Updated: Hycamite breaks ground on 2,000 tonne hydrogen production facility

Hycamite has begun construction on its Customer Sample Facility (CSF) in Kokkola, Finland, expected to produce 2,000 tonnes of hydrogen.

The construction phase at the Kokkola Industrial Park was announced after all the necessary permits from the authorities were received.

Hycamite intends to demonstrate the viability of methane-splitting technology, decomposing large volumes of methane into hydrogen and carbon whilst avoiding the release of any greenhouse gases. The nominal capacity of the CSF will reach 2,000 tonnes of hydrogen and 6,000 tonnes of carbon once the project is completed.

Hycamite’s technology requires only 13% of the energy needed to produce hydrogen through electrolysis. By utilising feedstock for geologic natural gas, biomethane or synthetic natural gas, the production can scale up rapidly.
