State-backed Sinopec is ready to launch its first green hydrogen project in Inner Mongolia next year as part of an effort to help meet its goal of becoming China’s top hydrogen company by 2025.

The 2.6 billion yuan ($405 million) green hydrogen plant in Ordos, which will use solar and wind, is designed to have a yearly production capacity of 20,000 tonnes.

The first phase will involve 10,000 tonnes hydrogen production, supported by 270 megawatts (MW) of solar power and 50 MW of wind power.

The green hydrogen will be consumed by Sinopec’s Zhongtian Hechuang coal-to-chemicals project in Ordos.

Sinopec, China’s largest hydrogen producer, also said it will focus on fossil fuel-based hydrogen production over the next five years and set up 1,000 hydrogen filling stations across the country, as part of its target to be carbon neutral by 2050.

Sinopec currently has yearly hydrogen production capacity of 3.5 million tonnes, mainly grey hydrogen as a by-product from its refineries, making up about 14% of total hydrogen production in China.
