Hydrogen is used as feedstock in many (bio)chemical refining processes for processing or upgrading refining products. It is a key building block in regular fuels and bio-fuels.
In food processing, hydrogen is used for a hydrogenating agent, particularly in increasing the level of saturation of unsaturated fats and oils (found in items such as margarine).
Used as a fuel, hydrogen enables zero emission mobility. Hydrogen mobility is a small but increasing share of total mobility solutions.
Hydrogen can also be used directly as a carbon free energy carrier to provide (back-up) power and heat.
Ammonia, used in for instance fertilizers, is comprised of hydrogen and nitrogen.
AkzoNobel is a member of Hydrogen Europe the leading European industry association and national hydrogen associations.
