Gasconsult seeks hydrogen liquefaction process patent
As an adjunct to its LNG liquefaction activity, Gasconsult has recently filed a patent application for a new hydrogen liquefaction process. Hydrogen, a clean burning zero-carbon fuel, is now seen as a major contributor to future energy supplies. It is widely predicted to be a core pillar of meeting net zero-carbon emission targets by 2050.
Liquefaction of hydrogen is very energy intensive. Existing plants consume 10–15 kWh/kg of LH2. At 6kWh/kg, Gasconsult’s new process reduces power demand by 40%–60% and uses readily available refrigerants.
LH2 can be the most effective means of hydrogen transportation. It facilitates hydrogen distribution to refueling stations and fleet depots; and enables bulk transportation and trading of energy in a manner similar to LNG. Liquefaction and storage of LH2 is core infrastructure for many clean energy applications including providing clean-fuel backup for variable output/intermittent renewable power.
Gasconsult is seeking a partner to further develop its hydrogen liquefaction technology and welcomes interested responses.
Best Practices in Supporting Front Line HPI Operations Remotely in Response to Covid-19
To ensure employee safety, HPI companies had to quickly pivot to a remote support model with many subject matter experts (SMEs) and engineering staff working remotely supporting front line, sequestered critical operations and field operators.
What are the best practices and lessons learned from this new remote operational support model? What have been technologies and work processes that are enabling effective and efficient remote operational support? Is this the “new norm” going forward even when the impact of Covid-19 abates? If not, how will remote support of critical operations be changed?
If this topic and questions are of interest to you and your organization, please attend this special HPI webinar with a panel of leading industry customer experts who will discuss their perspectives. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions for the panelists.
