Nowadays, no one can deny climate change. In order to combat global warming, we all need to reduce our CO2 emissions. Green hydrogen will make an important contribution to this. 

About VoltH2

Today, hydrogen is still largely produced from methane (CH4), which is accompanied by high CO2 emissions. VoltH2 wants to change that by producing green hydrogen at various locations in Europe. We are currently hard at work developing our first three green hydrogen plants in Vlissingen, Terneuzen and Delfzijl

The development of these types of projects is our core activity. The production of green hydrogen is wholly or partly owned by us. 

To produce green hydrogen, we use electrolysis to electrify demineralised water. This enables us to separate hydrogen and oxygen from each other. By working with renewable energy – such as wind energy – our hydrogen is 100% CO2 neutral. With our locations within industrial areas and ports, there are always candidates for our green hydrogen, oxygen and heat and we can connect to existing distribution backbones.

How can we use green hydrogen?

Hydrogen is important for the process industry and will also increasingly play a role in mobility and energy buffering. We can use hydrogen in three ways:


Raw material

First of all, hydrogen is a raw material for the production of chemicals and fuels. It is an indispensable part of fertilizer and fossil fuels production.



Hydrogen does an excellent job as fuel where electricity and batteries prove insufficient. Just think of sectors that are difficult to make sustainable, such as the steel industry, heavy road traffic, aviation and shipping. The construction sector, which still often works with polluting diesel generators, also offers opportunities.


Storage medium

Finally, green hydrogen is also a storage medium. The need for energy fluctuates, just like the supply of wind and solar energy. We can respond to this by using the ‘surplus’ of energy to make hydrogen and store it for use at a later time. Thus, for example, wind energy generated in the summer can be used in the winter.


VoltH2 was founded in 2020 by the Belgian-Dutch sustainable entrepreneur André Jurres. A team of ten experts has been working since 2021.
