SCZone approves green hydrogen projects
The framework agreement reached during the Climate Change Summit (COP27) in Sharm El-Sheikh in November 2022 calls for nine projects to be followed up on, and the board of directors of the SCZone is currently looking into eight projects for green hydrogen businesses.
The agreement for the construction of a water desalination plant with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the Ministry of International Cooperation has also been approved by the board of directors.
As part of the first phase of Egypt’s water desalination program, the Sovereign Fund of Egypt (TSFE) prequalified 17 consortiums in May to submit bids for the establishment of water desalination facilities that utilize renewable energy sources in various areas.
EWS and Hago jointly developing green hydrogen
Emergent Waste Solutions Inc. (“EWS”) announced the signing of an MOU with Hago Energetics Benefit Corporation (“Hago”) for the joint development of green hydrogen.
The most advanced thermolysis technology is available from EWS. It may transform different carbon wastes into renewable natural gas (biogas), biochar, and other useful commodities. Examples of these wastes include wood waste, discarded tires, and municipal solid waste (MSW).
Corvus reveals Pelican Fuel Cell System
The Corvus Pelican Fuel Cell System, a marine fuel cell product from Corvus Energy, is now available.
The H2NOR research project, which began in 2021, produced the system. Corvus Energy, Toyota, and other partners founded H2NOR to hasten the creation of scalable and environmentally friendly maritime hydrogen fuel cell systems.
The two years of development led to the safest naval fuel cell technology to date, according to Corvus. The Pelican FCS may be deployed anywhere on board a vessel thanks to Toyota’s well-proven fuel cell technology, which is used in more than 20,000 cars and has been given the maritime safety standard.
Mystery hydrogen-powered Toyota to be revealed in Le Mans
In the Hydrogen Village of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a sports car under tarpaulin is displayed with other racing cars. This morning’s Automobile Club de l’Ouest press conference will reveal more.
Japanese automobile, we thought. The ACO announced it was a “mystery Toyota” in a press statement. A 9:30–10 a.m. press conference will lift the veil. This will be the first manufacturer commitment to the 24 Hours of Le Mans hydrogen category. During the 24 hours of Fuji in Japan, ACO President Pierre Fillon said the fuel cell and combustion engine would be accepted.
Hydrogen powers this automobile. Toyota, a fuel cell expert, is developing the hydrogen engine. This weekend, the H2 village will display the Corolla H2 competition (see our last story). Still some patience.
Oxford spin-out OXCCU Raises £18 Million to Turn CO2 and H2 into Aviation Fuel
Oxford detour OXCCU raises £18 million to produce sustainable aviation fuel from carbon dioxide and hydrogen.
A £18 million Series A fundraising round has been completed by OXCCU, a firm that was spun off from the University of Oxford in 2021 and is dedicated to turning carbon dioxide and hydrogen into industrial and consumer products. The money will be used to scale up the catalytic method used to produce sustainable fuels from hydrogen and carbon dioxide in order to commercialize cost-effective sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
The goal of OXCCU, which was founded by Drs. Tiancun Xiao and Benzhen Yao, CEO Andrew Symes, and Jane Jin, as well as Peter Edwards, Emeritus Professor of Inorganic Chemistry, is to meet the market’s increasing demand for fuels that adhere to SAF regulations as well as for petrochemicals, surfactants, synthetic lubricants, and plastics.
Low Carbon groundbreaking ceremony for hydrogen facility in Florida
In Mulberry County, Florida, Low Carbon staged a groundbreaking ceremony for a clean hydrogen facility.
On the sixth, at 10 a.m. local time, a groundbreaking ceremony was held with representatives from the state of Florida, local government, and the project in attendance.
President of Space Florida Frank DiBello, President of Ocean Green Hydrogen Jay, Senators of Florida Jay Collins and Nick Dicegley, as well as Representative Melonie Bell, all attended the ceremony.Commissioners Dave Eggers of Pinellas County, Florida, and Ken Hagan of Hillsboro County were among the 70 attendees.
New energy minister of Bulgaria promotes hydrogen
Rumen Radev, the new energy minister of Bulgaria, also serves as the economic director of Holding Zagora, a firm involved in the Stara Zagora hydrogen valley project.
After five general elections and two years since Bulgaria’s political crisis began, the National Assembly named Nikolay Denkov as prime minister. Rumen Radev, the country’s new minister of energy, is an industrialist who is active in promoting a hydrogen valley project in Stara Zagora, the fifth-largest city in the nation.
The coalition of GERB and the Union of Democratic Forces, along with Denkov’s coalition Continue the Change/Democratic Bulgaria (PP-DB), formed the government. He will be replaced after nine months by Mariya Gabriel of GERB, a former European commissioner.
Norway and Northern Germany agree on blue hydrogen supplies to scale industry
During an official visit by delegates from the northern German city state of Hamburg to the Norwegian capital Oslo, Norwegian government representatives said they could supply industry customers in northern Germany with so-called blue hydrogen to accelerate the ramp-up of hydrogen infrastructure. The proposed agreement is viewed as a first step toward a green hydrogen economy.
In order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, CO2 is absorbed during the production of blue hydrogen from fossil fuels. It might be transported to Hamburg and, in the long run, through pipelines that link Norway to its sizable neighbor to the south. Melanie Leonhard, a senator for the economy in Hamburg, said the two nations are working together to reform their industries and increase the use of renewable energy, which Norway has an abundance of.
