Cost Effective, Eco-Friendly Hydrogen Production
- The demand for merchant market hydrogen (H2) is expected to grow twenty-fold by the year 2030.
- States like California are now requiring that upwards of 33% of all H2 must be produced from renewable sources.
- Utilizing Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) and/or Biogas to make H2 reduces waste disposal issues while producing H2 at a lower cost compared to traditional methods.
- Eco H2 bio reformation produces hydrogen from renewables and:
- – can produce hydrogen competitive to large scale reformers
- – is modular and scalable to meet almost any demand
- – can be located near end use reducing transportation costs
- – sequesters all carbon resulting in a negative carbon footprint
- – byproduct carbonate can be sold, landfilled or recycled
- – can use solid, gaseous and liquid renewable feedstocks
Hydrogen Market Forces & Forecast
- Historically, the hydrogen energy market has been centered on the petroleum refinery and chemical manufacturing sectors.
- “Increased energy demand, requirements to use renewable energy, growth in the cleantech backup power market, and the deployment of a growing number of fuel cell-powered vehicles in the transport sector will all push overall demand for hydrogen as a fuel to unprecedented levels.”
–Kerry-Ann Adamson, Navigant
- According to a recent report from Navigant Research, hydrogen consumption for non-traditional applications (outside the petroleum and chemical sectors) will grow from 168 million kilograms in 2013 to nearly 3.5 billion kilograms in 2030.
- States are starting to mandate that 33% of all H2 production be from renewable sources: commonly called “green” hydrogen
- Today most of the hydrogen is produced using Steam Methane Reformers (SMR) which use non-renewable natural gas as the feedstock: that is why it is referred to as “brown” hydrogen
- SMR technology produces large amounts of CO2 (greenhouse gas) as a by-product
- SMRs must be large, centralized plants to be economical resulting in high transportation costs to the merchant market
- Navigant Research forecasts a 20 fold increase in the H2 merchant market to $50 billion by 2030 with stationary fuel cells, fuel cell vehicles and energy storage being major contributors.
Introducing Base Facilitated Reformation (BFR)
- We have developed the eco-friendly reformation process to produce
high purity hydrogen from a wide variety of renewable feedstocks:
thus it is considered “green” hydrogen
- The BFR process has no greenhouse gas emissions (no CO or CO2 released into the atmosphere) making it even more eco-friendly
- The BFR process is modular and scalable allowing hydrogen production near the point of use, minimizing transportation costs
- BFR delivered hydrogen costs to the end customer are far less than traditional merchant hydrogen
“Landfill Gas to Hydrogen”
1800 kg/day Bio Reformation module (on the left) is producing the equivalent of 1 Megawatt of power per day.
Containerized Hydrogen Reformation System
Scalable from 100 kg to 2000 kg of H2 per day per module – equivalent to 1.15 megawatts of power Multiple modules can operate in parallel for greater capacity.
