Sustainability & Climate Protection

Interview with hydrogen expert Dr Christoph Noeres

In a personal interview Dr Christoph Noeres, Head of Green Hydrogen, answers all questions around the subject of the production and use of hydrogen at thyssenkrupp

#GreenJobs: Sustainability as a Vocation

We at thyssenkrupp are already making every effort to ensure sustainable production in the future regarding the energy transition.

Slewing bearings – in the service of wind energy

Huge components - built to withstand extreme forces: Learn more about the design of slewing bearings and the forces they are subjected to in wind turbines.

The Ruhr region – A new Hydrogen Valley

The Ruhr region has the best prerequisites for becoming the new Hydrogen Valley. With its density of production sites and advantageous infrastructure, it can become the main hub of Germany's hydrogen economy.

Reducing waste – increasing sustainability together

How can waste in production be reduced or – even better – prevented? Read on to find out more about the tools Cornelia Spanka uses in her work and why she thinks thyssenkrupp is underrated.

Ammonia in agriculture: The engine of plant growth

Green ammonia in plant nutrient protects crops and counteracts overfertilization.

Wind turbines - Our key components

Some are visible from the outside on wind turbines, others provide stability and optimum power transmission deep inside: Our Big 3 for wind power.

A perfect match: hydropower plants & water electrolysis

To turn a version of a modern water electrolysis plant for the production of hydrogen on an industrial scale into reality, thyssenkrupp is working with the Canadian company Hydro-Québec. Together they want to produce the energy carrier of tomorrow in a sustainable way.

Green steel: Review of phase 1 of the injection trials

Hydrogen instead of carbon. Just over a year has passed since the world premiere of the use of hydrogen in ongoing blast furnace operations. What has happened in this first phase of the trials? We provide an overview.

More sustainability for the cement industry

Climate polluter cement? How we make cement plants ready for the Green Deal - with the polysius® product family from thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions.

The Revolution of Green Methanol

With the ongoing climate crisis, alternative energy sources and fuels are becoming more and more important. Among them is green methanol. This is how it turned around from a CO2-heavy pollutant to a green solution with the potential for an environmentally friendly future.

Renewable energies as an enabler

We are already working on promising technologies to make steel production sustainable.

Recycling in an endless loop

Tinplate cans are one of the most environmentally friendly packaging materials of all.

Carbon2Chem: when emissions become valuable substances

With our innovative technology Carbon2Chem we convert climate-damaging CO2 into valuable raw materials.

Innovation in deep-sea fishing

With oXeanpedia we make a small contribution to minimize the impact of fishing on the ecology of the oceans.

Green steel: Review of phase 1 of the injection trials

Hydrogen instead of carbon. Just over a year has passed since the world premiere of the use of hydrogen in ongoing blast furnace operations. What has happened in this first phase of the trials? We provide an overview.

Food waste: the pressure is on

In Germany, a whopping 55 kilograms of food per person end up in the garbage can instead of on the table every year.

Three technologies for a successful energy turnaround

Before we can look back on a successful energy turnaround, there are still some challenges to be mastered.

#climateneutral: National hydrogen strategy – not a journey to tackle alone

The national hydrogen strategy is to establish hydrogen as an energy carrier. Here are the most important facts.

Green hydrogen for green steel: Paving the way to Hydrogen Valley

thyssenkrupp aims to be climate neutral by 2050. To achieve this we are gradually converting our steel production to direct reduction with climate-neutral hydrogen. For the transformation to succeed, large quantities of the light H2 molecule are needed. Together with the energy company STEAG we are taking the first step toward a local hydrogen economy in the Ruhr region.

Our contribution to the Green Deal

The Green Deal is intended to make Europe climate-neutral and fit for a sustainable future by the middle of the century. We put ourselves to the test and looked at which components of the Green Deal thyssenkrupp is already fulfilling.

The path of green hydrogen

The light H2 molecule could become the key to a successful energy transition. If it is "green".
