China’s Sinopec has begun producing green hydrogen at a plant in the western region of Xinjiang.

Sinopec’s first green hydrogen facility has the capacity to produce 20,000 tonnes of hydrogen a year, using solar power to electrolyse water. It can also store 210,000 m³ of hydrogen and transmit 28,000 m³ per hour.

The plant, in Kuqa city in Xinjiang, is China’s first solar green hydrogen facility with an annual capacity of more than 10,000 tonnes, making it the largest green hydrogen facility operating in China.

Hydrogen produced at the facility will be supplied to Sinopec’s Tahe refinery to replace hydrogen produced from natural gas.
