Alternative Hydrogen production

Hydrogen can be used as a zero-emission fuel burned with oxygen. Hydrogen is a very important raw material of the future, presently it is used as feedstock for fertilizer production and methanol production, but more processes will adapt and the circular economy will enhance the role of hydrogen significantly.  As a renewable transport fuel the commercial use of Hydrogen has taken of in applications to replace diesel in public busses, heavy transport and -moving equipment. 

As the production of Hydrogen is energy intensive, a direct connection to renewable energy sources is required. A lot of research and development is done to create Clean Hydrogen, which can be done in two ways, electrochemical and thermochemical.

Normally, green hydrogen is produced via water electrolysis on renewable power. Electrolysis is an excellent process to capture potential oversupply in green energy production and solve various problems of transporting this energy, however its variable production and difficulty to transport and store provides a challenge for the chemical industry. Therefore alternatives should be developed since one can not solve all the hydrogen demand issues via electrolysis.

The alternative options to create clean hydrogen are:

  • The gasification of biomass towards hydrogen and green CO2
  • Pyrolysis, a chemical recycling method
  • The splitting of natural gas in pure carbon and hydrogen

During the Clean Hydrogen Conference the (inter)national speakers will present their view and experience on this fast developing market.

Who should attend:

  • R&D / Innovation and General management of
    • Energy and Chemical companies
    • Bio mass suppliers
    • Pyrolysis industry
    • Recycling value chain
  • Governmental bodies
  • Regulatory institutions
  • Investors
  • Start-Ups

This conference is part of the Brightlands Chemistry of the Future Series and contains the following adjacent conferences:

This conference is all about turning waste plastic via pyrolysis /chemical recycling into new plastics competing with plastics made from virgin fossil oil. This requires that current recycling value chains change to a new sustainable ecosystem. As a result the creation of innovative new ecosystems will be a challenge with so many new and existing stakeholders.
