The Spanish company Repsol, which deals with the commercialization of energy solutions, exploration and production of oil and gas, for the first time produced renewable hydrogen using biomethane as a raw material.

Renewable hydrogen has been used to produce low-carbon fuels, such as gasoline, diesel or aviation kerosene.

Ten tons of renewable hydrogen of 500 MWh of biomethane were produced at Repsol’s Cartagena industrial complex at the Escombreras refinery. This procedure prevents the emission of approximately 90 tons of CO2. Biomethane, which is used as a raw material, was obtained from municipal solid waste.

In this process, Repsol replaces conventional natural gas with biomethane of sustainable origin, in order to produce renewable hydrogen in its industrial complexes. In this way, he decarbonized his processes and products. The first industrial tests, conducted by Repsol, will also serve as an example for the development of a system of guarantees of origin for renewable gases, which will be applied in Spain.
