Sinopec is rolling out its plan to build a giant green hydrogen project in northern China’s Inner Mongolia, part of a wider ambition to become the country’s largest hydrogen company.

Well-informed energy industry officials told Upstream that China’s second-largest energy company will earmark 20 billion yuan ($2.8 billion) for the integrated green power and hydrogen project to be built in Ulanqab, Inner Mongolia.

The scheme involves building an onshore wind farm, an electrolysis system using wind energy to produce hydrogen and an export pipeline.
