A key focus of our business activities and projects over the last 5 years has been gaseous hydrogen applications for its use in chemical applications, green hydrogen generation, both as an energy carrier and the application of hydrogen in mobility solutions.

»We provide both technical consulting services as well as complete testing equipment.«

PROREC’s expertise is based on a mixture of process engineering skills and practical experience gained in projects with end clients including:

  • Leading Chemical & Petrochemical Companies and Research Institutes
  • Automotive industry OEMs
  • Tier 1 suppliers

Our project experience includes not only engineering design, construction, and commissioning of test rigs for process & catalyst development, pilot plants and fueling equipment, but also hands-on experience in operating such systems. PROREC provides both technical consulting services as well as complete testing equipment.
