Hyundai Motor Group: Beyond Mobility with Hydrogen

Hyundai Motor Company is showcasing its waste-to-hydrogen production and hydrogen value chain as well as SDV technologies and future mobility concepts at CES 2024. The company presented its vision for a hydrogen-powered, software-driven transformation beyond mobility applications at the Las Vegas Show.

The model focuses on the four core areas of the energy value chain: production, storage, transportation, and utilization. The Group is concentrating on resource circulation hydrogen production technology that aims to transform environmental pollutants into clean hydrogen. The resource circulation technology that Hyundai focuses on includes two approaches: Waste-to-Hydrogen (W2H) and Plastic-to-Hydrogen (P2H). W2H involves the fermentation of organic waste, such as food, sludge and livestock manure, to generate biogas. This biogas is then treated to capture carbon dioxide and produce hydrogen. P2H, on the other hand, involves melting waste plastics that cannot be recycled, gasifying the molten plastics and producing hydrogen by removing unnecessary elements.

Hyundai seeks to benefit from the U.S. National Clean Hydrogen Strategy and Roadmap (DoE 2023) for accelerating the production, processing, delivery, storage and use of clean hydrogen. Its «HTWO» business leverages the Group’s wide-ranging capabilities in various sectors, such as automobile, parts, steel, construction, air mobility, marine, robotics and future technologies.

Traditionally, automakers have focused on vehicle utilization, while other industries have covered energy production, storage and transportation. This approach has led to a slow and challenging energy transition process. Hyundai aims to overcome these limitations by combining and integrating its Group-wide hydrogen competencies to revolutionize the energy transition and accelerate the establishment of a hydrogen society. For nearly half of the company’s existence, Hyundai has been at the forefront of the hydrogen momentum, achieving many firsts, including the world’s first mass-produced fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs). It now has the world’s highest market share in hydrogen-powered vehicle sales. Hyundai’s hydrogen solutions (branded «HTWO») go beyond passenger cars, trucks and buses to include trams, special equipment, vessels, power generators and advanced air mobility.
