H2-Reallabor Burghausen

In the context of the H2 Real Lab Burghausen, the climate-neutral transformation of the chemical industry into a future hydrogen economy is being investigated on site under real conditions. The aim of the H2 Real Lab is to gain insights into the transformation processes through the unique cooperation between science and industry as well as the outstanding roles of the Bavarian Chemical Triangle, which are of overall economic importance for Germany as a chemical location and strengthen its global technological market leadership.

By combining hydrogen-related activities at the scientific and industrial levels, the H2 Reallabor Burghausen aims to:

  • determine the material and electricity requirements of the local chemical sites under various future scenarios, highlight dependencies as well as integration possibilities, and identify appropriate generation capacities to meet these requirements,
  • develop new technologies for the production of sustainable basic chemicals and the recycling of residual materials in closed cycles and bring them to operational maturity,
  • make research findings available to the entire Bavarian Chemical Triangle, thereby shortening the time it takes for sustainable technologies to reach industrial maturity and accelerating the transformation of the site.

Tasks at TUM-ENS

As a project partner, the Chair of Renewable and Sustainable Energy Systems (TUM-ENS) is involved in energy modeling on a wide range of temporal and geographic scales. In the coming years, companies will face important decisions regarding the optimal use of location and the optimal composition of final energy. Electricity will become more important as a final energy source, while new energy sources such as hydrogen will be added. Decisions will depend on expected availability and expected prices, which can only be considered in a European context. As a partner in the joint project, TUM-ENS is conducting energy and material system analyses for Germany and Europe. Furthermore, an analysis of the infrastructure, the current and future primary energy sources to cover the energy and H2 demand, as well as the international trade routes for material import is performed. The aim of the analyses is to show the possibilities for integrating the Bavarian chemical triangle into the higher-level energy system.
