Promoted by the Regional Government of Andalusia, through the Regional Ministry of Industrial Policy and Energy, the objective is to create an ecosystem that energises and ensures the structured and efficient development of the hydrogen value chain.
- Grupo Fertiberia has joined the Andalusian Green Hydrogen Alliance promoted by the Regional Government of Andalusia, through the Regional Ministry of Industrial Policy and Energy, with the aim of consolidating public-private collaboration in this field and promoting, from a global and practical approach, clean technology markets.
The Regional Government of Andalusia has invited Grupo Fertiberia to join this initiative, which was presented in Seville on 29 March as part of its policy to promote the decarbonisation of the economy and strength regional industry. As stated at the event, held at the Palacio de San Telmo, headquarters of the Andalusian Government, the objective of the Andalusian Green Hydrogen Alliance is to facilitate the creation of an ecosystem in Andalusia, energising and ensuring the structured and efficient development of the hydrogen value chain, promoting its industry and contributing to achieving the Andalusian territory’s energy and climate objectives towards decarbonisation.
As part of its commitment to be the first company in its sector to be carbon neutral by 2035, Grupo Fertiberia has developed a strategy to lead the green hydrogen value chain in Europe, with cutting-edge projects to move forward in industrial decarbonisation and the manufacture of green ammonia and sustainable fertilisers from the use of renewable energy sources. To this end, the company has forged alliances with European leaders in the energy market so that its main production centres form part of the main consortia associated with the development of green hydrogen in industry.
Grupo Fertiberia has already become the first company to produce green ammonia and fertilisers on an industrial scale in Europe from its Puertollano plant thanks to the use of green hydrogen. The company has also recently announced an alliance with Cepsa, as they are two of the companies that currently consume the most hydrogen in Spain, to decarbonise their production processes through the joint development of a large-scale renewable hydrogen plant in Huelva using green energy and other renewable gases. The agreement reached will allow optimisation of the hydrogen and biogenic CO2 needs of the facilities of both companies in the industrial base of Palos de la Frontera (Huelva) and will enable the manufacture of advanced biofuels as well as of ammonia, AdBlue and sustainable fertilisers.
