H2eron is a planned 40-megawatt green hydrogen plant in the Netherlands and a first important step towards decarbonization of the aviation industry.
Sustainable aviation fuel
H2eron will use electrolyzers from Norwegian company Nel to produce up to 6,000 tons of green hydrogen per year from renewable power and water.
The hydrogen will be used by SkyNRG to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), made from industrial byproducts and residue streams, such as used cooking oil. In its pure form, the use of SAF results in 85% lower carbon emissions compared to fossil jet fuel, across its lifecycle.
HyCC received the environmental permit for the project in 2022 and is working towards the final investment decision (FID) in 2024, in close alignment with SkyNRG and its partners.
H2eron is part of the "Hydrogen Valley" an initiative of a broad coalition of public and private parties to realize large-scale production, storage, and distribution of green hydrogen as a raw material for industry, the built environment and mobility. The initiative is supported by the Clean Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (CHJU) of the European Commission.
