The green hydrogen plant in Százhalombatta, with a 10 megawatt electrolysis unit built by Plug Power, will produce approximately 1,600 tonnes of pure, carbon-neutral green hydrogen per year.

The €22 million investment will reduce the Danube Refinery’s carbon footprint by more than 25,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year.

The new technology will gradually replace the gas-based production process, which currently accounts for one-sixth of the MOL Group’s total carbon dioxide emissions.

The plant will begin production in the second half of 2024. MOL will primarily use green hydrogen in its own fuel production network.

The electrolysis equipment, which uses renewable electricity to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, was supplied by Plug Power.

The investment is in line with the MOL Group’s SHAPE TOMORROW corporate strategy, which aims to make the region more sustainable, competitive and self-sufficient.

The group is already planning to build additional green hydrogen production plants in Rijeka and Bratislava.
