Mexico has 15 green hydrogen pilot projects with investments of 20 billion dollars

The Mexican Hydrogen Association (AMH), chaired by Israel Hurtado, assured that there are at least 15 private initiative projects that are already in advanced negotiation phases and will be carried out in the coming years in the country with the use of hydrogen obtained in renewable plant processes in the country to be fuel or electrify industrial procedures, with investments that exceed 20,000 million dollars.

The Mexican Hydrogen Association explained that approaches have been carried out with the campaign teams of Claudia Sheinbaum and Xóchitl Gálvez, who have shown great interest, in addition to explicitly including hydrogen in their platforms.

Likewise, Petróleos Mexicanos ( Pemex ) considered it in its Sustainability Plan for its industrial processes and the Ministry of Energy issued this week the Guidelines for the use of this element.

“Mexico has great potential for hydrogen production, but also for the development of new manufacturing industries,” said Hurtado, “we have estimated scheduled investments of around 20 billion dollars in different states in the southern, central and northern regions of the country.” .

However, he explained that a study carried out by the AMH reveals that according to the size of the country’s market, investments of around $60 billion will be required between now and 2050.

Regarding the Sustainability Plan of Petróleos Mexicanos , he recalled that through blue hydrogen from its processes it stated that it will invest 1,000 million dollars by 2030, 3,000 million dollars by 2040, and 4,000 million dollars by 2050

“Pemex wants to get into producing and marketing hydrogen as a line of business, it is something very interesting,” he said.

He also detailed that a few weeks ago the Mexican Hydrogen Center was created , which uses technologies in the production, transformation, conditioning, storage, transportation, distribution and marketing of clean hydrogen, as well as the training of professionals in that sector.

“Mexico also needs to develop, innovate, research and we need a center that is focused and dedicated to this in this context of the development of new manufacturing industries,” said Hurtado.

At a conference, the commercial director of the Mexican company Cryoinfra, Dieter Femfert, explained that there is even a pilot bus that is driven with blue hydrogen provided by this company, which circulates on Mexican roads.

“It is already a reality, I am not talking to you about plans,” said the businessman. “The vehicle was assembled in China, but it is already in Mexico as proof that the use of hydrogen for different industrial and daily life applications is in progress. Serious”.

In the world, there are a total of 1,418 green hydrogen projects in operation or about to start, as of May, of which 256 are electromobility. As of December of last year there were 1,046, which shows how quickly this industry is growing.
