German hydrogen storage startup Hydrogenious Technologies has launched its first commercial hydrogen storage and logistics system using liquid organic hydrogen carrier (LOHC) technology.
The system includes a Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) electrolyzer that generates hydrogen using solar power and a Hydrogenious StorageBOX that uses LOHC technology to enable storage without losses for extended periods of time.
This is the first demonstration of the LOHC technology on a commercial scale.
Andrew Hinkly, Executive Head of Marketing at Anglo American Platinum, which holds shares in Hydrogenious Technology, said, “We are hugely proud of what Hydrogenious Technologies have been able to achieve in what has been a rather short space of time. The inauguration laid the pathway for the first commercial deliveries and a growing order book.”
Anglo American Platinum also invested in Hydrogenious Technologies’ first financing round in 2014.
Hyundai Motor UK has today officially handed over an example of the world’s first mass-produced fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV), the ix35 Fuel Cell, to global diversified mining business Anglo American – the world’s leading producer of platinum – which is a key ingredient in FCEV technology.
The United Hydrogen Group (UHG) has received a $4m investment from platinum group metals producer, Anglo American Platinum (Amplats), to help reduce delivery costs of hydrogen (H2) and support development of H2 refuelling stations for fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) in the north-east of the US.
Consisting of a single electron orbiting a single proton, hydrogen is the simplest element in the universe – but this simple element can release almost three-times more energy than natural gas. The fact that hydrogen fuel comes with zero carbon emissions (its only by-product is water and heat), has made ...
