SoHHytec converts Solar Energy to Hydrogen

Traditional production of hydrogen utilizes electricity from the grid, powered by fossil fuels, as the energy source. This is not sustainable as it increases dependency on non-renewable sources of energy. The development of different clean energy sources also impacts hydrogen production. For example, solar energy is used to power the electrolysis of water that produces hydrogen. Startups develop solutions that utilize renewables to produce hydrogen to decrease carbon footprint and GHG emissions.

Swiss startup SoHHytec develops solar power solutions to produce hydrogen. Its technology, Arb is an integrated photo-electrochemical device that uses concentrated solar radiation and water to produce hydrogen, electricity, and heat. The startup installs custom solutions based on geographic location, fuel, electricity and heat requirements of the customer, and integrates Arb into required facility spaces.

Eco-Waste Power produces Hydrogen from Waste

Waste generation and accumulation leads to land and water pollution, while the management of waste is becoming a global issue. According to the World Bank, 5% of global carbon emissions are a result of waste generation. Thus, environment-friendly treatment of waste is an urgent need, and startups develop solutions for green waste management. For example, solutions that produce hydrogen from waste with the help of gasifiers tackle both landfill waste management and energy challenges. Gasification methods that do not depend on fossil fuels also promote sustainability.

US-based startup Eco-Waste Power converts municipal solid waste to usable hydrogen fuel. Eco-Waste Power’s solid waste gasifier consumes 1000 tons of waste per day. It converts the waste into hydrogen without the use of fossil fuels or incineration. The solution uses alternative fuels to power generators and solves landfill management needs for municipalities. As there is no incineration of the waste, it also produces hydrogen without impacting air quality in the general vicinity of the treatment center.

Hymeth creates Advanced Electrolyzers

Existing electrolyzers are relatively inefficient and costly for large-scale hydrogen production. Alkaline and proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzers both require working conditions such as low pressure or low temperature that do not allow for optimal production of hydrogen. Startups create alternate electrolyzers, which are more cost- and energy efficient, and produce more hydrogen as compared to extant electrolyzers.

Danish startup Hymeth creates a low temperature, high pressure electrolyzer. The startup’s electrolyzer, Hyaeon, operates at 700 bars and provides high purity hydrogen with high efficiency. The high-pressure electrolysis process eliminates the need for an external hydrogen compressor. Hyaeon comes with a built-in cooling system and a gas dryer that allows the hydrogen to be processed directly after it is produced. High pressure electrolysis is also cost-effective as power consumption is lower for producing a certain amount of hydrogen.

Clean Power Hydrogen (CPH2) develops Membrane-Free Electrolysis

PEM electrolysis is typically used for production of hydrogen. However, water evaporation rate management, degradation of catalyst, and temperature parameters limit its efficiency. These factors necessitate the development of electrolysis processes that do not need a membrane, eliminating the limitations of traditional electrolysis equipment. Startups develop solutions to produce hydrogen for use in its purest form without putting a strain on the electrolyzer.

British startup Clean Power Hydrogen develops solutions for membrane-free electrolysis. The startup’s electrolyzer, MFE440, is a 40 foot ISO container which requires 2000 kVA to operate and has the capacity to produce 25 tonnes of hydrogen per month. CPH2’s technology increases the life-span of the hydrogen production system, and at the same time reduces operating expenditures and levelised cost of hydrogen. It’s modular design also allows for scalability.

Qairos Energies converts Biomass to Green Hydrogen

Gasification of biomass, a renewable organic resource, produces green hydrogen. Green hydrogen is a contributor towards a carbon-neutral economy and hydrogen obtained from biomass is more sustainable as compared to hydrogen obtained via fossil fuels. Because of this, startups develop solutions that enable utilization of biomass to form usable hydrogen.

French startup Qairos Energies develops biomass-to-hydrogen solutions. After processing the biomass, it uses carbon dioxide for pyro-gasification to convert biomass into methane and hydrogen. The hydrogen thus obtained is then allowed to react with water to produce hydrogen fuel. Carbon dioxide is a by-product in this process, and this carbon dioxide is reused for pyro-gasification. The process also produces other useful products such as methane and mineral fertilizers.
