BP green hydrogen project needs Germany to update laws to reflect GHG savings

October 11, 2016 |

In Germany, BP is trying to secure legislative changes that would facilitate its work with Germany’s Uniper to produce “green hydrogen” at the oil major’s refinery in Lingen. Produced when renewable energy meets hydrolysing water, the gas produced has 90% fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to its fossil fuel-based counterpart but the law doesn’t yet recognize the carbon credits the companies feel should be applied to the project. Uniper operates two similar facilities in Falkenhagen and Hamburg.
