Johnson Matthey has been awarded for its Low Carbon Hydrogen (LCH™) technology at this year’s IChemE Awards.
The UK-based sustainable technologies company won the Energy Award at the annual event, which celebrates chemical, process and biochemical engineering excellence.
Utilised for the production of blue hydrogen, Johnson Matthey’s LCH™ process is capable of reducing the carbon emissions of a stream methane reforming process by up to 98%.
Jane Toogood, Sector Chief Executive at Johnson Matthey, said, “JM has a really exciting opportunity in the hydrogen space.”
“Our leading blue hydrogen technology, which is more efficient than any other commercial process, our established and growing fuel cells business, and our expertise in green hydrogen are all receiving further investment meaning we’re well placed to support customers and enable the scale up of the new hydrogen economy, on both the demand and application side.”
Mark McKenna, Syngas Technology Manager at Johnson Matthey, added, “It’s an honour for JM’s technology to be recognised by IChemE, particularly given the quality of the other finalists who shared some inspiring presentations.”
“I’m delighted to have received the award on behalf of the team and would like to dedicate it to all my colleagues here at JM who are playing a part in developing new hydrogen technology that will enable a cleaner, healthier future.”
