๐Ÿš›๐Ÿ”‹ The H2Ref-Demo project: A promising step towards high-capacity hydrogen refuelling for heavy transport.

๐Ÿ”— #Hydrogen #CleanTransport #Innovation #SustainableMobility #Europe

๐ŸŒ As a hydrogen expert, I am excited about the H2Ref-Demo project, a European initiative that aims to revolutionise hydrogen refuelling for heavy-duty vehicles. ๐Ÿšš This project addresses a crucial challenge in the transition to clean transport: enabling efficient refuelling of large vehicles such as buses and trucks.

๐Ÿ”‹ The current limitations of battery technology for high-energy storage make hydrogen a compelling solution for heavy transport. ๐ŸŒฑ The H2Ref-Demo project builds on the success of the previous H2Ref project, which introduced a new hydrogen refuelling concept using hydropneumatic accumulators. This new approach offers significant advantages for high-capacity refuelling, perfectly adapted to the needs of heavy-duty vehicles.

โš™๏ธ The main innovation of the project lies in the development and testing of a high-capacity compression module. This module has the capacity to compress hydrogen for storage at a rate of 1.2 tonnes per day or for direct distribution at 350 bar (a rate of 150 kg/hour). โฑ๏ธ After a thorough optimisation process, the system will undergo a one-year test at a commercial refuelling station. ๐Ÿ›ฃ๏ธ This critical phase will pave the way for the commercialisation of the H2REF compression system, coinciding with the expected growth of hydrogen truck fleets (and potentially also buses and trains).

๐Ÿค The consortium behind H2Ref-Demo brings together leading European players in their respective fields, including HRS for hydrogen refuelling solutions, Hydac for hydraulic systems and Faber for pressure vessels. ๐ŸŒ This collaboration signifies Europe’s commitment to pioneering advances in hydrogen refuelling technology.

๐ŸŒŸ Overall, the H2Ref-Demo project has enormous potential to accelerate the widespread adoption of hydrogen mobility. ๐Ÿญ By overcoming a major technological hurdle, this project paves the way towards a decarbonised transport sector, especially for applications where battery limitations hinder the transition to clean energy.

๐Ÿ” Importantly, the article mentions the achievement of TRL 7 at the end of the project. ๐Ÿ“Š TRL stands for Technology Readiness Level, and a score of 7 means a demonstrated system in a relevant environment.

๐Ÿ‘€ I am following the progress of the project with great interest, and I believe H2Ref-Demo represents a significant milestone in the future of clean transport.

The integration of green hydrogen into existing infrastructures is essential to accelerate the energy transition and meet decarbonisation targets.** The H2SAREA project addresses this challenge by developing innovative solutions to ensure the safety and efficiency of this integration.

๐Ÿ”ง A comprehensive approach to safe hydrogen distribution.

One of the key elements of the project is the H2Loop platform, a unique test bed that simulates the real conditions of a future hydrogen distribution network. This platform allows evaluating the behaviour of critical materials, components and systems, such as valves, pipelines, meters and sensors, when exposed to different mixtures of hydrogen and natural gas under different operating conditions.

๐Ÿš€ Promising progress in the first phase

The first results of the H2SAREA project are very positive. Nortegas has successfully completed tests on the H2Loop platform, evaluating hydrogen blends with natural gas up to 20%. These tests are in addition to those previously conducted with concentrations of 5%, 10% and 15%.

๐Ÿ”‹ A project with great potential

The conclusions obtained so far provide valuable information for the safe integration of green hydrogen into the natural gas distribution network. All in all, the H2SAREA project is a major step towards a sustainable and efficient energy future. By ensuring the safety and adaptation of existing infrastructures, this project opens the door to further penetration of green hydrogen into the natural gas grid, thus driving the decarbonisation of multiple sectors.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ My opinion as a hydrogen expert:

I am particularly enthusiastic about the H2SAREA project for the following reasons:

  1. It addresses a crucial challenge: The safe distribution of green hydrogen in the existing natural gas grid is essential for the energy transition.
  2. It takes a holistic approach: The project does not only focus on the development of individual technologies, but also considers the interaction between all system components.
  3. It has a strong team:** The project is led by Nortegas, a company with extensive experience in the natural gas sector, with the participation of Tecnalia, a renowned research centre.

I am convinced that the H2SAREA project has the potential to be a resounding success and to contribute significantly to the development of a sustainable hydrogen economy.

๐Ÿ”— #Hydrogen #CleanEnergy #Innovation #Decarbonisation #Technology

๐ŸŒ As a hydrogen expert, I am excited about the THOTH2 project, a key initiative for the development of the hydrogen industry. This project focuses on ensuring the accuracy of hydrogen mixed natural gas (H2NG) and pure hydrogen measurements in existing infrastructures.

The injection of hydrogen into natural gas networks is a key strategy for the decarbonisation of the energy sector. However, to ensure its success, reliable and accurate metering systems are essential.

THOTH2 is developing new methods, protocols and facilities to assess the performance of metering devices used in gas transmission and distribution networks. These methods will focus on testing the performance of flow meters, gas quality analysers, pressure and temperature transmitters, among others, when operating with mixtures of H2NG up to 30% by volume and pure hydrogen.

The project will be carried out in three stages:

1. validation tests: traceability of measurements and uncertainty fit for purpose will be ensured.

2. Limit tests: Thresholds affecting the accuracy of the measurements will be determined.

3. Ageing tests: The durability of the measuring devices in the presence of hydrogen shall be evaluated.

The results of THOTH2 will not only allow the definition of new test protocols, but will also contribute to the update of existing regulations and standards for the measurement of H2NG and pure hydrogen.

This will have a positive impact on the development of the green hydrogen market, as it will allow:

– The creation of green gas markets.

– Accurate measurement of the flow of hydrogen injected into the grid.

– Accurate calibration of metering devices.

– More accurate billing.

๐ŸŒ Ultimately, THOTH2 is a crucial project that will help unlock the potential of gas networks for hydrogen transport. By ensuring accurate measurements, this project will accelerate the adoption of green hydrogen and the decarbonisation of various sectors.

๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ฐ The future of the Sun: what will happen when its hydrogen runs out?

๐Ÿ”— #Hydrogen #Astronomy #StellarEvolution #Science

๐ŸŒ WHEN HYDROGEN RUNS OUT
As the hydrogen runs out and fusion becomes weaker and weaker, this equilibrium will tend to break down, triggering a series of transformations that completely change the structure and composition of the star. However, this is not a process that happens overnight: the decline in the rate of nuclear fusion will be spread out over millions of years, as the Sun continues to slowly burn the remaining hydrogen in its core.

๐Ÿ’ผ Thus, the decrease in fusion will alter the delicate balance between the gravitational force and the pressure generated by the release of energy. As that release decreases, gravity will begin to exert a stronger influence, causing the Sun’s core to gradually shrink. What is curious, however, is that with this contraction, the pressure in the core will be reduced, leading in turn to a massive expansion of the outer layers, which will swell to form a structure known as a red giant.

#Hydrogen #Innovation #SustainableTransport #HeavyTrucks #Decarbonisation.

๐ŸŒ As a hydrogen expert, I follow with great interest the RHeaDHy project, a European initiative that is developing high-performance hydrogen refuelling stations for heavy trucks.

๐Ÿ’ผ Freight transport is a major challenge in the decarbonisation of the transport sector. The RHeaDHy project proposes an innovative refuelling protocol that will make it possible to fill the hydrogen tanks of a 100 kg heavy truck in just 10 minutes.

๐Ÿ”„ In order to meet this objective, new key components for refuelling stations will be developed and tested:

  1. high flow components: hoses, nozzles and cutting systems will be designed to withstand flow peaks of up to 300 grams per second, while ensuring safety and efficiency.

Advanced communication: An advanced two-way communication system shall be implemented between the truck and the station. This communication will optimise the refuelling process and ensure safety.

3.3. Accurate flow measurement: A flow meter will be developed that is capable of accurately recording high flow rates, averaging more than 170 grams per second.

Efficient cooling system: A cooling system will be designed to maintain the hydrogen at a temperature of – 20 ยฐC or lower during refuelling, which optimises the performance.

Reliable pressure regulator: A pressure regulator valve will be developed that is able to adapt to new refuelling protocols and to ensure flow stability.

All these components will be integrated into a dispenser specifically designed for heavy trucks, following the relevant ISO standards.

The RHeaDHy project will not only develop the necessary technology, but will also contribute to the definition of new safety and communication standards for high flow hydrogen refuelling.

This project is a major step towards more sustainable and efficient freight transport: the future of heavy-duty transport is clean and powered by hydrogen!

๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ฐ New Hydrogen Production Method Reduces Iridium Use by 95%.

๐Ÿ”— #Hydrogen #Innovation #Sustainability #GreenEnergy #Research.

๐ŸŒ Researchers at the RIKEN Sustainable Resources Science Center in Japan reduced the iridium needed for the reaction by 95 percent without changing the rate at which hydrogen is produced, according to a study published May 10 in the journal Science. This breakthrough could help improve the ability to produce โ€˜green hydrogenโ€™.

๐Ÿ’ผ The production of โ€˜green hydrogenโ€™ requires an extremely rare metal, iridium, but the scarcity of iridium resources is a major problem.

๐Ÿ”„ The research team tried to avoid this โ€˜bottleneckโ€™. They wanted to find a way to produce โ€˜green hydrogenโ€™ at high rates over a long period of time. This time, they successfully used a manganese oxide as a catalyst to stabilise the production of โ€˜green hydrogenโ€™ at a relatively high level.

๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿ’ฐ Green Injection! The Man Who Circled the World in a โ€˜Solar Planeโ€™ Now Wants to Repeat the Feat Using Hydrogen.

๐Ÿ”— #Hydrogen #Innovation #Sustainability #GreenEnergy #SustainableDevelopment

๐ŸŒ On 26 July 2016, Swiss duo Bertrand Piccard and Andrรฉ Borschberg, taking over from each other, completed the feat of circumnavigating the globe in a lightweight plane called Solar Impulse, powered solely by solar energy. It was a 504-day, 17-stage adventure, which began on 9 March 2015.

Piccard, the leader of the project, flew the last leg, from Cairo to Abu Dhabi, for more than 23 hours. Disruptores El Espaรฑol spoke to him in Brussels about a new challenge he is taking on, as he joins, together with the non-profit foundation Solar Impulse, the European Solar Academy initiative, launched by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT).

Piccard is never satisfied with just one challenge. In 1999, he was the first to circumnavigate the globe in a hot-air balloon. In 2016 he did it in his solar-powered plane, as mentioned above. And in 2028 he intends to repeat the feat with a hydrogen-powered plane (green, of course), while acting as an activist for innovation as a general cause.

๐ŸŒŠ The Catalina project calls for 5.4 hectometres of water in Andorra.

#GreenHydrogen #IndustrialDevelopment #Sustainability #Andorra #Water.

๐Ÿ’ง The green hydrogen plant of the Catalina project is in search of a water reserve in Andorra. This plant would require the entire water reserve of 5 hectometres that the Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge (MITECO) had reserved for the mining village.

๐Ÿ’ก In view of this situation, Andorra Town Council plans to reapply to the Ebro Hydrographic Confederation (CHE) for an extension of this water reserve. The mining town requires a considerable amount of water to guarantee the operation of projects such as Catalina, as well as others that are being planned in the region.

In addition, it has been identified that Endesa had a concession of 18 cubic hectometres reserved for a power plant that is no longer in operation. The City Council seeks to secure at least half of this reserve for the industrial development of Andorra.

Water is a crucial resource for the industrial development of Andorra. The consistory hopes that the CHE will show its commitment in this aspect and be willing to collaborate to guarantee the water supply necessary for the economic and sustainable growth of the region.

#Toyota #hydrogen #internalcombustion #ToyotaGazooRacing

๐ŸŽ™๏ธ As part of the 6 Hours of Imola, we had the honour of interviewing Kazuki Nakajima, former driver and now Vice President of Toyota Gazoo Racing Europe. The 2018-19 world champion and three-time Le Mans winner spoke to us about the possible future the Japanese see for internal combustion engines, with hydrogen replacing petrol.

๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ FT: What are your plans for the future with hydrogen, also in terms of transferring knowledge from the track to the road, and what plans are you pursuing at the moment?

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ผ Kazuki Nakajima: โ€˜At Toyota, from 2021, we have started racing a hydrogen car, the Corolla GR. This project was basically initiated by Morizo, as we call him, Akio Toyoda, who as a driver of the same car initiated the work. At Toyota, we have done a lot of research and development on hydrogen internal combustion engines. We started with gaseous H2, running a few laps at a time, and there was less power than running with the normal petrol engine. Since then we’ve made great strides in terms of range and power, and now we’ve come up with a little bit more power than with normal petrol, using the same engine, and I don’t have the exact figure, but I think at this point, even in terms of mileage, we’re almost at the level of petrol.’
