Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction is working to develop technologies for “clean hydrogen processing.”
The Changwon plant’s hydrogen-liquidated plant, which is expected to be completed next year, will manufacture and use blue hydrogen. Blue hydrogen is hydrogen that is produced in a way that reduces carbon emissions as much as possible by capturing and storing carbon produced during the hydrogen extraction process.
Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction plans to use high-efficiency carbon dioxide capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) technology to manufacture blue hydrogen. Jeju Island is also producing green hydrogen with the help of wind energy.
The development of clean hydrogen using Small Modular Reactors (SMRs), a next-generation nuclear power plant, is being considered. Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction is expanding its business to produce hydrogen gas turbines after building the world’s fifth largest gas turbine.
Hydrogen gas turbines run on pure hydrogen or a mixture of hydrogen and natural gas. Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction’s subsidiary Doosan Mecatech is also expanding its hydrogen equipment market. In 2019, Doosan Mecatech began securing technology by investing in ReCarbon, a company that has developed hydrogen production technology that uses greenhouse gases from landfills, power plants, and petrochemical plants.
Doosan Mecatech developed a Hydrogen Process Issue (HPE) project dedicated to carbon resourceization and hydrogen business earlier this year to help speed up its business. In addition, it will take part in the Ministry of Science and ICT’s Dangjin Thermal Power Plant Carbon Resourceization National Project, which will see it complete and supply gas separation suppliers.
