Alfa Laval has joined the Hydrogen Council, a global CEO-led initiative of companies with a long-term goal of utilising hydrogen to foster the clean energy transition for a better, more sustainable future. Alfa Laval is now one of about 140 companies from across the globe representing the entire hydrogen value chain.

The Hydrogen Council’s members are developing hydrogen solutions to accelerate decarbonisation. Hydrogen has a key role to play in the energy landscape of the future. Its unique properties make it a powerful enabler for the energy transition, with benefits for both the energy system and end-use applications like transport and heating.

Alfa Laval is active in the entire hydrogen value chain, from production to utilisation in industry, power generation, and transportation – where heat transfer technologies are core components in solutions ranging from hydrogen production, refuelling stations to fuel cells and Power-to-X solutions, including both methanol and ammonia production. Alfa Laval’s proprietary technologies and heat transfer expertise, in combination with its global manufacturing capabilities, are essential to enable the acceleration of a hydrogen economy through energy efficient and scalable solutions, driving costs down and improving competitiveness.

“We see the hydrogen economy as an inevitable enabler of a Net Zero 2050 and recognise the importance of accelerating the deployment, scaling and commercialisation of the technologies to make this happen. Working together with the leading stakeholders in the industry and the members of the Hydrogen Council, we are developing solutions that are crucial for taking hydrogen technologies into the commercialisation stage,” says Tom Erixon, President and CEO of Alfa Laval.
