The largest operator of electrolysis technology in Europe, INEOS Inovyn, has announced that it has achieved a new ISCC certification, reflecting its ambition to reduce carbon emissions.

It makes INEOS Inovyn the first certified company in Europe to have its required greenhouse gas data fully audited, providing added value to customers by enabling the traceability of sustainable materials along supply chains. Customers using our renewable hydrogen will now be able to develop sustainable downstream products which benefit from this certification – along with reducing their Scope 3 emissions.

The compnay’s Antwerp site produces hydrogen through Chlor-Alkali electrolysis – the electrolysis of brine producing chlorine, caustic soda/potash, sodium hypochlorite and hydrogen. The electricity used to produce this hydrogen comes directly from wind turbines off Belgium’s North Coast.

‘We use renewable electricity from existing and local Power Purchase Agreements to produce renewable hydrogen. I’m proud that our hydrogen is now labelled renewable-energy-derived material and hope this drives the market towards greater sustainability. Hydrogen produced from the Chlor-Alkali industry is vital as the European hydrogen market grows, this ISCC PLUS certification means there is only one product on the market today with robust and transparent sustainability credentials,’ explains Wouter Bleukx, business director hydrogen at INEOS Inovyn.
