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.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
Following the successful GasPro Webcast Symposium in October 2019, the third GasPro Webcast Symposium will take place on October 21, 2020.
The 2019 webcast drew attendees from around the world, with more than 80% of the audience working in company management or engineering divisions.
The 2020 web event will gather experts in the fields of LNG, gas processing and process safety to share market, operations and engineering technology and trends with our audience.
Attendees of the 2020 webcast will learn about market solutions and technology deployments in a number of areas: LNG delivery infrastructure, small-scale desulfurization for NGL, H2S removal for gas treating, process safety for safety instrumented systems, small-scale LNG project design, and advances in freeze component removal for LNG.
