US cooperation for the production of “green” hydrogen

US cooperation for the production of

Hydrogen-operated electric vehicles are developed as an alternative to purely power tankes E-vehicles, especially for the commercial vehicle sector. However, in order for this form of energy supply to be sustainable and emission-free, the hydrogen must be obtained by means of renewable energies by electrolysis. Here it often spins. Hyzon Motors, world market leader for fuel cell mobility from the US, now cooperates with transform material to produce hydrogen emission-free from methane and biogas.

Transform material produces “green” hydrogen using its patented microwave reactor technology. The hydrogen is generated as a by-product of acetylene, which makes production particularly cost-effective. Azetylene carbon black or graphene is a useful carbon deposition for products with significantly negative carbon intensity, especially if methane or biogas is used as the energy source. This saves those CO2 emissions that are usually incurred in the production of hydrogen and acetylene. Already in the small scale (1-5 tons / day) the technology is efficient, so modular designs are conceivable, which “confuse” with the needs of the customer.

Recently, Hyzon Motors and Transform Material have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collect the problem of hydrogen infrastructure together. Therein is Parker Meeks, Hyzons Chefstrateges, namely the key to decarcronize the transport sector in a short time “. The two companies therefore invest in the development of plants that can produce cost-effective hydrogen in small quantities and can be built in a few months. This customer orientation also support the development of emission-free, hydrogen-powered vehicles.

In the future, hyzone and transform want to couple hydrogen production to the rising demand generated by hyzons commercial vehicles. Plants are built there where existing or future customers have needed. The emission-free or negative produced hydrogen will then provide for the emission-free operation of the vehicles. Thus, “two essential industries are simultaneously declared: the transport industry with green hydrogen and the chemical industry with the green acetylene”, such as David Soane, founder and CEO of transform material, explained.

  1. “Plants are built there where existing or future customers have needed.”And where does the electricity come from??? from the socket??

  2. There is except the Electrolysis with water (45, 50 or more kWh per kg H2, Depending on the source), other methods that are much more efficient to produce hydrogen.

    Dirtwater plasmalysis

    The energy requirement for the generation of green hydrogen is approx. 20 kWh / kg H2.

    Methane plasmalysis

    A particularly efficient way to produce hydrogen (10 kWh / kg H2) is the methane plasmalysis.

    Decomposition of hydrogen sulfide

    Hydrogen sulfide component in petroleum and gas and by-product in the field of biogenic substances – due to its weak binding energy is also suitable for a plasmalytic cleavage for producing hydrogen and elemental sulfur. The energy requirement for the generation of such hydrogen is approx. 5 kWh / kg H2.

    However, this inexpensive H2 generation is no reason to waste hydrogen in vehicles as it is needed much more urgent for the industry to vitiate the CO2 emissions there.

    Methane would give Russia the possibilities of escaping methane of the thawing permarry floors Eínkrangen and to transform environmentally friendly by green electricity from PV and wind turbines in green hydrogen.

    The many new (eco) power-saving possibilities for hydrogen should we use to cover the high H2 needs in the stationary area, also for the extensive storage of H2 for heating and power supply in winter and in sun and wind arms times to fossil energies to save.

  3. Hydrogen from methane is unfortunately not CO2 neutral, especially not if you use natural gas. Also, if the hydrogen is a by-product. Beautiful Green Washing.

  4. Since water fabric is quasi with lossless efficiency from the sky, this is the energy source of the future. The idea that one can move without combustion from A to B does not seem to have arrived anywhere. Where there is no electricity could make sense. There is then enough hydrogen dispenser. For container ships, trucks, diesel rocks or planes, hydrogen may be an option. Possibly also as (shorthy) energy storage could be hydrogen an option. Or as peroxide also bleach the hair.

  5. Great idea – and we simply split the hydrogen with organic atomic electricity in demeter quality
