HECO2®: green hydrogen in the ceramic sector

Science and analytical models show unequivocally that the climate change is ongoing and further changes are at this point inevitable. The average temperature of planet is increasing approx. 1,1°C from 1880, with marked climax in some areas (for examples +5°C at North Pole during last century), speeding up some important transformations in the ecosystem and making some extrem events more frequent and more severe. The global and European aims for 2030 (European Green Deal) focus on a progressive and complete decarbonization of the system (“Net-Zero at 2050”). The green hydrogen occupies a unique position for contributing to environmental targets, especially in “hard-to-abate” industrial sectors, such as ceramic one, in which often lacks scalable electrification options. Italforni strongly believes in the use of green hydrogen produced on site and, thanks to an intense activity of research begun in 2019, now is the first in the world that can offer a safe and efficient solution: HECO2®.
