AGC Group produces hydrogen-fueled flat glass
The manufacturer of chemicals, high-tech materials, and flat glass, AGC, has announced that it has successfully finished a manufacturing trial of flat glass using hydrogen as fuel. The AGC Group has never tested hydrogen in an actual production furnace before.
The test was conducted in the Takasago factory (Japan), in the Kansai plant’s float glass producing facilities. With the help of Air Liquide Japan GK, the trial’s hydrogen combustion burner has been integrated with an already-running, traditional oxygen combustion process that runs on natural gas as fuel.
NORMA Group provides fuel cell truck joining technology
An order for NORMA Group’s range of joining solutions for fuel cell drive system production has been secured. The joining components are utilized on the electric air compressors and in the fuel cell rack cooling system. This project is the largest fuel cell vehicle order that NORMA Group has ever had. A significant German auto supplier is the client.
James Hutton Institute seeks expressions of interest for HydroGlen project
Expressions of interest are being accepted by the James Hutton Institute from potential partners to oversee its innovative HydroGlen project in northeastern Scotland.
As a demonstration project, HydroGlen aims to show how farming communities may use hydrogen in a scalable and replicable manner to become independent producers and exporters of low-carbon energy.
Located at the Glensaugh research farm of Hutton, close to Fettercairn in Aberdeenshire, the project aims to integrate the on-site production of hydrogen through an electrolyser and compressed hydrogen energy storage, together with the generation of renewable energy (wind and/or solar).
Protium expands in the Netherlands
The first international extension of Protium’s hydrogen service offering was started by Protium Green Solutions Europe. Establishing an office in the Netherlands, Protium Green Solutions will work on renewable energy development and build the infrastructure and electrolysers required to supply decarbonized energy to industrial heat and transportation users around the continent.
