Topsoe is committed to establishing a leadership position in the expanding green hydrogen market, which the International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates has the potential to meet 17% of world energy demand by 2050.
Topsoe offers a unique end-to-end portfolio of green hydrogen production via electrolysis and associated downstream production of ammonia, methanol, and e-fuels. This portfolio enables clients to benefit from high-value products, efficient transportation and storage, and high yields.
“At the core of our efforts is our capability to turn renewable power into essential carbon-neutral fuels and chemicals. We have Topsoe’s leading electrolysis technology, now we add the fully focused organization and leadership needed to realize its true potential. I am thrilled to welcome Chokri Mousaoui as Executive Vice President and head of the organization. Chokri brings great leadership and commercial experience from a highly successful tech startup and will lead our work to accelerate the commercialization of our green hydrogen business,” says Roeland Baan, CEO at Topsoe.
“I am impressed with Topsoe’s bold vision of being recognized as the global leader in carbon emission reduction technologies by 2024. Not least because the company truly has what it takes to make an exceptional contribution to move the energy transition forward. I really look forward to working together with the talented people here to commercialize our green hydrogen offerings and bring them to the market fast. The demand for innovative solutions is significant and growing,” says Chokri Mousaoui, Executive Vice President at Topsoe.
Topsoe stated in March that it would construct a large-scale SOEC electrolyzer manufacturing facility to address client demand for environmentally friendly hydrogen production. When the facility becomes active in 2023, it will create electrolysis stacks with a capacity of 500 MW per year, scalable to 5 GW. The industrial-scale electrolyzers will utilize Topsoe’s patented SOEC high-temperature electrolysis technology, which produces 30% more hydrogen than traditional electrolysis technologies.
