Tecnalia to produce clean fuel for hydrogen bus fleet in Birmingham


Early in 2020, the University of Eindhoven, France’s Engie, and Spain’s Tecnalia R&D center announced the establishment of an industrial company called H2SITE in Biscay, Spain, to support the on-site manufacturing of high-quality green hydrogen.

The difficulty of moving hydrogen across vast distances is one barrier to its broad use. Ammonia, on the other hand, is a molecule with a very high hydrogen density that is simple to move about and store locally. Additionally, the technology developed by H2SITE may make it possible to efficiently convert ammonia to hydrogen.

H2SITE in Birmingham, England served as the project manager for the Tyseley Ammonia to Green Hydrogen initiative. Its goal is to develop the world’s most effective ammonia-to-hydrogen conversion system. A current hydrogen refueling station will get 200 kg of hydrogen per day from the pilot plant.

The project is a part of a pledge to establish a hydrogen production capacity of up to 10 GW in 2030 and was funded with €7.8 million ($8.2 million) from the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. According to projections, hydrogen will account for 35% of the UK’s total energy consumption by 2050.
