EDF producing pink hydrogen using nuclear power in UK
Pink hydrogen will be produced by EDF using nuclear power for the first time in the UK. Industry will make use of this to produce asphalt.
The “Bay Hydrogen Hub – Hydrogen4Hanson” demonstrator project is funded to the tune of 17.5 million euros by a number of business partners and the British government.
A 1 MW solid oxide electrolyser (SOE), whose efficiency is said to be 20% higher than that of a PEM electrolyser, will be used to produce hydrogen. This system will be run on electricity and water steam generated by the 1.25 GW “Heysham 2” nuclear power station in the northwest of England, which is under the management of EDF.
National Strategy for the Development of the Hydrogen Economy (ENH) in Ushuaia presented
Businesspeople, union members, researchers, officials, and legislators were all given copies of the National Strategy for the Development of the Hydrogen Economy (ENH) in Ushuaia by the Secretary of Strategic Affairs, Mercedes Marcó del Pont, and the Governor of Tierra del Fuego, Gustavo Melella.
The representative emphasized that “Tierra del Fuego has a development plan that aims to transform its productive matrix to create employment and promote industrialization with a strong commitment to the environment.” The ENH creates the plan for
Officials from SAE conducted the inaugural Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) awareness course throughout the day at the Talent Factory.
The multidisciplinary approach strives to combine the ENH goals with environmental sustainability and consideration for nearby populations. The teams of the SAE’s Undersecretary of Development Strategy oversee the seminars and consultations.
RWE to make hydrogen from waste under FUREC project
One of the hydrogen projects in Limburg is the FUREC project, or Fuse Reuse Recycle, of the energy provider RWE. The goal is to produce hydrogen from municipal residual waste that cannot be recycled after all usable materials have been taken out.
With this effort, RWE hopes to make residual trash circular. By substituting hydrogen for gas, the industry will become more environmentally friendly. Hydrogen is required because electrification is not an option for the sector. Because you become less dependent on nations that produce oil and gas by using hydrogen instead of fossil fuels. Additionally, this lowers CO2 emissions, which is in line with the goals of the EU, the Netherlands, the Limburg province, and the Brightlands Chemelot Campus science park. Their shared goal is to promote the circular economy in the area. In this manner, the knife thus cuts both ways.
REC goes toward international expansion
With the approval of a green hydrogen ammonia project in Oman and possible business initiatives in Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka, REC Ltd is on a journey toward international expansion. This tactical shift was declared by REC’s chairman and managing director, Vivek Kumar Dewangan.
The promotion of REC to “Maharatna” status in September 2022, which gave it the power to finance projects outside of India, made this growth possible. Dewangan sees this as a great chance for the business to support green activities within the scope of the “One Sun, One World, One Grid” (OSOWOG) program and the India-Middle East-Europe Economic Corridor (IMEC).
Flinders University joins HyPT
The proposed international Global Hydrogen Production Technologies (HyPT) Centre will be heavily reliant on the physics and groundwater specialists from Flinders University. The center, which is a part of the new $118 million international National Science Foundation Global Centers in Climate Change and Clean Energy (NSF Global Centers) program financed by the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK, will concentrate on establishing large-scale net-zero hydrogen generation.
In the HyPT Centre initiative, partners from the University of Adelaide, Flinders University, and Curtin University join those from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Egypt, and Germany. The research teams at HyPT will concentrate on solar-driven water splitting, methane pyrolysis with useful solid carbon byproducts, and integrated water electrolysis using renewable energy.
UK Government’s Net Zero Hydrogen Fund nominates HyMarnham Power
The UK Government’s Net Zero Hydrogen Fund has nominated HyMarnham Power, a joint venture between hydrogen pioneer GeoPura and the industry leader in sustainable waste processing JG Pears. The East Midlands-based initiative will advance low carbon hydrogen production, storage, and transportation. The project, which has a total initial expenditure of £50 million, is promoting the hydrogen economy and advancing the UK’s goals of going net zero.
