  • Hyundai Motor Group signed an MOU to demonstrate new technologies for large-scale hydrogen production using biogas over the next two years
  • The Group to develop an integrated system for the production of green hydrogen with a ‘waste-to-energy’ concept
  • With the system, the Group expects to produce 216 kilograms of green hydrogen per day — enough to charge more than 34 units of NEXO models

SEOUL, September 1, 2023 – Hyundai Motor Group (the Group) announced that it will start producing clean hydrogen using biogas generated during a food waste treatment process. The effort will help support the establishment of a green hydrogen ecosystem.


The Group signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on the 29th of August at the Hyundai Engineering  Construction Co.,Ltd (Hyundai E&C) office in Jongno-gu, Seoul, attended by officials from Hyundai Motor Company, Kia Corporation, Hyundai E&C and the Sudokwon Landfill Site Management Corporation (SL Corp.).


The agreement aims to demonstrate a system that can produce 216 kilograms of green hydrogen per day by utilizing biogas produced by the SL Corporation over the next two years. This is enough to charge more than 34 units of NEXO, Hyundai Motor’s hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle.


High purity hydrogen production is possible through refinement and reforming processes. Fermentation of food waste produces biogas, primarily methane. The resource-circulating hydrogen production technology is gaining attention for generating renewable energy sources from waste materials, embodying the ‘waste-to-energy’ concept of hydrogen production.

What We Do for the Sustainable Future

Under the agreement, Hyundai Motor and Kia will establish an integrated system for the catalytic reaction process, Hyundai E&C will be in charge of developing gas selection separation technology in the hydrogen production process, while the SL Corp. will study biogas pretreatment technology and provide research sites and facilities, including biogas, a raw material for hydrogen production.


The Group plans to promote green hydrogen production capabilities while also researching renewable synthetic fuel (e-fuel) production technologies. It also plans to secure technologies to apply recycled synthetic fuels that can be obtained additionally in the hydrogen production process to existing internal combustion engine vehicles.


In addition, it plans to take a step closer to achieving its ultimate carbon neutrality goal by developing a technology that synthesizes clean hydrogen and carbon monoxide, eventually generating renewable plastic materials.


The SL Corp. expects the agreement to achieve the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and provide conditions to stably secure clean hydrogen needed to implement the 10th Basic Plan on Electricity Demand and Supply.


“Through this agreement, we intend to conduct in-depth research and demonstrate resource-circulating energy technologies to achieve carbon neutrality,” said Seung Hyun Hong, Head of Materials Research and Engineering Center at Hyundai Motor and Kia. “We are committed to leading the industry as a global carbon neutrality leader by developing high value-added technologies, such as e-fuel and renewable plastic interior materials production, in the future.”


In July, the Group established a joint research laboratory for carbon neutrality in partnership with five domestic universities, including Gyeongsang National University, Kongju National University, Korea National University of Transportation, Korea Institute of Energy Technology and Hanyang University, in order to secure preemptive technologies for carbon neutrality.
