The Michigan Economic Development Corporation announced that the Michigan Strategic Fund has approved support and incentives for Fortescue, a global green energy, metals, and technology company, to establish a U.S. Advanced Manufacturing Center in Detroit, Michigan.
Topsoe's involvement in solid oxide electrolysis and dynamic ammonia process
In this episode, H2Tech spoke with Bo Hartvigsen, Senior Business Development Director, Power-to-X for Topsoe. The conversation covered solid oxide electrolysis, the dynamic ammonia process and Topsoe’s role in the energy transition.
IMI electrolyzer boosts University of Sheffield’s development of sustainable aviation fuel
The University of Sheffield has successfully bolstered its efforts to decarbonize the aviation industry by increasing its green H2 production capacity, following the successful commissioning of a new polymer electrolyte membrane electrolyzer.
Chlor-alkali plant in Brazil reduces environmental impact with thyssenkrupp nucera technology
CAPE IGARASSU is converting its chlor-alkali plant in Igarassu in the Brazilian metropolitan region of Recife to a more environmentally friendly and safe solution for the supply of chlorine and its derivatives.
Convion and Elcogen celebrate a key development milestone in green H2 production technology
Convion and Elcogen announced the successful conclusion of a groundbreaking field test for an industrial scale solid oxide electrolyzer system delivering green H2 at superior efficiency compared to incumbent technologies.
The turquoise route: Methane pyrolysis to produce hydrogen
For the thermal CH4 decomposition, a temperature of 1,300°C is required. Metals like Ni, iron, copper and cobalt are found to have demonstrated catalytic activity for CH4 decomposition at lower temperatures, around 500°C–800°C. The reaction is carried out in nanostructures like nanotubes, nanofibers or graphene.
Optimizing the H2 value chain from the plant floor to the cloud
There is further scope for efficiencies and scale in input processes like water purification and renewable power generation. However, the bulk of cost optimization must come from the digital transformation of green H2 manufacturing, transportation and usage to make green H2 competitive against hydrocarbon-based fuels, and within the greater H2 market.
Coriolis and thermal mass flowmeters are essential to maximize tax credits
The $369 B of renewable energy initiatives in the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) are promoting the shift to green energy with several incentives. Along with public appeal, the availability and flexibility of the various tax credits are projected to spur interest in energy transition projects.
