Genvia, a Schlumberger Joint Venture in Clean Hydrogen Technology, Signs Pilot Project Agreements in Steel and Cement, Supporting the Decarbonization of Critical Industry Sectors

Nov 18, 2021

Genvia announces pilot projects with industry leaders that will scale technologies and accelerate the decarbonization of multiple industrial sectors November 18, 2021 07:00 AM Eastern Standard Time PARIS--( BUSINESS WIRE )--Schlumberger New Energy, the CEA and partners have announced the signature of pilot project agreements between Genvia and critical-industry leaders on the pathway to net zero in the cement and steel industries. Through these agreements, Genvia will scale up the next generation of electrolyzer technology, developed over two decades of R&D at the CEA, to produce clean hydrogen without CO2 emissions, accelerating the decarbonization of multiple industrial sectors. During an official visit to the Schlumberger and Genvia facility on November 16, French President Emmanuel Macron praised the joint public-private partnership and reiterated his commitment and ambition for the hydrogen economy. Leveraging Schlumberger’s industrialization expertise and global footprint, these new agreements will set the stage for developing the entire value chain to use hydrogen as the preferred clean energy carrier. “The agreements are important steps in accelerating the deployment of Genvia technology that will support the future hydrogen economy,” said Ashok Belani, executive vice president, Schlumberger New Energy. “As a scalable, carbon-free energy carrier, clean hydrogen will play a critical role in meeting global energy transition and net-zero ambitions. Genvia will accelerate the large-scale adoption of clean hydrogen through its demonstrator projects in different industries.” Genvia's pilot projects will focus on efficiency, performance and decarbonization of industrial processes for the steel and cement industries, as follows: Genvia and ArcelorMittal Méditerranée, a subsidiary of ArcelorMittal, a world leader in the steel industry, have agreed a pilot project to substitute current hydrogen use, and support the decarbonization of high-performance electric steel production required for the electric vehicle industry. Genvia and Ugitech, part of Swiss Steel Group, a world leader in long stainless-steel products, have agreed a pilot project to demonstrate both the technical relevance of hydrogen as a clean fuel for a reheating furnace that can replace natural gas, and the economic efficiency of Genvia's technology. Genvia; Vicat, a cement production group; Hynamics, a low-carbon and renewable hydrogen solutions subsidiary of EDF group; and EDF research have agreed a pilot project focused on the optimization of Genvia’s technology for industrial applications, demonstrated in the cement sector. Genvia technology aims to achieve the highest system efficiency, resulting in significantly less electricity use per kilogram of hydrogen produced. The projects are expected to produce hydrogen in amounts ranging from 200kg to 600kg per day. About Genvia Genvia is a clean hydrogen technology venture created to enable individual organizations, industries and nations to meet their goals for decarbonization by accelerating affordable clean hydrogen production, energy storage and fuel applications at scale. The company represents a unique combination of French science and global engineering, and benefits from the strength of a group of partner companies that include the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), Schlumberger New Energy, VINCI Construction, Vicat Group and the Occitanie Region.
