Hynion and Greenlogix have signed an agreement to form a joint venture in order to commercialise a new production technology that produces hydrogen for Hynions hydrogen filling station.
As well as this, it will also make commercially attractive solid-state carbon as a second product line.
The ambition is to ensure a steady flow of hydrogen and carbon to meet the ever-increasing demand for clean fuel and new materials for high-tech constructions.
Both of the partners have tested the technology’s concept with positive results and are now ready to build a pilot plant to verify the technology in a real-world setup.
This will see a production plant from Greenlogix be integrated with a next-generation hydrogen station from Hynion with the exact location in Scandinavia will be announced in the future.
The pilot plant will deliver enough hydrogen to supply a smaller truck fleet or a taxi fleet of up to 200 taxis.
As well as this, it will produce solid-state carbon in qualities that are highly sought after in new high-tech applications.
The capacity can be expanded in a modular approach to meet increasing demand.
Ulf Hafseld, CEO of Hynion, said, “We are excited to enter into this collaboration with Greenlogix. By combining the plant and the station, we will make use of both product streams in a very efficient way.
“This setup will make hydrogen competitive with diesel for long-haul transports.
“In addition, there is a revenue stream from carbon sales, which makes it possible to move faster towards our target of becoming a profitable hydrogen fuel retailer.
“The pilot plant will be built to verify the concept and finetune the technology and later, we plan to expand with more stations with on-site production in Scandinavia and Europe.”
