Biomass gasification is a mature technology pathway that uses a controlled process involving heat, steam, and oxygen to convert biomass to hydrogen and other products, without combustion. Because growing biomass removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, the net carbon emissions of this method can be low, especially if coupled with carbon capture, utilization, and storage in the long term.Continue reading “Biomass Gasification an alternative way to produce Hydrogen”
Steam crackers play a central role in the production of basic chemicals and require a significant amount of energy to break down hydrocarbons into olefins and aromatics. Typically, the reaction is conducted at temperatures of about 850 degrees Celsius in their furnaces. Today these temperatures are reached by burning fossil fuels.Continue reading “BASF, SABIC and Linde join forces to realize the first electrically heated steam cracker furnace”
A presentation by Pete Johnson, Private Equity Fund Leader at Azimuth Capital Management.
Methane pyrolysis for hydrogen, ie “Turqoise Hydrogen,” is a growing field where more and more commercial companies are being launched. The energy required to release hydrogen from methane or natural gas is approximately 7X less than the energy required to release hydrogen from water, but there are technical challenges for operating pyrolysis furnaces at scale, particularly around carbon management, coking, and carbon product control.
Presented by Robin Post van der Burg, Managing director, Torrgas.
Renewable hydrogen can be produced via various conversion technology chains. Torrgas has developed a systematic solution that creates the opportunity to convert a wide variety of biobased feedstocks into renewable syngas and thus renewable hydrogen.
Tech start-up C-Zero splits methane into hydrogen and solid carbon, eliminating much of the greenhouse-gas impact.
C-Zero’s technology uses innovative thermocatalysis to split methane – the primary molecule in natural gas – into hydrogen and solid carbon in a process known as methane pyrolysis.Continue reading “Bill Gates-Led Fund Backs Clean Hydrogen start-up”
