Key Objectives of the project  The overall objective of ‘HyTIME’ is to accelerate the implementation of an industrial bioprocess for decentral hydrogen production systems using 2nd generation biomass.  The target of this project is to construct a prototype process based on fermentation of biomass for delivering 1-10 kg hydrogen/d and to develop a biohydrogen production system as a stepping stone to pre-commercial application. The objective of HyTIME is to expand the unique strategy of thermophilic dark fermentation and to add an alternative approach in combining the...

Hy2Seps-2

Hy2Seps-2 Logo
Key Objectives of the project The main goal of the proposed work is the design and testing of hybrid separation schemes that combine Membrane and Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technology for the purification of H2 from a reformate stream that also contains CO2, CO, CH4, and N2. A hybrid process should combine the very high throughput and purity of a PSA process with a membrane separation process which has lower operating costs. The project focus is on small-scale PSA units, which have to operate at relatively low feed pressures (<10 atm, compared to ~30 atm for large-scale units),...

IDEALHY

IDEALHY Logo
Key Objectives of the project IDEALHY brings together world experts to develop a generic process design and plan for a prospective large scale demonstration of efficient hydrogen liquefaction in the range of up to 200 tonnes per day. This represents a substantial scale up compared to proposed and existing hydrogen liquefaction plants in Europe. The project carries out a detailed investigation of different steps in the liquefaction process, bringing innovations and greater integration in an effort to reduce specific energy consumption by 50% compared to existing plants, and...
