THE PLAGAZI PROCESS IS LABELLED AS GREEN
Original date: May 5, 2021
Plagazi can announce a major corporate milestone; the hydrogen produced via the patented Plagazi processes has been labelled as green with a negative CO2 footprint. In Q4 2020, Plagazi contracted DNV, a world-renowned certification advisor to the renewable energy industry, to complete an independent Life Cycle Analysis of the holistic Plagazi production process. The goal was to evaluate its CO2 footprint and to compare it against the industry’s definition of green hydrogen.
Why is it important to officially be considered as a green hydrogen production process?
It highlights the ability to produce hydrogen sustainably and showcases how Plagazi plays a major role in providing energy sources which contributes to a clean and healthy environment. Moreover, a negative CO2 footprint refers to a process which is a net reducer of emissions when compared to existing recycling and production processes.
In the Life Cycle Analysis, performed by DNV, the Plagazi process CO2 footprint was compared to the existing definitions of green hydrogen, established by EU taxonomy, TÜV SÜD, and CertifHy, and in all cases, the hydrogen produced was certified to have a lower CO2 footprint and is therefore green.
“It’s a major milestone for the company. Having one of the world’s leading certification bodies, DNV, classifying our hydrogen production processes as green, shows the untapped potential of the Plagazi process. It proves the fact that Plagazi can produce sustainable energy from unrecyclable waste.” – Torsten Granberg, CEO Plagazi.
Plagazi are proud to have worked with DNV as they are a highly valued technical advisor to the hydrogen industry and delivers world-renowned certification and advisory services to the energy value chain including renewables and energy management.
