H&R GmbH & Co. KGaA wins prize in the Responsible Care competition of VCI Nord

- Pilot plant to prepare the market launch of climate-neutral specialty chemical products is rewarded with 2nd place

Salzbergen, Germany, June 2nd, 2021. H&R GmbH & Co. KGaA earned second place in the Responsible Care competition organized by the Chemical Industry Association North (VCI Nord) with a pilot project for the production of sustainable synthetic products. A power-to-liquids process applied by the company uses the self-produced hydrogen (by electrolysis from green electricity) as well as high-purity biogenic carbon dioxide. The company thereby produces sustainable chemical specialties such as waxes, in addition to the sustainable fuels required to achieve the national climate targets.
The project named "NextGate" by H&R is able to produce around 200 tons of e-fuels and around 150 tons of waxes per year, for applications in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and the food industry. They are first tested by laboratory analysis and tried out using exemplary utilizations. A market launch in which limited quantities of fuel are sold at gas stations and waxes are supplied to individual wholesale customers is also planned and will demonstrate possible applications. "Based on our already existing hydrogen generating capacity at the Hamburg location and through the use of highly innovative synthesis technology, we will support our claim to leadership in the implementation of climate-friendly product solutions", says H&R's Managing Director Niels H. Hansen. With the project, the company supports the further development of PtX technologies and enables its customers to transform themselves towards climate-neutral products. "In addition, we are gaining important knowledge about further processing steps and future applications for the components produced. At the same time, we are also creating conditions for the use of sustainably produced hydrocarbons on an industrial scale", adds Detlev Wösten, Chief Sustainability Officer of H&R.
