Test facility project.

Where?

Speyer.

The German government's goal of achieving greenhouse gas neutrality by 2045 emphasizes the importance of sector coupling and the development of a hydrogen economy. Our joint project supports these goals by researching decentralized hydrogen production from biogenic residues using our patented bhyo hydrogen technology.

Climate-responsive future.

The bhyo test facility represents a significant step towards a climate-resilient future and plays a central role in our strategy to achieve the German government's climate targets. It is the linchpin for the investigation and further development of bhyo hydrogen technology, a method for producing hydrogen from biogenic residues. The focus of the plant is on maximizing efficiency in order to not only provide pure energy in the form of hydrogen, but also to make sensible use of the waste heat generated and effectively bind CO2 from the process, which should significantly improve the carbon footprint.

Schedule.

Our tried-and-tested test facility will move to a new location, where it will continue its valuable work. The aim is to have it completely rebuilt and ready for operation by the first or second quarter of 2024. Once the construction is complete, the intensive test phase will begin, during which our experts will collect important data over a period of two years. These findings will serve as the basis for our continuous research and development and will be used to improve the plant technology. The entire process is designed to be efficient and results-oriented and is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2026.

Our partners.

The project benefits from close cooperation with leading institutions and companies. Our partners, which include the DBFZ, DBI Gas- und Umwelttechnik GmbH, the Fraunhofer Institute ISI, Stadtwerke Speyer and TH Bingen, make a decisive contribution to the success of our efforts to create an economically viable and ecologically sustainable hydrogen economy with their expertise and resources.

Supported by the BMWK.

The innovative bhyo project is supported with funds from the 7th Energy Research Program of the Federal Republic of Germany by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate (BMWK). This funding reflects the confidence in the viability and potential of our technology to make a substantial contribution to sector coupling and to achieving greenhouse gas neutrality by 2045. It is a confirmation of the importance of innovative approaches in the field of renewable energies and strengthens bhyo's commitment to advancing pioneering solutions in hydrogen technology.

The BMWK's commitment enables us to push ahead with research and development under optimal conditions while keeping a constant eye on the goal of realizing a low-emission energy market. With this support, we can focus on increasing system performance while minimizing environmental impact.
