The US chlor-alkali industry is facing a significant shift. Historically, the sector has produced chlorine primarily through diaphragm technology. However, a recent EPA ban on asbestos imports for chlor-alkali production necessitates a transition for many plants in the United States. This move towards asbestos-free production methods has led to the increased implementation of membrane technology in the chlor-alkali industry.


thyssenkrupp nucera offers state-of-the-art chlor-alkali technologies: Bipolar Membrane (BM) Single Element technology, Bipolar Ion-Exchange Membrane Process Electrolyzer (BiTAC), and NaCl Oxygen-Depolarized Cathode Electrolysis technology (NaCl-ODC). Let’s take a closer look at each of these technologies and their benefits.


In the quest for a more sustainable future, the demand for green hydrogen production technologies is on the rise. Among the various options available, Solid Oxide Electrolyzer Cells (SOEC) and Alkaline Water Electrolysis (AWE) are two prominent technologies to be considered for the process of water electrolysis. Choosing the right technology is crucial to ensure efficiency and cost-effectiveness. In this blog post, we will delve into the details of both SOEC and AWE, providing a comprehensive comparison to help you make an informed decision for your green transformation needs.


The Holland Hydrogen 1 project, which has been recognized as the 2024 World Hydrogen Awards “Clean Hydrogen Project of the Year” by the Sustainable Energy Council, brings together thyssenkrupp nucera’s electrolysis know-how, Shell’s knowledge of the energy system, and the port’s infrastructure to build a ground-breaking 200 MW green hydrogen facility in Rotterdam.


At thyssenkrupp nucera, “safety first” is more than a principle we embrace on World Day for Safety and Health at Work—it’s a philosophy that guides what we do each and every day. We are committed to ensuring safety for our customers, our co-workers, ourselves and our families. Our teams have a clear understanding: Safety starts with each of us, which means stopping any unsafe activity and taking action to make it safe.


It has been 55 years since a massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California, prompted Senator Gaylord Nelson to propose a national teach-in to protest environmental ignorance and demand action to protect the planet. A pivotal moment in environmental history, Earth Day has since grown into a global phenomenon, with more than 190 countries participating in activities to promote sustainability each year on April 22.


Power-to-X (PtX) technology is at the forefront of the energy transition, transforming green electricity into vital energy carriers such as hydrogen, synthetic fuels, or chemicals, from green electricity. How does PtX work? And why do we need it?
