TUV Rheinland announced the award of the world’s first green hydrogen and green ammonia certificates to Green Hydrogen & Chemicals SPC for the production of green hydrogen and green ammonia as part of the Greenfield Project, an Oman-based photovoltaic-powered hydrogen-ammonia plant with a planned capacity of 1.2 million tons of green ammonia.

Green Hydrogen & Chemicals SPC, a 50:50 joint venture between ACME Group and Scatec ASA, has been evaluated and found to meet all criteria for the full Greenfield Project, based on the established production methods, transportation methods, and hydrogen applications. TUV Rheinland’s carbon-neutral hydrogen certification demonstrates that hydrogen is supplied to the recipient in a climate-neutral manner, regardless of the stage of hydrogen generation, distribution, and use.

TUV Rheinland enables stakeholders to ensure that ammonia and hydrogen produced from regenerative sources emit significantly less greenhouse gas than conventional hydrogen or fossil fuels by providing Green Hydrogen and Green Ammonia Certification (TUV Rheinland Standard H2.21 Carbon-Neutral Hydrogen).

Mr. Rajat Seksaria, CEO of ACME Group said, “We are proud to be the recipient of the world’s first Green Hydrogen Certification from TUV Rheinland. This certificate will enhance our capability to cater to international markets across Europe, America and Asia region for the supply of Green Ammonia. We have already started work on the Oman plant and are on track to commission the world’s first large-scale green ammonia project. Green accreditation from leading agencies such as TUV Rheinland is an important milestone in our efforts.”

Commenting on the issuance of the first such certificate globally, Mr. Benedikt Anselmann, Regional Executive Vice President, India, Middle East & Africa, TUV Rheinland said, “Hydrogen can help tackle several energy challenges we are currently facing and it has the potential to achieve a clean, secure and affordable energy future. We at TUV Rheinland are committed to contributing to a future that meets the needs of both mankind and the environment in a sustainable manner by supporting the development of Hydrogen as the energy carrier of the future.” He added, “We are proud to issue the first ever Green Hydrogen and Green Ammonia certificate to Green Hydrogen & Chemicals SPC as per TUV Rheinland Standard H2.21 Carbon-Neutral Hydrogen.”

Mr. V Ravi Kumar, Vice President, Industrial Services, TUV Rheinland India said, “Hydrogen plays a critical role in energy transformation and the demand is increasing worldwide. In our TUV Rheinland Standard H2.21, we have specified requirements that allow a certification of the Product Carbon Footprint as less than or equal to zero. In addition, based on the ‘Carbon-Neutral Hydrogen’ certification, by fulfilling other specific criteria, optional additional criteria can be certified such as Green Hydrogen, Blue Hydrogen, Turquoise Hydrogen, RED II compliant Hydrogen.”
