Kent and the University of Manchester have teamed up to produce a new syngas and blue hydrogen technology with “nearly zero” direct carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Dubbed the RECYCLE (Rethinking Low Carbon hYdrogen Production by Chemical Looping rEforming) project, backed with £5.1m of funding from the UK Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, will construct and test the hydrogen production unit at the University of Manchester.
Based on chemical looping reforming, using fixed bed reactors, allowing for the use of modular units for hydrogen production using different feedstocks, the technology is said to feature inherent CO2 capture and separation at high purity.
The partners say the RECYCLE process provides a flexible method for hydrogen and/or syngas production, while also offering potential economic benefits over other blue hydrogen production pathways.
