MOL to build Europe’s largest green hydrogen production facilities


Hungary – MOL Group has partnered with Plug Power to construct one of Europe’s largest green hydrogen production facilities at MOL’s Danube Refinery in Hungary.

Green hydrogen will reduce the Danube Refinery’s carbon footprint and, in the long run, enable emission-free mobility.

MOL’s €22 million facility will use a 10MW electrolysis unit from Plug Power to produce approximately 1,600 tons of clean, carbon-neutral, green hydrogen per year, removing up to 25,000 tons of CO2 from the current natural gas-based production process. This investment supports MOL’s carbon neutrality goals and will contribute to the region’s energy independence, as this process accounts for one-sixth of the company’s carbon dioxide emissions.

MOL will use green hydrogen in its Danube Refinery during fuel production of its own hydrogen system once it is operational in 2023. It will be incorporated into MOL fuel molecules, reducing carbon emissions from both the manufacturing process and the final product.
