Below we present news around WS, affiliated companies, as well as information concering our industry.

Focus 2022

On October 28, 2022, the consortium of BtX energy GmbH, e-flox GmbH and WS Reformer GmbH presented a pilot plant for the production of green hydrogen from biogas. In particular, liquid manure and other biogenic residues can be considered as feedstock for small-scale plants. 


Regional value creation and security of supply are just two aspects that make the project so interesting that it is being funded by the BMWi in the large-scale BioH2Ref research project.

The supply system of our research and development department is currently being extensively expanded. After completion of the work, ammonia will also be available in addition to green hydrogen to enable advanced developments.

Participation of WS in the 24h Hydrogen Rally, as part of the fuel cell event f-cell 2020.

Our participation shows possibilities to produce green hydrogen from biogas.




Green hydrogen from slurry and manure

Green hydrogen from slurry and manure: The biogas route offers great potential for regional value creation and security of supply. The commissioning and presentation of the pilot plant took place on 28.10.2022.



FlexHeat2Anneal is a funded research project investigating the flexible use of hydrogen as a fuel for continuous process lines and galvanizing lines.
