Graforce – Key to a circular economy
We are convinced that climate protection and economic efficiency are not mutually exclusive.
We make it possible to close energy and material cycles and thus make a significant contribution to a future without fossil fuels and CO2 emissions.
Graforce is a technology leader in sustainable solutions and negative emission technologies. Our power-to-X plants produce CO2-free or CO2-negative hydrogen and synthetic feedstocks – with the highest efficiency and lower infrastructure costs in the multi-megawatt range. We thus decarbonize fossil energies, industrial sectors and the heat, transport and building sectors.
For the development and customer-specific scaling of its modular systems, Graforce works with global leaders in the fields of engineering, procurement and construction.
The company was founded in 2012 by Dr. Jens Hanke and has since been based in Berlin Adlershof. Adlershof is one of the 15 largest science parks in the world and the most important science, business and media location in Berlin-Brandenburg. Ten non-university research institutions, six institutes of the Humboldt University of Berlin and around 1,200 technology companies are located in an area of 4.2 km² not far from Berlin-Brandenburg Airport.
Our interdisciplinary and highly specialized team of physicists, engineers and designers makes us the technology leader for sustainable and economical energy solutions for use in hydrogen production. Our interdisciplinary knowledge, commitment and experience from the fields of plasma physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and process engineering guarantee quality, know-how and safety at the highest level.
