Topsoe, Fidelis form global alliance for carbon-neutral hydrogen technology
Topsoe and Fidelis New Energy LLC have entered into a global alliance for technology used for producing carbon-neutral hydrogen.
The alliance pairs Topsoe’s hydrogen-process portfolio with FidelisH2™ technology for reduction of lifecycle-carbon emissions in hydrogen production.
Combined, the alliance solution enables the production of hydrogen from natural gas with a lifecycle-carbon intensity of 0 kgCO2e/kgH2.
Producing decarbonized products, materials and fuels through proven technologies such as the Topsoe Blue Portfolio and FidelisH2 is a critical contribution to decarbonizing carbon-intense sectors of society, including industry, digital infrastructure, agriculture, energy and transportation.
Topsoe and Fidelis are dedicated to continue to play their roles in this important endeavor to accelerate the energy transition and to join forces to provide an offering for lifecycle carbon-neutral hydrogen utilizing renewables and natural gas.
Fidelis and Topsoe will jointly and exclusively license FidelisH2™ alongside Topsoe’s blue-hydrogen technology portfolio.
Topsoe will lead engagement with potential licensees interested in utilizing FidelisH2™ to produce carbon-neutral hydrogen at world scale using proven technologies.
“This is an exciting partnership to lead the way to achieve net zero in 2050,” said Henrik Rasmussen, Topsoe’s managing director for the Americas. “I look forward to working with Fidelis in setting the bar high regarding transitional energy technologies. With this alliance, we can offer clients across all industrial sectors a proven and exceptional carbon-neutral hydrogen solution.”
Dan Shapiro, co-founder and CEO of Fidelis, said, “We are excited to partner with Topsoe, the leading provider of hydrogen-production technology and catalysts. After several years of work with Topsoe leadership, catalysts and technologies, we are pleased to formally join forces with them through this Global Alliance Agreement to deliver carbon-neutral hydrogen produced from Topsoe’s Blue Portfolio and the innovative and novel FidelisH2™ process.”
Bengt Jarlsjo, Fidelis co-founder and chief operating officer, added, “We look forward to deploying FidelisH2™ across our future projects and to providing other select users a path to zero-carbon intensity clean hydrogen utilizing certified natural gas and renewable energy.”
Topsoe’s industry-leading hydrogen-process portfolio includes both steam-methane reforming and SynCOR™ autothermal-reforming solutions to produce hydrogen with integrated carbon capture.
FidelisH2™ is a proprietary solution for incorporation of renewable energy into reforming processes to achieve clean-hydrogen production.
The novel integration of these proven technologies offered through the alliance provides a scalable solution well suited for generating valuable climate and environmental incentives such as the 45V tax credits provided in the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.
