4. [Hanwha Energy] Held a Groundbreaking Ceremony of Hydrogen Fuel Cell Power Plant in Daesan

Interest in clean energy is increasing along with concerns about climate change. Hanwha Energy held a groundbreaking ceremony for a mega power plant to produce a byproduct-hydrogen fuel cell for the first time in the world. This power plant is an eco-friendly facility of the future that converts chemical energy to electric energy when hydrogen reacts with oxygen.

Hydrogen fuel cell power generation is a method that generates electricity by extracting hydrogen, a byproduct of chemical processes from the petrochemical complex, and creating an electrochemical reaction with oxygen. This is the first mega fuel cell power generation plant that uses byproduct hydrogen in Korea as well as in the world. Hydrogen fuel cell power generation does not create nitrogen oxide(NOx), sulfur oxides(SOx), or fine dust when it generates electricity. It is an eco-friendly power generation facility because it filters ultrafine dust through micro-filters.

With this, Hanwha Energy can strengthen their position as a comprehensive energy provider by adding a hydrogen fuel cell power generation business to their existing business portfolio of energy and solar power generation.

5. [Hanwha Group] Held the final round of Hanwha Science Challenge 2018
