Transitus and Proteum investigate low-carbon hydrogen in Europe

A Letter of Intent between Transitus Energy and Proteum Energy aims to investigate low-carbon hydrogen prospects across Europe.

The partnership combines Proteum’s proprietary steam non-methane reforming technology (SnMR) with CCS to offer low-cost, low-carbon clean hydrogen with Transitus’ aim to decarbonize energy production in the North Sea region.

Depending on the needs of the site, Proteum’s SnMR transforms non-methane and oxygenated hydrocarbons into low-carbon intensity hydrogen. This allows Proteum to increase hydrogen output from 15 metric tonnes per day to 150 tonnes or more.

Hydrom starts issuing RFPs for green hydrogen in Oman

Oman’s Hydrom has begun issuing Requests for Proposals (RFP) for the first set of two concession blocks in Duqm for green hydrogen projects that will open on November 6, 2022.

Around 40 RFQs were distributed for the round, which is expected to be awarded in the first quarter of 2023, according to a report from WAF Oman earlier this month.

According to a Zawya Projects report citing WAF Oman, four additional blocks will be offered by the first quarter of 2023 and are anticipated to be awarded by the end of 2023.

NewHydrogen moves forward with green hydrogen production

The creator of a ground-breaking method for making inexpensive green hydrogen, NewHydrogen, gave an update describing business milestones and the subsequent measures to create longer-term commercial viability.

“NewHydrogen has made significant progress towards its goal of developing technologies that lower the cost of producing green hydrogen, accelerating the timeline for large-scale applications in high growth markets,” said Dr. David Lee, NewHydrogen’s CEO.

By completely eliminating or significantly lowering the usage of precious metals in electrolyzers, research funded by NewHydrogen at UCLA aims to cut the price of green hydrogen. At the moment, electrolyzers rely on precious metals like platinum and iridium. These components frequently make up a sizable amount of the price of electrolyzers.

Dundee shelves hydrogen fuel cell buses

An initiative that would have added twelve hydrogen fuel cell buses to the city’s public transportation system in Dundee, Scotland, has been shelved.

The Council claimed that because expenses had increased, such as in building, it needed the money elsewhere and that hydrogen was no longer a top priority.

The most recent concept in Dundee called for financing the buses through a private-public collaboration with Arcola Energy. A representative informed the neighborhood newspaper that the company had not recently engaged in any conversations regarding its future.

The plan for the hydrogen fuel cell bus, however, was initially made in April 2018 and was still funded by the EU Jive 2 project that the Council had applied for.

The contract included Aberdeen as well, and Aberdeen has subsequently moved forward.

Regarding Dundee, the city was decarbonizing its public transportation even if the hydrogen bus fleet was scrapped.

SDTC invests in Next Hydrogen Solutions

A $5 million investment in Next Hydrogen Solutions Inc. has been made, and Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) is pleased to announce it.

This Mississauga, Ontario-based business was established in 2007 and has created a revolutionary alkaline water electrolyzer that enables industrial-scale generation of green hydrogen from intermittent renewable electricity.

This ground-breaking technology will produce significant revenue and cost savings while reducing GHG emissions more significantly annually than other electrolyzers. Next Hydrogen will be able to build and present their second and third generation electrolyzers thanks to support from the SDTC.

Wiesbaden to replace hydrogen buses with diesel and electric ones

The city of Wiesbaden is repurchasing diesel buses and will in the future substitute combustion and electric buses for hydrogen ones.

The city of Wiesbaden is getting rid of its fuel cell-powered buses after just one year, according to a report from the “Hessischer Rundfunk.” The municipal transportation provider ESWE announced this. The makeup of the fleet was realigned on purpose. Therefore, by 2024, the city will purchase an additional 36 diesel buses.

The depot of the transportation company is home to 130 diesel and 120 electric buses. The hydrogen buses are thought to be much more complicated and less appropriate for everyday usage. These buses are also powered by electricity and employ fuel cells that must be refueled with hydrogen.

Valmet Oyj provides valve solutions forgreen hydrogen projects

For projects utilizing gigawatt-scale green hydrogen, Valmet Oyj will provide valve solutions.

The orders are a part of Valmet’s second- and third-quarter 2022 orders received list. The cost of the orders won’t be made public.

In April 2022, Valmet added valve solutions to its portfolio when it combined with the industrial flow control firm Neles. Neles is currently a part of Valmet’s Flow Control business line.

The use of explosive industrial gases, such as hydrogen, and new electrolysis technologies necessitate the use of valves that can operate under extreme pressure and temperature circumstances. The majority of applications for the industrial usage of hydrogen are covered by Valmet’s extensive flow control offering.

Oman and Hungary discuss green hydrogen production

Sayyid Badr Albusaidi, the foreign minister of Oman, met in Budapest with Péter Szijjártó, the foreign and trade minister of the Republic of Hungary.

They discussed ways to improve their collaboration, particularly in the areas of commerce, investment, and economic diversification, while also reviewing the relations between the two friendly nations. The discussions were mostly centered on renewable energy and the sharing of green hydrogen production experiences.

The two ministers also discussed recent regional and global concerns that bothered them. They stressed the value of supporting all initiatives for peace and the application of international law in order to increase understanding and collaboration and so increase global stability.

Yusuf Ahmed Aljabri, Oman’s ambassador to Hungary, Szabolcs Ferencz, Oman’s honorary consul in Budapest, and a number of representatives from both sides participated in the negotiations session. Sayyid Badr Albusaidi, the foreign minister of Oman, also met with Zsolt Hernadi, the chairman and chief executive officer of the Hungarian MOL Group, which works in the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries.

India Hydrogen Alliance adds six members

The India Hydrogen Alliance (IH2A), a business organization, has announced the addition of six new members to forward the cause of hydrogen growth in India.

In order to expand the hydrogen economy and supply chain in India, Hero Future Energies, bp, Welspun Corp, Tubacex, Climate Policy Initiative, and Climate Group will collaborate closely with the Indian government.

The Alliance, which was established in April 2021, aims to entice international climate money for the construction of a sizable hydrogen hub in India in order to aid that nation’s efforts to achieve Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2070.

IH2A now has 15 members, comprising eight partner organizations and seven members of the industry.

EODev launches packaged hydrogen generators

The first variants of the packed hydrogen generators from EODev will go into production in 2024 and vary in power from 10 kVA to 1,750 kVA.

First orders will be taken starting in the first half of 2023, and the first deliveries will begin in the third or fourth quarter of 2024, according to the French developer.

It is creating plug-and-play solutions for data centers, airports, hospitals, and the telecommunications sector. Other generators will be used for maritime purposes, particularly for energy-demanding vessels.
