ENGIE to provide green hydrogen to methionine project

February 10, 2021 |

In France, animal nutrition company ADISSEO and ENGIE Solutions are working together on the CASHEMIR project, which aims to reduce the carbon footprint of the production of methionine, an amino acid essential for animal nutrition through the production and use of green hydrogen. This industrial innovation could be launched in 2022 on the ADISSEO site of Roches-de-Condrieu, in south-east France.

To meet the growing food demand, the ADISSEO Group develops its industrial units to product methionine while reducing its environmental impact. To achieve this goal, the industrial synthesis of methionine requires access to the hydrogen element. The CASHEMIR project involves the construction, by ENGIE Solutions, of a green hydrogen production unit powering ADISSEO’s production lines. This approach is completely in line with the European ambitions of the Green Deal.

The project envisages the production of 2000 metric tons per year of green hydrogen by electrolysis.

This process uses water as the only raw material and a renewable electricity provided under a contract that guarantees supply from identified sites. The entire chain will be secured by blockchain technology, ensuring the traceability of green energy, which will be a first for such high volumes.
