The partners already identified large scale hydrogen projects to lay the ground for industrial scale electrolyzer systems.
Hydrogen is added to natural gas for a malthouse, which uses it as fuel in its block central cogeneration station. Hydrogen chemical symbol H is a gas. As a molecule H 2 , it occurs only in small amounts in nature and it is mainly chemically bound, such as H 2 O.
Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. They add up to three quarters of the total mass in the universe. Hydrogen has the highest energy density of all conventional fuels by mass: almost three times as high as that of gasoline or diesel.
That is one of the reasons why hydrogen is used as fuel for space travel. By combusting hydrogen, it delivers heat. Used in fuel cells, hydrogen is converted electrochemically to electrical energy. Hydrogen has been produced and used for more than years.
Experience shows that hydrogen can be stored, distributed and converted safely. As early as , the first large-scale use of hydrogen was established for the street lighting system in London. Hydrogen H 2 can be produced in different ways. A more modern and ecofriendly technology for CO 2 neutral production of hydrogen can be offered by electrolysis of water. Hydrogen can be produced from hydrocarbons by steam reforming of natural gas - often referred to as steam methane reforming SMR , coal gasification and from an electrolysis process of water H 2 O.
Hydrogen can be stored in tanks as a compressed gas or as a liquid. Hydrogen can also be stored in caverns or in the natural gas grid for different applications and if the grid fulfils all technological requirements. The volumetric energy density of hydrogen at atmospheric pressure is approximately one third of traditional fuels.
The volumetric energy density can be increased by compression or liquefaction of the hydrogen gas to store and transport a greater amount of hydrogen. For hydrogen-powered vehicles, an industry standard of to bar has been established. Hydrogen can be transported as a compressed gas or a cryogenic liquid. Today, the two main methods for transporting hydrogen primarily in a gaseous state are via tanker e.
Hydrogen is a non-toxic clear gas. It is not poisonous, has no taste or odor. Using hydrogen as a fuel source with fuel cells does not create fumes, pollute the atmosphere with carbon dioxide or emit nitrogen oxides. It is not inherently more dangerous than other fuel sources. Hydrogen is flammable and must be handled with care, just like other flammable fuels.
To ignite, the hydrogen must be combined with an additional oxidizing agent air, pure oxygen, chlorine, etc. If, in a worst-case scenario, the hydrogen ignites, it burns upwards very quickly. It creates no dangerous heat radiation above the accident site, as petrol or kerosene do. The facilities are designed to be permanently leak proof. Flange connections are designed especially for hydrogen and the number of detachable connections are minimized.
Furthermore, in buildings a steady air exchange is ensured and the facilities are equipped with safety valves and pressure reliefs. Additionally explosion prevention zones are designated. Hydrogen can be safely handled and stored as well as transported. The industrial gas industry has done so for over a century.
In contrast to gasoline and natural gas, hydrogen gas has significant buoyancy in atmospheric conditions due to its low density, any leaking hydrogen gas ascends immediately and disperses, which reduces the risk of an ignition in open air. Electrolysis processes can be categorized as follows: alkaline electrolysis with liquid alkaline electrolytes, acidic electrolysis with a solid polymer electrolyte as PEM and high temperature electrolysis with a solid oxide as electrolyte. PEM electrolysis and alkaline electrolysis systems are available at an industrial scale.
The solid oxide electrolysis technology is in an early development phase. PEM is the abbreviation for proton exchange membrane. This membrane is a crucial part of the electrolytic cell in a PEM-electrolyzer. The membrane separates the anode, where the oxygen is collected, and the cathode, where the hydrogen gas is generated.
On average 50kWh are necessary to produce 1kg of hydrogen, depending on the efficiency of the electrolyzer and operation mode. The hydrogen market is divided in three sectors. In the future a redistribution towards the mobility and energy sector is expected. Today, hydrogen is an important industrial gas, i. Hydrogen enables the long-term storage of large quantities of surplus renewable energy. It is allows new ways to use green electricity, i. In the future, hydrogen will be produced to a greater extent using electricity from renewable energy sources.
Furthermore, biogas and various fuels like solid biomass will help to produce green hydrogen in the future. That means that the needed energy to produce hydrogen by electrolysis has emitted zero emissions. Forward-thinking power generation. Utilizing conventional and renewable energy sources efficiently.
