The Anonymous Widower

Green Hydrogen Companies Are Going Public To The Delight Of Investors

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Fuel News.

The article discusses the IPO of the ThyssenKrupp subsidiary; Nucera.

There is more in this article on Reuters, which is entitled Betting On Hydrogen Hype, Thyssenkrupp Eyes $687 mln In IPO Cash.

I have a feeling, that this would not be an investment for widows and orphans, but this widower may know enough to have a small punt at the right price.

  1. Electrolysers are going to be a crowded market.

    • But the world is going to need TWs of hydrogen production capacity.

      I won’t be selling my ITM Power shares yet.

      • I wouldn’t suggest you should sell, it’s just that I’m aware that there are 3 technologies involved in creating electrolysers, each with its technical and economical advantages and disadvantages, and each at different stages development.
        Thyssenkrupp’s website says….”Current discussions on water electrolysis include mainly two different methods – alkaline water electrolysis and PEM water electrolysis. We are specialized on the water electrolysis process.” Does that mean one or the other, or both and will Solid Oxide electrolysers eventually supercede these?
        It certainly looks as though you’re better off in the business of making electrolysers if you’re well funded.
        As you say only invest if you know enough about the prospects.

  2. When I worked at ICI Mond Division around 1970, most of their hydrogen was produced by the electrolysis of brine using the Castner-Kellner process. It was a nasty process as it used a lot of mercury. One of my jobs was building an analyser to detect mercury in urine, as the mercury got into the air and operatives breathed it in. But ICI had another process, that used hand-built concrete cells with carbon electrodes that if I remember correctly produced high grade chlorine and sodium carbonate. There are several ways to electrolyse water to make hydrogen. It all depends, what other products you want from the electrolysis. ICI wanted chlorine, but if you were fuelling rockets, you might want oxygen.
