TotalEnergies to drive the decarbonisation of its European refineries

Global Hydrogen Review,

As part of the drive to decarbonise its European refineries, TotalEnergies is launching a call for tenders for the supply of 500 000 tpy of green hydrogen. The use of green hydrogen should avoid the emission of around 5 million tpy of CO2 each year from the company's European refineries by 2030.

TotalEnergies has six refineries in Europe – Antwerp (Belgium), Leuna (Germany), Zeeland (the Netherlands), Normandy, Donges and Feyzin (France) – as well as two biorefineries in La Mède and Grandpuits (France), all of which use hydrogen. The Company wants to replace 500 000 tpy of this hydrogen consumed in its refineries with green hydrogen produced with renewable energies by 2030. This is a major step towards achieving TotalEnergies' objective of reducing the net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions directly linked to its oil and gas operations (Scopes 1+2) by 40% by 2030 compared to 2015 levels.

Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and CEO of TotalEnergies, said: "This massive call for tenders is fully aligned with TotalEnergies' ambition to decarbonise all of the hydrogen used in its European refineries by 2030. Alongside other green and low-carbon hydrogen production projects that the company is already undertaking at La Mède, Grandpuits, Leuna and Normandy, we are now approaching third-party providers to supply us with green hydrogen to accelerate the decarbonisation of our operations. As a consequence, by offering to various worldwide suppliers the opportunity to secure medium- and long-term contracts with TotalEnergies, we trust we will benefit from the most competitive solutions they have developed."
