Elsewhere, the Belgian company Tree Energy Solutions (TES) is accelerating its plans to develop the German port of Wilhelmshaven into a “world-wide” hub for the import of green gas, and the German engineering company MAN Energy Solutions will invest up to 500 million euros in its hydrogen-focused subsidiary H-TEC Systems.
Toyota Motor Corporation commissioned Japanese automobile company Yamaha Motor to develop a hydrogen-powered V8 engine for automobiles. “The unit is based on the 5.0 liter engine from the Lexus RC F luxury sports coupe, with modifications to the injectors, cylinder heads, intake manifold, etc., and delivers up to 450 bhp at 6,800 rpm and a maximum of 540 Nm of torque at 3,600 rpm,” the company said in a statement. Last year, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Subaru Corporation, Toyota Motor Corporation, Mazda Motor Corporation and Yamaha Motor have announced their intention to partner to research fuel options for internal combustion engines.
Based in Brussels Energy solutions for trees (TES) is accelerating its announced plans to develop the German port of Wilhelmshaven into a “global” green gas import hub. “TES Green hydrogen will be produced primarily using solar, wind and hydropower in countries with abundant renewable energy sources, after which CO2 will be added to make green CH4 which will be used as an energy carrier,” the company said on Wednesday. The methane will then be transported to Wilhelmshaven by a specially built fleet of ships. “In Wilhelmshaven, the green CH4 can be converted back to green hydrogen, with the resulting CO2 be captured and returned to producing countries by ship in a continuous closed-loop system.
Penn State Scientists unveiled a “highly sensitive system” to detect hydrogen evolution, which could contribute to the development of water fractionation processes and in general of the hydrogen sector. The “new system … is the most sensitive in the world,” said Venkatraman Gopalan, professor of materials science and engineering and physics at Penn State. According to the researchers, the tool can effectively screen for promising photocatalysts. “If you ranked low in both categories of hydrogen evolution rate and the mass of photocatalyst required, that means it is a really sensitive system for discovering new photocatalytic materials. And it turns out that our work ranked among the best in both categories,” said Huaiyu Wang, who led the study published in Review of Scientific Instruments.
German manufacturing and engineering company MAN energy solutions will invest up to 500 million euros in its subsidiary dedicated to hydrogen H-TEC systems In the years to come. “We are transforming H-TEC Systems into one of the world’s leading players in the field of PEM electrolysis. Over the next five to ten years, green hydrogen will become one of the most important primary energy sources for the global economy as it continues to decarbonise,” said Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Energy Solutions. H-TEC Systems would benefit from the close ties with MAN Energy Solutions, “but also from direct access to the expertise and experience of the Volkswagen Group, particularly in terms of production dimensioning and production activity in vendor-based series”.
Chemistry group based in Malmö PerstorpFinnish public energy company fortuneand based in Dusseldorf Unite presented a request for 97 million euros to the European Innovation Fund for Project Air, which aims to build a production plant methanol in Stenungssund, Sweden. “The project is possible thanks to an innovative use of biogas, hydrogen from electrolysis and tailings streams, as well as carbon dioxide recovered from Perstorp’s own facilities, to produce the methanol. This means the project will use up carbon atoms that would otherwise become CO2 emissions,” the companies wrote on Thursday. The total investment in Project Air is expected to be €236.3 million.
Indian industry body Indian Hydrogen Alliance (IH2A) proposed the creation of the H2Bharat Public-Private Working Group for a national plan for the development of a hydrogen pole on a gigawatt scale. The proposal was addressed to NITI Aayog and the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE), “with the aim of identifying at least five large GW-scale green hydrogen hubs for development in India, in the next 18 months. NITI Aayog and IH2A proposed to support development through a seven-point plan, including co-location of Green H2 production and consumption, public financing, private-public sector collaboration, green bonds sovereigns, synergies between the various national hydrogen hubs, and support for cluster development. “Our goal is to reduce the cost of green hydrogen to $2.5/kg by 2025 and $1/kg by 2030. This is only possible by increasing the size and scale of hydrogen manufacturing,” commented Amitabh Kant, Managing Director of NITI Aayog. .
Hydrogen Developer Green Hydrogen International (GHI) presented its Hydrogen City Projectt, an integrated hub for the production, storage and transport of green hydrogen Texas which would reach up to 60 GW. “The pipelines will deliver green hydrogen to Corpus Christi and Brownsville where it will be processed into green ammonia, sustainable aviation fuel and other products, or delivered by pipeline directly to hydrogen power plants and other end users. of the state,” the company wrote on its website. The project will be built gradually, like other hydrogen projects. The first phase, which should start operations in 2026, consists of 2 GW of production and two storage caverns at the Piedras Pintas salt dome. Onshore wind and solar power will power the electrolyzers. “Eventually, more than 50 caverns can be created at the Piedras Pintas salt dome, providing up to 6 TWh of energy storage.”
