🌐 The landing of #Ignis in A #Coruña:

#hydrogen in #Alu Ibérica, #ammonia in #Langosteira and an “#underground #network” The energy company Ignis is preparing its landing in A Coruña with a double project that involves building factories in the former facilities of Alu Ibérica in Agrela and the outer port of Punta Langosteira. According to company sources, the two initiatives are “absolutely” compatible, as one will supply the other. The Agrela factory will synthesise hydrogen using clean energies, and it will be sent “through an underground network” to the outer port plant, where it will be combined with nitrogen from the atmosphere to create ammonia. The ammonia will be “green”, as it will be produced using energy from renewable sources, and will be transported to the final industries by rail or sea. The Agrela plant will be located on land ceded by Resonac, the former Showa Denko, which already has a factory annexed to the former Alu Ibérica and made a purchase offer to the latter’s bankruptcy administration last Monday. In addition to the hydrogen consumed by the group in its project at Punta Langosteira (developed by its subsidiary Armonia Green Galicia), part of it will be used “for the decarbonisation process of Galician industry”. The project “also includes the generation of oxygen, which can be used in industry, medicine or to improve the quality of the environment”. The amount of the investment, according to Ignis, still depends on “the final characteristics of the project, as well as its location”, but in a “first phase” an investment of more than “more than 350 million euros is planned for both developments”. The company has not clarified how many jobs it plans to create with the project, although it points out that it would be “quality employment”, both in the process of building the plant and during its operation. Production in this first phase would be 150,000 tonnes per year of… https://www.laopinioncoruna.es/coruna/2023/03/29/desembarco-ignis-coruna-hidrogeno-alu-85305811.html

🔥 The first domestic #HA-class #gas #turbine #power plant with #hydrogen #doped #combustion has been built:

In February this year, the first domestically produced HA-class heavy-duty gas turbine officially rolled off the assembly line. The 9HA heavy-duty gas turbine is 11 metres long and has a total weight of 400 tonnes. In theory, it can power six Liaoning aircraft carriers. In the comprehensive project of the Daya Bay Petrochemical Zone Power Station in Huizhou, Guangdong, the HA-class gas turbine unit will operate with a hydrogen mixing ratio of 10% (calculated by volume), and its hydrogen mixing combustion ratio can be increased in the future. According to the staff, 100 % hydrogen combustion is planned to be achieved for HA-class gas turbines around 2030.
Compared with coal-fired power generation, with the same output, hydrogen-doped gas power generation has the advantages of greatly reducing carbon dioxide and conventional pollutants, 100% adjustable, short construction period, relatively simple and flexible operation process and operation mode, etc. . Compared with direct renewable energy power generation, hydrogen-doped gas power generation has the characteristics of high continuity of power supply, high safety and reliability, and excellent regulating performance.

It will be located in the port associated with #Petronor (#Repsol) and when operational will manufacture 8,000 litres of fuel a day with the mixture of CO2 and ‘green’ hydrogen. Synthetic fuels are in the eye of the storm, with opinions divided between those who believe they are nothing more than a ploy orchestrated by certain sectors to delay the inevitable move towards the electrification of mobility and those who see e-fuel as a real alternative for a “realistic” decarbonisation in which the use of various technologies is the key. Europe has just given a boost to its development after reaching an agreement with Germany not to ban the sale of new vehicles with combustion engines in 2035 as long as they use synthetic fuels as an alternative to petroleum derivatives.

🌐 The #Pipeline #steel of #Baotou #Steel is heading for the “Era of #hydrogen #energy”

“Produce 11,200 tons of hot-rolled coils for the X52MS hydrogen-doped natural gas pipeline for the Baotou to Linhe western gas pipeline project.” Recently, the rare earth steel plate mill received an order task. This is the first pipeline steel order won by Baotou Steel Group for hydrogen-doped natural gas pipelines. “We have taken the first step into the ‘Hydrogen Energy Era’,” said Cao Yan, regional technical director of the Rare Earth Steel Plate Plant R&D Centre, with confidence. The mixed gas formed by mixing hydrogen with natural gas in a certain volume ratio can improve the combustion performance of terminal equipment, effectively increase the combustion value, and reduce nitrogen oxide pollution and carbon dioxide emissions. This makes natural gas hydrogenation technology an effective way to save energy and reduce carbon. Under the goal of “maximum carbon level and carbon neutrality”, the development of hydrogen energy industry has entered the fast track. For long-distance and large-scale transport of hydrogen-doped natural gas, pipelines are cheaper, safer and more environmentally friendly than canned transport. However, hydrogen molecules are extremely permeable to metals, which can easily lead to hydrogen embrittlement or rupture in pipelines. The development and application of metallic materials for long-distance hydrogen transmission or hydrogen-doped natural gas pipelines is imminent. Baotou Steel Group accurately studied and judged the market, seized the opportunities, exploited the potentials, and successfully developed and produced steel pipes for hydrogen-doped natural gas pipeline… http://bit.ly/40M3l97

🔬 Is it feasible to produce #hydrogen from #waste?

Hydrogen is an element that is attracting the attention of #scientists and researchers every day. The project is being run by the energy company Idemitsu Kosan in collaboration with the US company #HCycle (HC). The American company is the developer of a thermal conversion process that uses heat and electricity to transform waste into hydrogen with minimal emissions. A feasibility study on the clean production of hydrogen from waste is already underway in Japan. The manufacturer said the aim is to set up the first hydrogen production facility, capable of processing between 200 and 300 tonnes of waste per day, at a rate of around… https://bit.ly/424tlfZ
