📉 Hydrogen boom deflates: costs rise by up to 50%.

📉 The hydrogen boom is starting to deflate. Rising financial and equipment costs – mainly the cost of electrolysers – are jeopardising projects and lowering the impact of the deployment of public subsidies being put on the table by both Europe and the United States, according to the International Energy Agency’s annual hydrogen report.

Inflation and rising interest rates threaten the ability to finance projects throughout the value chain. For hydrogen produced from renewable electricity, for example, a 3 percentage point increase in the cost of capital can increase the total project cost by almost a third.

Several projects have revised their initial cost estimates upwards by as much as 50%, according to the Agency. Inflationary pressures have coincided with a recent drop in natural gas prices, especially in Europe, and supply chain disruptions that have affected project timelines.

🧪 A #Japanese team demonstrates continuous hydrogen production using #formic acid.

🧪 Japanese researchers have used a polyethylenimine (PEI)-based iridium-immobilised catalyst for hydrogen production by dehydrogenation of formic acid (CH₂O₂) (FADH). His article appears in the journal ChemSusChem.

🔬 The iridium complex and its ligand were crosslinked with PEI for the catalyst; the iridium content could be easily varied in the range of 1 to 10%. The structure of the iridium-immobilised catalyst was confirmed by solid-state NMR, DNP NMR and FT-IR spectroscopies.

🔥 The iridium-immobilised catalyst with PEI showed excellent catalytic activity for FADH, exhibiting the highest catalyst turnover frequency (TOF) value of 73,200 h^-1 and a large turnover number (TON) value of over 201,500. The catalyst could be used for continuous hydrogen production via FADH, exhibiting high durability for more than 1,150 h without any degradation in catalytic activity. The obtained hydrogen gas was evaluated for power generation using a standard fuel cell and 5 h of stable power generation was achieved.
