Power-to-X refers to the process of using electrolysis to split water into hydrogen and oxygen using electricity. The produced hydrogen, a versatile, safe and clean energy carrier, can then be used as a fuel for power as well as an energy feedstock for several industries. The power-to-X process allows the conversion of renewable electricity into storable hydrogen fuel thus allowing the beneficial spread of carbon-neutral energy across multiple sectors.
The potential economic benefits of renewable power-to-X is increasingly well-recognized. Hydrogen compression is at the core of the technologies required to improve the feasibility of this industry.
Howden offers a wide range of compression technologies such as diaphragm, reciprocating, centrifugal and screw compressors that meet every application’s requirements.
