    Actis Signs MoU with Egyptian Government for Hydrogen

    Strategic Research Institute
    Published on :
    15 Sep, 2022, 12:50 pm

    Leading global investor in sustainable infrastructure Actis has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Egyptian government for green hydrogen development. The MoU will give Actis an entry point into what could be one of the largest hydrogen markets in the region. While not alone in pursuing green hydrogen, Egypt has a comparative advantage due to its renewable resources and proximity to European and Asian markets. This opportunity is an attractive proposition for Actis as it develops its hydrogen strategy and evolves the next generation of investment platforms.

    Hydrogen is widely used globally in commercial industry, for example in the production of ammonia for fertiliser, methanol for plastics and in oil refining. Currently almost all of the world’s hydrogen is produced using fossil fuels, with a significant amount of carbon dioxide emitted as a byproduct of the process.

    Green hydrogen is far superior from a sustainability perspective, because it is generated by electrolysing water using renewable electricity and has zero emissions. The production cost of green hydrogen depends on two factors – the cost of renewable power and the cost of the electrolysis equipment – and is currently more expensive than fossil fuel-based hydrogen production. However, with an expected decrease in the cost of both renewable electricity and electrolysing equipment, countries such as Egypt are seizing the opportunity to lead the way.

This partnership will support the development of Carlton’s proposed Barrow Green Hydrogen scheme in Cumbria and reduce Kimberly-Clark’s reliance on natural gas as part of its global decarbonisation strategy. The Barrow Green Hydrogen scheme is to be located on land adjacent to Kimberly-Clark’s manufacturing facility on Park Road in Barrow-in-Furness. Subject to planning and financing, the £40M scheme is targeted to enter commercial operation in 2025.

    Barrow Green Hydrogen will provide Kimberly-Clark and potentially other energy-intensive users in the area for example, those with transport fleet, with hydrogen to fuel their operations. This project will initially feature a 35 MW lectrolyser, expected to produce approximately 3500 tonnes of hydrogen every year , reducing 25,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions which is equivalent to taking 580 trucks off UK roads annually. The hydrogen will be produced by the electrolyser using electricity that is generated from sources of renewable energy, primarily wind and solar power.

    The Barrow Green Hydrogen scheme, the first of its kind in Cumbria, was announced last month. Carlton Power identified the opportunity and is leading the development in partnership with a regional public & private sector consortium of Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership, Barrow Borough Council, Cadent Gas and Electricity North-West.

    19 Sep, 2022, 6:53 am

    Pinedale Wyoming based renewable fuels company Raven SR has announced the results of the field trial of its non-combustion equilibrium Steam & CO2 Reforming SR2 unit, which converted methane to transportation-grade hydrogen at a rate exceeding other commercially available technologies for producing hydrogen from methane. Over 95% of the hydrogen currently produced in the US uses Steam Methane Reformation, which has an average first-pass conversion efficiency of only 75-80%.

    The 12 August trial, held at Raven SR's Benicia Fabrication & Machine facility in Benicia in California, demonstrated to stakeholders at the event, including investors and local officials, how this ground-breaking technology for waste-to-hydrogen and gas-to-hydrogen processes is commercially ready, effective, and efficient.

    The trial comes on the eve of Raven SR opening its Round C financing, which is expected to close this fall, with Raven SR advised by Barclays and BofA Securities. Raven's roster of strategic investors prior to its Round C launch includes Chevron, Ascent Hydrogen Fund, ITOCHU, Samsung and Hyzon Motors.

    Raven SR plans to bring its first commercial Steam & CO2 Reforming production facility online in the first half of 2023 at the West Contra Costa Sanitary Landfill in Richmond, Calif., where Raven's facility will convert organic green waste into transportation-grade hydrogen for local customers.

    The Raven SR technology can produce emissions-free hydrogen fuel and lower-carbon synthetic fuels from a variety of feedstock sources, including landfills, methane, fugitive gas wells, wastewater treatment plants, agricultural and other sites.

    The patented Raven SR Steam & CO2 Reforming process was originally created by the late Professor Mr Terry Galloway, whose earlier commercial systems were smaller until large scale commercialization by Raven SR. Raven SR's technology is designed to produce hydrogen-rich syngas, the essential building block for clean fuels, efficiently and economically. Raven SR's renewable energy products, such as hydrogen, sustainable aviation fuels, synthetic liquid fuels (diesel, Jet A, mil-spec, JP-8), additives and solvents (such as methanol, butanol, and naphtha), will further promote local and regional energy independence and security.

    Strategic Research Institute
    Published on :
    19 Sep, 2022, 6:56 am

    Southern California Gas and the University of California Irvine have announced a proposed collaboration to demonstrate how electrolytic hydrogen can be safely blended into existing natural gas infrastructure on the university's campus. The project aims to help better understand how clean fuels like renewable hydrogen could be delivered at scale through California's existing natural gas system, either to existing customers connected to the gas grid, or to generate clean electricity in zero-emissions fuel cells. The demonstration is an important next step in establishing a statewide injection standard for renewable hydrogen that would promote California's clean energy and resiliency goals. If approved, SoCalGas could begin testing hydrogen blending at UCI as soon as 2024.

    As proposed, UCI would use an electrolyzer to convert water into hydrogen for blending into the existing gas grid on sections of the UCI campus. The demonstration would power existing residential and light commercial equipment, including water heaters, boilers, furnaces, and ovens in academic buildings, student amenities, and housing. The project would initially blend 5 percent hydrogen, with a goal of gradually increasing the hydrogen blend up to 20 percent, resulting in potentially significant CO2 emissions reductions.

    SoCalGas' collaboration with UCI is part of hydrogen blending demonstration application jointly filed with San Diego Gas & Electric Company and Southwest Gas yesterday with the California Public Utilities Commission.

    The demonstration project builds upon the California Public Utilities Commission Hydrogen Blending Impacts Study, performed by University of California, Riverside. The study recommended testing hydrogen blending in a real-world environment as an important step toward establishing a California hydrogen blending standard, which could accelerate the state's clean energy and resiliency goals.

    Published on :
    19 Sep, 2022, 7:07 am

    BAM Infra Nederland, in close collaboration with Koninklijke van Twist, has successfully converted a diesel-powered asphalt spreading paver into a machine with a hydrogen combustion engine. The engine emits virtually no nitrogen oxide and saves approximately 80,420 kilograms of CO2 on an annual basis.

    The asphalt spreading paver is the first machine in the Dutch construction industry powered by a hydrogen combustion engine. The use of this asphalt spreading paver saves around 150 litres of diesel per eight-hour working day. This equates to a reduction of more than 80,420 kilograms of CO2 annually and virtually no emissions of nitrogen oxide. The hydrogen tank can be refilled in 10 to 15 minutes.

    Often fuel cells are used to convert hydrogen into electricity. Instead, BAM and Van Twist have used a hydrogen combustion engine. Unlike a fuel cell, the quality of hydrogen is not important for a hydrogen combustion engine. This asphalt spreading paver can therefore operate on any quality hydrogen. This saves on cleaning costs during the production of hydrogen and allows the use of residual flows of hydrogen as fuel.

    Siemens & Deutsche Bahn Test Hydrogen Train & Fueling Station

    Strategic Research Institute
    Published on :
    19 Sep, 2022, 7:12 am

    Hydrogen trains are a particularly climate-friendly drive technology since they operate emission-free with green hydrogen and emit only water vapor. Siemens Mobility and Deutsche Bahn presented the H2goesRail project to the public in November 2020. In addition to the refueling and commissioning tests conducted over recent months, DB employees have been trained to operate the system when it enters service. The Mireo Plus H developed for the H2goesRail project has a range of up to 800 kilometers, is as powerful as its electric multiple-unit counterpart, has 1.7 MW of traction power providing up to 1.1 meters per second acceleration, and a top speed of 160 kilometers per hour.

    One key factor needed to make hydrogen technology competitive with diesel fuel in daily operation is a fast refueling process. To provide this, DB has developed a new method that, for the first time, enables a hydrogen train to be refueled as fast as a diesel-powered train. This is especially important considering the closely timed scheduling of DB’s regional passenger service. Hydrogen for the trains will be produced in Tübingen by DB Energy with green electricity taken directly from the overhead power line.

    On the route between Tübingen and Pforzheim, for example, switching from diesel to the H2goesRail project train will save around 330 tons of CO2 emissions a year. In general, and depending on the route, the Mireo Plus H can save 520 tons of emissions per year (calculated on a total mileage of 200,000 kilometers). The Mireo Plus H will begin test runs in Baden-Württemberg in 2023. As of 2024, it will be underway in regular passenger service for the H2goesRail project, operating between Tübingen, Horb and Pforzheim and replacing a diesel railcar currently in use on that route.

    The joint funding project is officially called “H2goesRail”. The Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport BMDV is funding the project with over EUR 13 million through the National Innovation Program for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology NIP 2. NIP 2 is coordinated by NOW (National Organization for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technology) GmbH and is being implemented by project lead Jülich. For the project’s one-year trial operation, Siemens has developed a two-car regional train using a next-generation hydrogen drive system. The train operates with two propulsion systems, each consisting of a fuel cell and a lithium-ion battery. The Mireo Plus H is as powerful as an electric multiple-unit train and has a range of up to 800 kilometers – depending on operating conditions such as season or route. A three-car variant has a range of up to 1,000 kilometers. Thanks to its reduced maintenance and repair costs, the train has low lifecycle costs. The Mireo Plus H has a top speed of 160 kilometers an hour.

    DB has developed, tested and optimized the related hydrogen infrastructure. Hydrogen is produced by electrolysis at the DB maintenance depot in Tübingen using green electricity taken directly from the overhead power line. In the electrolyzer, water is split into hydrogen and oxygen using electricity. After being compressed, the hydrogen is kept in a mobile storage unit. Prior to the refueling procedure, the green fuel is processed and cooled. The mobile system will enable DB to conduct further test projects on non-electrified rail routes. he train is refueled with hydrogen in an innovative procedure that, for the first time, takes no longer than tanking a diesel train. This is an especially important factor considering that DB’s commuter and regional trains operate on closely timed schedules. Thanks to this fast refueling process, hydrogen technology will be economically competitive with the diesel fuel currently in use.

    Optima Improves Fuel Cell Manufacturing Technology

    Strategic Research Institute
    Published on :
    19 Sep, 2022, 7:16 am

    Fuel cells generate electricity from hydrogen through an electrochemical process. Efficient manufacturing processes for fuel cells are a crucial topic. Optima Life Science, a specialist in the field of web processing technologies, is currently developing a test converter specifically for the development and testing of innovative manufacturing processes for fuel cells. Therefore, the company receives considerable funding from the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. The heart of the fuel cell is the membrane electrode assembly. Hydrogen and oxygen are present and electrical energy and water are produced in an electrochemical reaction. The individual components such as membranes, frame material and gas diffusion layers are each fed from the roll in Optima systems. Individual parts are cut to size and assembled into the MEA in the complex, continuous web process. In order for the fuel cells to achieve the desired level of efficiency, all process steps require maximum precision. In addition to the manufacturing technologies required for MEA production, Optima offers the traceability of each individual MEA with its digital solutions. Optima Life Science already offers production systems for fuel cells with a high output. Building on this experience, the company is currently developing a modular test converter. Innovative ideas and process optimizations, as well as product developments can thus be implemented quickly and easily. In the future, production processes for fuel cells will first be verified in a development environment and then transferred to highperformance systems Further developments in fuel cell technology will foreseeably always require new structures and dimensions of the fuel cells and thus also of the membrane electrode assembly (MEA). The need for development and refinement of manufacturing processes is in high demand. The OPTIMA MTC (Modular Test Converter) is just designed for this purpose. The adaptable arrangement of the different processes, the reconfiguration and the addition and removal of process steps become reality. Individual processes and complex process sequences, up to the finished MEA for the fuel cell can be tested. Another benefit is the reduced economic risk when product development and manufacturing process development can go hand-in-hand. Ideas for process and product optimization can also be implemented quickly and validated in the course of product development. The knowledge gained can quickly be implemented into production. Last but not least, sampling and small series production can take place on the OPTIMA MTC system. Experiences from projects that have already been implemented and inquiries from the hydrogen industry showed that there is an enormous need for product and process development. Optima Life Science responds to this request by developing and building the OPTIMA MTC test converter. To exploit the full potential of production methods and to support the rapid growth of this future technology, Optima received funding from the state of Baden-Wuerttemberg. As part of the “Future Program Hydrogen BW”, the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector has been funding a total of 20 projects of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies since the beginning of 2022. The state government is providing budgetary funds of 26.4 million Euros for the development of this technology.
