The University of Sheffield (UoS) is developing a Sustainable Aviation Fuels Innovation Centre (SAF-IC) with financing from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to support and promote the production and characterization of decarbonized and sustainable aviation fuel.
We’re hoping to acquire a proton exchange membrane (PEM) or a solid oxide hydrogen electrolyser to expand and support our significant research, development, and deployment efforts at the center. The Green Hydrogen Creation and Storage Facility project will allow for the production of green hydrogen on-site; while the device will be powered by the mains, the facility’s renewable electricity production potential is substantial. Consequently, it is envisaged that the H2 production facility’s consumption will be offset by its output capability, resulting in genuine green hydrogen production.
One of the primary reasons for this acquisition is the production of renewable synthetic fuels from the generated hydrogen.
The budget allotted to the Green Hydrogen Production Facility is around £1.2 million, whereas the budget allocated to the Storage Facility is approximately £150,000. (both figures are excluding VAT). This explains the total estimated value displayed above of $1,350,000
