A better way to produce green hydrogen
from renewable energy
The future of global decarbonisation
CATAGEN’s recirculating gas reactor has been applied to develop a technology for high-efficiency green hydrogen production. A reliable and scalable source of green hydrogen from water.
The process uses water as the net feedstock and renewable electricity enabling zero-carbon Green Hydrogen production. There are no electrolysers used in this process; the proposed CATAGEN Green Hydrogen Generator uses a multi-stage thermochemical process in a recirculating reactor to split water.
Water and renewable energy in, hydrogen and oxygen out.
What is Hydrogen?
CATAGEN’s ClimaHtech HGEN is a reliable and scalable source of hydrogen and oxygen, produced from water and renewable energy without the use of electrolysis.
Renewable hydrogen is an alternative fuel to supply non-fossil energy demands for power generation, mobility, industry and heating to transition to a decarbonised world. It can be used:
- To achieve transport decarbonisation when converted into other zero-carbon fuels for shipping and aviation
- To power high heat industry activities such as power generation, steel, cement, and glass production
- Green hydrogen can be produced locally by any country using native renewable energy resources providing energy security.
- Energy efficient production of green hydrogen is a key challenge for the Hydrogen economy.
Green hydrogen can be produced locally by any country with renewable energy resources providing energy security. Energy efficient production of green hydrogen is a key challenge for the Hydrogen economy. It’s currently expensive to produce at scale, to transport and to store however…
Green hydrogen could become a US$10 trillion addressable market by 2050 according to Goldman Sachs. (Forbes)
Scales Quadratically – Unlike electrolysers but in a similar way to other industrial processes.
High Tolerance to Intermittent Power – Thermal inertia allows maximum energy utilisation from intermittent power supplies.
Conventional supply chain compatibility – Allows for rapid manufacturability.
Modular component designed to integrate into ClimaHtech system – Compatible with other low carbon technologies.
CATAGEN GREEN HYDROGEN GENERATOR
CATAGEN is developing a Green Hydrogen solution based on its core competencies, skilled team and patented technologies.
CATAGEN’s recirculating gas reactor technology has been used to create a production machine for high-efficiency green hydrogen production. The process uses water as the net feedstock and renewable electricity enabling zero-carbon Green Hydrogen production.
There are no electrolysers used in this process; the proposed CATAGEN Green Hydrogen Generator uses a multi-stage thermochemical process in a recirculating reactor to split water.
ClimaHtech BIOHGEN uses CATAGEN’s proprietary technology to produce cost-effective biohydrogen from sustainable bio-organic sources. * This energy efficient approach can accelerate the route to a Net Zero carbon hydrogen economy. Biogenic CO2 is a valuable by-product of the process that can displace fossil CO2 use in the food and drink industry, agriculture, and other industrial applications.
BIOHGEN products can be combined using the ClimaHtech EFUEL GEN to produce advanced biofuels.
Biohydrogen enables the decarbonisation of hard-to-decarbonise sectors such as:
- Heavy industry,
*Non-food or land competitive biomasses.
Compressor (Hydrogen Storage)
Is a transformative technology to reduce the cost of compression, making it more energy efficient and increasing the delivery capacity. Conventional technology has been re-imagined in ClimaHtech to improve operability and reduce energy consumption which impact the levelised cost of hydrogen production, delivery and other benefits.
The CATAGEN compressor has been designed as an enabling technology to support the widespread integration of hydrogen as a fuel source and energy carrier. The compressor’s novel and elegant design offers best-in-class thermodynamic efficiency (cost reduction), and when complemented by its operational flexibility, facilitates in-service energy savings (cost reduction).
For specific applications there is an additional third major advantage wherein the ClimaHtech COMPRESSOR supports optimised utilisation of stored hydrogen, supporting further cost reduction.
ClimaHtech CAPTURE uses low grade waste heat to capture CO2 resulting in very low operating costs. Designed to work alongside ClimaHtech HGEN to provide both green hydrogen and the CO2 required to produce E-fuel, ClimaHtech CAPTURE can also be used to remove CO2 for other purposes.
