Hydrogen

Hydrogen (H2) is a fast burning gas with a high laminar flame speed that lacks both colour and smell. Hydrogen is a fuel which is well suited as an existing and future fuel for gas engines.

Hydrogen is classified into “green hydrogen” (a renewable gas) that produced via the electrolysis of water using surplus renewable electricity, or “blue hydrogen” that produced via steam reforming of methane whether that be derived from natural gas or renewable biomethane. Many plans link steam reforming to carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS).

Hydrogen can readily be used in gas engines, either directly but more commonly blended with other gases. These can include methane (CH4) whether that be from natural gas or renewable biomethane.

Hydrogen is also commonly produced as a blend with other gases as furnace gas produced in furnaces during the production of iron, ferrochrome and other metals.

Hydrogen can be a component of syngas, produced during the gasification of organic materials.

If you have a power generation project either fully or partly including hydrogen, please contact us to discuss your opportunity in more depth.

Any Further Questions?

If you have any technical questions that need answering, would like to arrange to speak to a sales advisor or book a feasibility study.
