Plasma technology can be used to produce hydrogen from methane without CO2 emission, while also forming useful hydrocarbon compounds. This process involves heating to a high temperature using a plasma instead of natural gas.Continue reading “Hydrogen, electrification and circularity – a plasma chemistry perspective Part 2”
For integrated chemical Site’s as Chemelot, the feedstock transition towards CO2 neutral operations is the dominating topic in view of the Energy transition. Hydrogen is at Chemelot foremost a feedstock. Brightsite is offering an open innovation platform for a fact and science based transition path.Continue reading “Brightsite ‘s approach to the feedstock transition”
Joris van Willigenburg: Some hydrogen production technologies produce by-products, such as ethylene. This raises issues on the subject for how to value the resource-savings resulting from these byproducts and how to calculate the variable production costs from these technologies.Continue reading “Hydrogen variable cost analysis for multi-product processes”
A presentation by Prof. Dr. Ir. Gerard van Rooij, Head Circular Engineering Department, Faculty of Science and Engineering, Maastricht University
Sustainable energy generation by means of wind or from solar radiation through photovoltaics or concentrated solar power will continue to increase its share of the energy mix. Intermittency due to e.g. day/night cycle, regional variation in availability, and penetration of sustainable energy into sectors other than electricity such as the chemical industry necessitates means of storage, transport and energy conversion on a large scale.Continue reading “Hydrogen, electrification and circularity – a plasma chemistry perspective”
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.
Presentation by René Slaghek, Senior Consultant, Brightsite.
Showcase of how new technologies for the production of clean hydrogen can play an essential role in the transformation of an integrated chemical cluster towards a sustainable circular site.Continue reading “Role of clean hydrogen in a sustainable circular chemical site”
