🌞🔬 Titanium and copper are applied to increase the production of green hydrogen in solar thermal power plants.

#hydrogen #solar #energy #research #efficiency

💡⚗️ A research team from the Materials Science Institute of Seville, the Almeria Solar Platform (CIEMAT) and the Autonomous University of Barcelona has confirmed in a pilot plant that the combination of titanium and copper oxides extends green hydrogen production by up to 10 % compared to other systems.

In order to increase the efficiency in obtaining hydrogen in solar plants, researchers work with the aim of optimising the characteristics of all the players involved: from the design of the mirrors facing the sun, the material the tubes are made of, the use of alcohols used together with water or the type of catalysts used, the Descubre Foundation reported in a statement.

💰🇨🇳 Hydrogen prices in China are several times lower than in the US and Europe.

#hydrogen #China #prices #USA #Europe #Sany

The Chinese estimate that Sany, thanks to the integration of hydrogen production and refuelling services, provides hydrogen at a price comparable to diesel. Several times cheaper than in California.

According to Hydrogen Insight, China’s largest green hydrogen refuelling station sells H2 for 1/7th of the price of H2 in California. It quotes the Chinese newspaper Hunan Daily, which reports that the integration of renewable hydrogen production and refuelling in a single complex allows the fuel to be delivered at a price of 35 yuan/kg ($4.85/kg), almost the same price as diesel.

🚿🍾 “Heating with hydrogen is like showering with champagne”: a letter to German municipalities warns against the gas lobby.

#hydrogen #heating #champagne #gas #lobby #Germany #municipalities

📝 The law adopts a technology-neutral approach, so municipalities are basically free to choose which technology they use; the only decisive factor is that 65 percent of them will be powered by renewables from 2025, and this proportion will gradually increase to 100 percent by 2045. The possibilities for generating renewable heat are manifold: geothermal energy, waste heat, wastewater, biomethane, biomass, green hydrogen – all this and more is recognised as a solution in law.

🏭💼 These are the jobs that will be generated by the new hydrogen plant in Cerceda, La Coruña.

#hydrogen plant #jobs #energy #Spain #hydrogen production

Spain is one of the countries in the world with the most hydrogen production projects underway, with more than a hundred of them. One of them is the one designed by the companies Repsol, Naturgy and Reganosa in the municipality of Cerceda, which is intended to supply the La Coruña refinery. The Xunta de Galicia recently opened the technical proposal to the public, so that interested parties can present any allegations they consider relevant. This process also allows more details to be known about what the new plant will be like, as El Debate has already reported, and the jobs that are expected to be created with its start-up.

👷‍♂️👷‍♀️ The documentation received by the Galician government reveals that an estimated 311 workers will be needed during the construction phase of the facility and the piping for transporting the hydrogen. As for the indirect employment that may be generated through subcontractors, the figure is 517. Once the works are completed, the promoters estimate that 17 technicians will be required to operate the plant, while a further 29 jobs are expected to be created indirectly. It is estimated that the plant will operate continuously 24 hours a day, every day of the year, except for maintenance stoppages.

💡 The hydrogen production bench test facility at the Kola nuclear power plant is planned to be commissioned by the end of 2025. In the future, this technology can be developed throughout the country. On 13 March 2024, in Polyarnye Zori, Murmansk region (city where the Kola NPP is located), public discussions will be held on the design documentation “Bench test complex for hydrogen production with a capacity of 200 Nm3/h”, including preliminary materials to assess its impact on the environment.

💡 Recall that the Kola nuclear power plant (part of the control loop of the Rosenergoatom company, the Electric Power Division of Rosatom State Corporation) was chosen as a pilot site for the creation of a bench test complex (SIC) for hydrogen production and its circulation.

💡 One of the main factors determining the choice of the site was the excess power generated by the Kola Nuclear Power Plant, as well as the availability of all the necessary infrastructure and expertise to produce hydrogen in small quantities for the company’s own needs.

💡 The real problem for green hydrogen is the electricity grid, not water.

Many argue that Andalusia can maintain its leading position in the production of green hydrogen in the coming decades. European directives focused on decarbonisation and the industry’s interest in generating more decontaminating processes have made the region a spearhead in this sector due to its own characteristics for producing renewable energies.

“This exciting project is one of several hydrogen initiatives that MAN Energy Solutions is currently implementing in the two- and four-stroke sectors,” reports Gunnar Stiesch, Technical Director of MAN Energy Solutions. In this way, Mitsui has set new standards in decarbonisation.

Under different load and operating conditions, stable operation, including hydrogen combustion, was achieved. Greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced by up to 95 per cent, with the rest coming from the pilot fuel used during the tests, he said. Brian Østergaard Sørensen, Vice President of MAN Energy Solutions: “This research is very enlightening and gives us a lot to think about. MAN Energy Solutions is continuously committed to decarbonisation in the maritime industry, working with renowned partners such as Mitsui as often as possible.”

Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding has announced the successful testing of a MAN two-stroke engine with up to 100% hydrogen fuelling at its Tamano plant. A world first for the marine industry.

🛠️ In collaboration with Man Energy Solutions, Mitsui has converted one of the four cylinders of a Man B&W ME-GI engine running on LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas). As stated in a press release, Mitsui has adapted this engine to run on hydrogen as part of a project supported by the Japanese government.

One of the engine’s four cylinders has been adapted to run on hydrogen. The engine is 100 per cent charged with this high-pressure hydrogen gas, with no problems or leaks. Mitsui reports that combustion is easy, as is hydrogen supply. According to the Japanese player, this is the world’s first successful test of hydrogen combustion in a large two-stroke marine engine. The company also says it intends to acquire the storage and distribution technologies to be able to provide hydrogen combustion for shipping. For Mitsui, this is the next generation fuel.

Green hydrogen is a market that is benefiting from the current positive conditions and could gain momentum in the future. These companies, ETFs and equity funds are already investing in the sector.

Green hydrogen is an important component of the energy transition. In the future, it is intended to help reduce CO2 emissions, especially in areas that cannot be electrified.

💡 One example of this is air travel. Airbus is already working on the realisation of the first hydrogen aircraft, which will be launched on the market in 2035. In this way, climate-friendly long-haul flights will also become a reality in the future. At the same time, several airports are already starting to build the corresponding refuelling infrastructure.
