TotalEnergies launches a Call for Tenders for the Supply of 500,000 tons per year of Green Hydrogen
As part of the drive to decarbonize its European refineries, TotalEnergies is launching a call for tenders for the supply of 500,000 tons per year of green hydrogen. The use of green hydrogen should avoid the emission of around five million tons of CO2 each year from the Company's European refineries by 2030.
TotalEnergies has six refineries in Europe – Antwerp (Belgium), Leuna (Germany), Zeeland (Netherlands), Normandy, Donges and Feyzin (France) – as well as two biorefineries in La Mède and Grandpuits (France), all of which use hydrogen. The Company wants to replace 500,000 tons per year of this hydrogen consumed in its refineries with green hydrogen produced with renewable energies by 2030. This is a major step towards achieving TotalEnergies' objective of reducing the net greenhouse gas emissions directly linked to its oil and gas operations (Scopes 1+2) by 40% by 2030 compared to 2015 levels.
