Australian demonstration project to generate hydrogen carrier set to launch

An eight-month Australian demonstration project will generate a hydrogen carrier that can be delivered on ordinary tankers to Japan to feed hydrogen fuel cell applications like hydrogen automobiles.

Japan’s largest fuel provider, Eneos Corporation, is leading the hydrogen initiative. Eneos’ project will generate large amounts of green hydrogen from solar electricity and export it to Japan to fuel hydrogen vehicles.

A unique low-cost “electrochemical synthesis of organic hydride” produces the novel hydrogen carrier, methylcyclohexane (MCH).

Eneos suspends hydrogen in a carrier to simplify shipping. MCH dehydrogenation removes water and extracts hydrogen fuel after shipping.

Queensland’s 150-kilowatt medium-sized electrolyzer and 250-kilowatt solar power system will produce green MCH with hydrogen. Maximize manufacturing efficiency and verify electrolzyer durability under subtropic circumstances.

The Green Innovation Fund Projects of Large-scale Hydrogen Supply Chain Establishment, commissioned by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization, showcased the Eneos hydrogen transporter in 2021. (NEDO). In February, the pilot project will commence full-scale manufacturing until September 2023.

Illinois businesses hope to use federal funding for hydrogen development

In order to create a successful “hydrogen economy,” Illinois business leaders and researchers hope to use hundreds of millions of federal cash.

The plan calls for separating hydrogen from water utilizing the state’s abundant nuclear and renewable energy resources, and using the resulting fuel to power heavy-duty vehicles and industrial activities.

One of more than 30 organizations vying for funding from a $7 billion U.S. Department of Energy program to launch six to ten regional hydrogen centers around the nation is the Midwest Alliance for Clean Hydrogen, or MachH2. Each will be focused on creating and dispersing the currently insufficient pure hydrogen.

Universities, utilities, economic development organizations, manufacturers, Argonne National Laboratory, and energy companies like Constellation Energy and Invenergy, which has started its own pilot program to produce hydrogen in Illinois, are all part of the alliance supporting Illinois’ proposal.

Out of the 79 applications received, the Department of Energy officially encouraged the advancement of 33 projects, including MachH2. In April, a final proposal is expected. The Infrastructure Investment Act established the program.

Wolftank-Adisa to supply hydrogen fueling stations to Australian and New Zealand industry

For the Australian and New Zealand markets, Wolftank-Adisa Holding has recruited a new sales partner.

A similar distribution contract has been struck between EnerMech and the Austrian hydrogen firm.

Wolftank-Adisa will provide hydrogen fuelling stations to the Australian and New Zealandian industries as part of the collaboration.

PZT3 files three additional hydrogen patents

PZT3 the “Rainbow Hydrogen” technology company filed three additional hydrogen patents.

Cryogenic storage of liquid hydrogen is expensive and requires maintenance. PZT3 can store hydrogen without freezing or “armour-plated” tanks. PZT3 is cheaper and safer for airplanes. It’s a revolutionary technology.

Electrolysers made of pricey rare earth metals release hydrogen from water. Production expenses rise due to electrolyser destruction.

Without rare earth metals, PZT3 releases hydrogen from water. By eliminating rare earth mining emissions, the process is more efficient, cheaper, and reduces carbon emissions. The modular technology may make components as little as your hand or as large as an apartment tower.

The technique can use fresh, bore, and sea water to produce drinkable water.

Millions of petrol and diesel engines worldwide emit carbon. These engines will be used in 30 years and need to be upgraded to hydrogen. The expensive conversion requires engine upgrades.

PZT3 created a unique conversion method that runs engines and gensets on 100% hydrogen without major adjustments or machining. All engines can run on 100% hydrogen with minimum engine modifications.

Over the next 18 months, the UK and Australia will create innovative patent-pending technologies like:

• DAFTSS (Dynamic Active Storage System) technology liquifies and stores non-cryogenic hydrogen safely at a lower cost, offering equal range for the same cubic tank size in combustion engine fuel tanks.

• MHG Hedgehog uses no electrodes to release and create hydrogen without mining, using, degrading, or polluting rare earths. The technique uses bore, sea, non-potable, and clean water, making the residual water drinkable.

• SPARJECTOR a simple, efficient, economical, and simply retrofittable conversion, no main block or cylinder head machining, engine stays in place. No fuel combination employs 100% hydrogen. Both diesel and petrol engines are being developed. The technique lets carbon-neutral assets use 100% hydrogen safely.

Clévia helps build Symbio’s headquarters and hydrogen fuel cell production plant

Vehicle makers all over the world can purchase a full line of hydrogen solutions from Symbio. The company has its headquarters in Saint-Fons, where Clévia experts are helping to construct a 25,000 m2 production complex that will also house the office.

On an eight-hectare location, Symbio’s future headquarters and hydrogen fuel cell manufacturing facility will be situated. The company will employ around 650 people by the end of summer 2023, spread out across the manufacturing center, R&D, logistics warehouse, a number of business support facilities, and the corporate headquarters.
