The maximum support funds for hydrogen refueling stations will not exceed 5 million yuan, 4 million yuan and 3 million yuan respectively.

【News】Total investment of 5 billion yuan! The demonstration project of green hydrogen-based chemical base in Bahrainzuoqi signed!

Ltd. signed a green hydrogen-based chemical base demonstration project with the People's Government of Balinzuo Banner, Chifeng City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and Northeast Electric Power Design Institute Co.

【Policy】 100,000 tons/year of green hydrogen! 1,500 hydrogen vehicles! Three-year action plan for the development of hydrogen energy industry in Xinjiang invites opinions

On April 24, the Development and Reform Commission of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region publicly solicited opinions on the Three-Year Action Plan for the Development of Hydrogen Energy Industry in the Autonomous Region (2023-2025), which states that by 2025, a more complete institutional policy environment for the development of hydrogen energy industry will be formed. The initial construction of a hydrogen energy supply system based on industrial by-product hydrogen and renewable energy hydrogen production for use in the vicinity, and the promotion of the establishment of a supply chain and industrial system integrating green hydrogen production, storage, transportation, refuelling and use. A number of hydrogen energy industry demonstration zones will be built, the amount of hydrogen produced from renewable energy will reach 100,000 tons/year, and more than 1,500 hydrogen fuel cell vehicles will be promoted. Moderately over-deploy and build a number of hydrogen refuelling stations. Actively strive to be included in the national hydrogen fuel cell vehicle demonstration city cluster. With the green hydrogen industry as the main focus, promote the energy structure to achieve clean, low-carbon and green transformation, and provide a solid guarantee to promote high-quality development in all aspects.

【International】Total investment of over 1 billion RMB! French Air Liquide to build hydrogen supply base in Tianjin

Recently, Air Liquide's hydrogen energy supply base in Tianjin, a key foreign investment project of the Ministry of Commerce, was officially registered and launched in the Lingang area of Tianjin Port Free Trade Zone. The project is invested by Air Liquide (China) Investment Co., Ltd (hereinafter referred to as "Air Liquide China") and will significantly enhance the hydrogen supply capacity in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei region and help Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei achieve the goal of "double carbon" after the project is put into operation. This is the latest result of the Binhai New Area delegation's economic and trade promotion activities in France, showing the accelerated economic and trade cooperation between China and France and the confidence of French enterprises in the development opportunities of the Chinese market.

It is understood that the total investment of the Tianjin hydrogen energy supply base project is expected to exceed RMB 1 billion and will be built in two phases, with one set of hydrogen purification unit, one set of hydrogen pressurization and filling unit and supporting public engineering facilities planned for the first phase, which is expected to be put into operation in the second half of 2024; the second phase of the project will build a new hydrogen liquefaction unit at the right time according to the development of the hydrogen energy market, with an expected annual output of about 10,000 tons of high purity hydrogen.

【International】Europe's largest carbon market reform bill in history passed!

Recently, the European Parliament approved several key pieces of legislation in the "Fit for 55" 2030 climate package, including the reform of the Carbon Emissions Trading System (ETS), amendments to the rules related to the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) and the establishment of a social climate fund.
