping customers transition to green hydrogen and replacing their CO₂ and GHG emitting production assets.

Hydrogen power for green steel

Steel manufacturing comprises around 8% of total global emissions, according to the World Economic Forum. That’s more than any other industrial segment. The principal culprits are the enormous furnaces burning coal or natural gas. Green steel operations can replace those fossil fuels with green hydrogen generated using renewable energy. Achieving low LCOH at large scale, as Verdagy is doing, is critical to making decarbonizing steel possible.

Decarbonizing oil & gas operations

Most of today’s industrial hydrogen is generated using fossil fuels, consuming 6% of natural gas supply and 2% of coal supply worldwide. Decarbonizing hydrogen production in the oil & gas industry depends on switching to green hydrogen generated with renewable energy. Verdagy engineers its electrolyzers to do this cost- and energy-efficiently. Hydrogen fuel can also offset some of the carbon footprint from transportation of oil and gas products.

Green hydrogen replaces
fossil fuels in mining

Within the mining sector, transportation and energy storage are seen as primary use applications of green hydrogen. Using cost-efficient electrolyzers like that of Verdagy’s, mining firms will be able to produce their own green hydrogen locally in on-site infrastructure, avoiding the need for long-term storage and distribution.

Green hydrogen as chemical industry feedstock and fuel

The chemical industry uses fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) not simply as sources of energy, but also as feedstocks that are transformed into finished products. Green hydrogen can help reduce carbon emissions from high-heat processes and can replace natural gas used in the generation of ammonia.

Hydrogen power for the energy infrastructure

Green hydrogen has innumerable uses to help store and deliver power across the energy infrastructure. Fuel cells can convert hydrogen into electricity wherever it is needed: in stationary applications such as backup power sources and mobile uses such as warehouse equipment and electric vehicles. Unlike batteries, hydrogen fuel cells don’t need to be recharged and won’t run down. 

To date, large-scale storage and transportation of green hydrogen has been challenging and expensive. Now excitement is growing about converting hydrogen into ammonia which can be easily distributed using existing infrastructure. This green ammonia can itself be used as a fuel or converted back into green hydrogen at the point of use.

Prepared to partner with innovators

Verdagy electrolyzers will scale up the challenges of each of these industries. We are already working with our first partners and customers to engineer green hydrogen plants for their unique needs.
