DNV publishes new low carbon hydrogen and ammonia validation guidelines
The organization DNV has published a new service specification that details the steps it takes to confirm claims made by businesses regarding the creation and distribution of low carbon hydrogen and ammonia.
The DNV-SE-0654 guideline, which includes advisory, verification, and validation services, enables producers to prove that their systems or products are valid based on certain criteria, ensure the veracity and transparency of their claims, and document and demonstrate compliance with certain standards.
These traits consist of things like the need to keep greenhouse gas emissions below a set threshold. Along with accompanying ammonia synthesis, it covers a variety of hydrogen production processes, including traditional, electrolysis-based, and other techniques.
Nel gets first ULC certified hydrogen fueling station
By obtaining the first Underwriters Laboratories Canada (ULC) certification for a hydrogen filling station in the globe, Nel has set a new standard for performance, quality, and safety in the industry.
A recognized leader in product safety and quality certification is Underwriters Laboratories Canada (ULC), an independent, non-governmental organization accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC). Similar to its American equivalent, UL, ULC certification is commonly regarded as a sign of exceptional quality because of its extensive and severe requirements.
First Hydrogen FCEV available for fleet trials with package delivery services
The hydrogen-fuel-cell vehicle (FCEV) from First Hydrogen is now available for fleet trials with package delivery services.
The company’s proof-of-concept demonstrator cars are scheduled for operational trials with a number of parcel delivery businesses wanting to improve their expanding greener fleets, beginning later in 2023, following successful initial fleet operator road trials in the UK.
The parcel delivery vehicles include hybrid engines (hydrogen fuel cell and battery), which are suitable for shorter travels in urban and suburban regions even though they were built to handle longer trips. Regenerative braking aids in battery recharging, especially on routes with numerous stops and starts, such as those taken by delivery drivers who frequently make drop-offs and pick-ups or when driving through populated regions. In a typical shift, drivers make around 100 stops.
The LCV from First Hydrogen can be refueled in about five minutes, but it would take around five hours to charge an equivalent electric car. By making the cars available for longer shifts among numerous drivers, this lengthens daily duty cycles and gives fleets more operational flexibility.
Hysata adds hydrogen expert to Global Advisory Council
Michael Liebreich has been appointed to Hysata’s Global Advisory Council, the company has announced.
Along with former UK Climate Change and Energy Minister Claire O’Neill and former Australian Chief Scientist Dr. Alan Finkel AO, the worldwide clean energy, technology, and sustainability expert and investor will collaborate.
The Australian Energy Agency (ARENA) recently awarded Hysata AUD $20.9m ($13.5m), which will be used to build and test a 5MW unit at its manufacturing site in Port Kembla, New South Wales.
