Hydrogen pilot to be constructed at Cranfield University

A hydrogen pilot plant will be constructed at Cranfield University this year and will become operational later in 2021.

The new pilot is a result of the Bulk Hydrogen Production by Sorbent Enhanced Steam Reforming (HyPER project), an international collaboration led by Cranfield University, which is set to examine the potential of low-carbon hydrogen.

The state-of-the-art 1.5MWth pilot plant at Cranfield University will test an innovative hydrogen production technology that substantially reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
