📰 This #plasma #electrolyser could revolutionise #hydrogen production:

The #technique of producing hydrogen from clean water is now well mastered and relies on #electrolysis to split water molecules.

🔬 Innovative #hydrogen #production: using #solar #energy, without solar modules:

What’s behind it? “You’re actually dealing with two tasks at the same time,” explains Alexey Cherevan, who heads the #photocatalysis research group at the Institute of #Materials #chemistry at Vienna University of Technology. “We have to think about oxygen and hydrogen. The oxygen atoms in the water must be converted into O2 molecules, and the remaining hydrogen ions, which are simply protons, must be converted into #H2 molecules.”
The team managed to do this using inorganic clusters consisting of a small number of atoms. Two different clusters are used for the required processes. Cobalt, #tungsten and #oxygen form the basis of the clusters, which leads to the oxidation of oxygen. The hydrogen molecules, in turn, are produced through clusters composed of… https://bit.ly/3x1XjDI

📰 #FEV y #ORECA preparan el #Dakar con #H2ICE:

FEV está trabajando con ORECA para desarrollar un motor de combustión interna que se utilizará en la edición 2024 del #Rally Dakar. Ven esto como un punto de inflexión para el automovilismo que aprovecha la potencia de los motores de combustión y minimiza las emisiones.La ORECA francesa ha ganado varios campeonatos de automovilismo con #vehículos desarrollados por ella. FEV desarrolla sistemas de propulsión para la industria del automóvil, entre otras cosas. Juntos quieren acelerar el desarrollo del motor de combustión de hidrógeno (H2ICE) haciéndolo apto para el Rally Dakar . Está previsto que esta moto haga su debut en una sección especial del ‘Dakar’.¿Por qué H2ICE?La FEV afirma en su nota de prensa que la apuesta por el hidrógeno responde casi exclusivamente al deseo de eliminar las emisiones de los combustibles fósiles. Cuando se quema hidrógeno, solo se liberan cantidades mínimas de hidrocarburos (HC), monóxido de carbono (CO), dióxido de carbono (CO2) y hollín. Estos no provienen del hidrógeno en sí, sino del lubricante quemado. Por lo tanto, FEV presta gran atención a la reducción del consumo de aceite durante el desarrollo del H2ICE.El principal componente de los gases de escape es el óxido de nitrógeno (NOx). Sus emisiones se minimizan mediante una tasa de combustión laminar muy alta en combinación con amplios límites de ignición, lo que permite una mezcla muy pobre. Debido a la baja temperatura de los gases de escape, la cantidad de NOx ya está por debajo de los valores límite actuales incluso sin tratamiento posterior de los gases de escape. La cantidad de NOx se reduce aún… https://bit.ly/3H0aucP

Companies #Siemens Energy and Air Liquide have announced plans to create a joint venture focused on producing industrial-scale renewable hydrogen electrolysers in Europe.The move, announced on Thursday, represents the latest attempt to find a way to reduce the costs of producing “renewable” or “green” hydrogen and make the #green hydrogen… https://bit.ly/3ygEflV

🌐 #Netze BW tests #gas supply with 30 percent #hydrogen:

Distribution network operator Netze BW will enter a decisive phase in the coming weeks with a #pilot project to supply gas with almost one third hydrogen . In July, part of the natural gas network in #Öhringen (Hohenlohekreis) will be unbundled and supplied independently. According to the subsidiary EnBW, the proportion of hydrogen in this “island” is gradually increasing to 30 percent. Around 30 households are involved, said project manager Heike Grüner of the German Press Agency.With the “Öhringen Hydrogen Island”, Netze BW wants to demonstrate that it is already possible to inject up to 30 percent hydrogen into the natural gas grid, without the existing infrastructure having to be adapted to any great extent. Hydrogen is considered a climate-friendly alternative to natural gas, especially when it is produced with the help of #renewable #energies. However, the technology is not yet mature enough to… https://bit.ly/3ykBdhs

📰 Spain is betting big on the sustainable #green #hydrogen revolution:

The #decarbonisation of the planet with the horizon set for 2050 (with a scale in 2030) has become a global priority, driven from #Europe with a clear institutional commitment that has materialised in the huge investments of the #Next Generation funds. In this drive, some technologies will play an essential role, as is the case of green hydrogen. This unquestionable energy vector of the future is also part of a path in which large Spanish companies and SMEs, as well as research and training centres, are demonstrating international leadership in order to trace a virtuous circle of innovation, sustainability and… https://bit.ly/3P0TTIT

🌐 #Daimler Truck gives an insight into #hydrogen test #vehicles:

Daimler Truck also relies on #fuel cells for new drives for its #trucks. The trucks with hydrogen tanks will be presented on Monday (11:30 a.m.) in Wörth in the southern Palatinate. They are test vehicles that also run on public roads.
CEO Martin Daum announced that the first test fleets should be on the market by the middle of the decade. In the second half of the decade, the fuel cell truck will go into series production. It should have two #hydrogen tanks and a range of about 1000 kilometres.
The truck industry is under pressure from the EU to meet binding climate protection targets. New models should emit an average of 15 percent less carbon dioxide by 2025 and at least 30 percent by…https://bit.ly/3u79nD4
