Viscofan conducts the first green hydrogen tests in boilers

​This project is a pioneer milestone in the usage of green hydrogen as a source of energy in industrial processes. Viscofan successfully completed on Thursday the tests conducted in the production plant based in Cáseda (Navarre) to progressively substitute the natural gas used in one of their boilers, using green hydrogen instead. The goal of the test was the partial substitution of the natural gas for hydrogen. Thanks to a temporal installation of two hydrogen semitrailers, each one with an approximate capacity of 4,000 Nm3 compressed hydrogen at 200 bar, increasing hydrogen flows of 400 Nm3/h were used.
