Unleash the potential of clean hydrogen and make a common global vision come true.

Ambition

We carry the new energy world.

Our purpose is to unleash the potential of clean hydrogen and make a common global vision come true: A climate-neutral economy and society.

How we succeed?

We add the missing link to hydrogen value chains globally, connecting clean hydrogen sources with the consumer side. In industry and mobility. No matter whether through deserts, across oceans or mountains.

We tame the lightest and highly explosive element, bringing it and accessing it wherever and whenever it’s needed – providing particularly safe, easy, and efficient hydrogen storage and transportation.

Our proprietary liquid organic hydrogen carrier technology allows to overcome constraints in large-scale hydrogen supply regarding safety and handling and complex supply routes by reusing conventional fuel infrastructure.

We are the indispensable vibrant counterpart to a fixed, pipeline-bound hydrogen backbone. Establishing flexible new energy axes and pulsing a completely new energy world forward.

Company Group

Young, but fast growth.

Ten years after our founding in 2013, not only has the number of our staff multiplied to over 200 today. At the same time, we are successfully expanding our business and have grown to a group of companies, with affiliates and joint ventures, both national and worldwide.

Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies has been founded in early 2013 by (from left to right) Prof. Peter Wasserscheid, Prof. Wolfgang Arlt, Prof. Eberhard Schlücker and Dr. Daniel Teichmann. The picture shows one of the first LOHC dehydrogenation reactors.

Hydrogenious LOHC NRW
LOHC Industrial Solutions NRW

With Hydrogenious LOHC NRW and LOHC Industrial Solutions NRW, we have established subsidiaries in Western Germany/North Rhine-Westphalia, which take care of the development, construction and operation of regional LOHC projects and plants.

Investors

Our funding cycle from startup to fast-growing SME? Successful!

In 2014, one year after the company was founded, AP Ventures invested in the seed funding.

A subsequent financing round was conducted in July 2019 and raised 20 million euros: Royal Vopak, Covestro, Mitsubishi Corporation and Winkelmann Group became involved as strategic investors, followed in early 2020 by Hyundai Motor Company.

In September 2021, we raised a further €50 million to scale and commercialise our technology. The oversubscribed funding round was led by JERA Americas, alongside Temasek, with Chevron Technology Ventures and Pavilion Capital investing for the first time. Existing investors AP Ventures, Royal Vopak and Winkelmann Group also contributed to the round. Proceeds are used to deploy commercial systems into landmark hydrogen projects in Europe, the Middle East, and locations around the globe including APAC and Americas.

Hydrogenious LOHC as a viable investment case.

Investment bank UBS has indicated that hydrogen could make up 10% of global energy consumption by 2050, with potential investments in the space rising to as much as $1 trillion.

But presently, global decarbonisation and the widespread growth of the hydrogen industry is constrained by the inability to safely and efficiently store and transport large volumes of hydrogen from the regions of supply to the centres of demand. Governments and businesses are searching for solutions which avoid significant investment into new storage, transport and liquification infrastructure, and limit risks associated with potentially toxic or dangerous alternatives.

We position hydrogen as the commodity to deliver decarbonisation for global industry and mobility sectors. Our transformative LOHC technology provides a safe, low cost means of bulk hydrogen storage and transportation, establishing the critical link between supply and demand on a regional, national, and international level.

We are at the forefront of hydrogen technology, providing solutions for a rapid energy transition. There is a strong conviction in the competitive positioning of our LOHC compared with other hydrogen carriers such as liquid hydrogen, compressed hydrogen and ammonia. Together with existing and new partners we will make large-scale green hydrogen transport and supply a reality to decarbonize industry and mobility worldwide. Following on from its successful fundraise, Hydrogenious LOHC will continue to drive the industrialization and scale up of its stationary and onboard LOHC systems.

Investors see LOHC as key in driving the energy transformation and going net zero.

Kevin Eggers, 
Founding Partner of AP Ventures

“We are very pleased to welcome our most recent co-investors, notably JERA Americas and Temasek as co-leads. Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies is now even better positioned with such a strong and diverse set of investors. We remain convinced that the hydrogen economy will develop on the back of cost competitive bulk storage and handling technologies for which Hydrogenious has a revolutionary solution. The company has made great strides to date and we look forward to supporting their future development.”

Marcel van de Kar,
Global Director New Energies of Royal Vopak

“Helping set up new international green hydrogen supply chains is a key element of our new energies strategy. It is an exciting opportunity for us to be working on concrete projects together with Hydrogenious LOHC Technologies to provide solutions for global transportation, storage and distribution of hydrogen.”

Steven C Winn,
Chief Global Strategist for JERA Co.

“We are moving forward on all fronts to reach net zero CO₂ emissions by 2050. We believe in the low carbon fuel hydrogen as a key component. With our investment in Hydrogenious LOHC we strive to participate in the development of green hydrogen import via LOHC in Europe, North America and Asia.”
