Carbon Clean and BayoTech have joined forces to cut the cost of small-scale hydrogen and CO2 production.

Such news is the results of a newly signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), through which the duo will explore commercial hydrogen and carbon capture and utilisation opportunities.

As a first step, Carbon Clean and BayoTech said they will work together on a demonstration facility to evaluate, design, and operate a carbon capture plant at a BayoTech site in North America.

Expected to be operational by the end of 2022, the facility will feature BayoTech’s H2-1000 hydrogen generation unit and Carbon Clean’s carbon capture technology.

Commenting on the collaboration, Aniruddha Sharma, CEO of Carbon Clean, said, “We are excited about this breakthrough partnership with BayoTech that is going to enable the growth of the green hydrogen economy.”

“We look forward to this relationship growing to realise our shared objective of delivering affordable and modular hydrogen/CO2 solutions to drive the transition to a greener future.”

Mo Vargas, CEO of BayoTech, added, “We are thrilled to be working with a world leading company like Carbon Clean to deliver low and negative carbon hydrogen projects.”

“The combination of technologies provides an ideal solution to industrial decarbonisation and clean fuel production that is deployable today.”

Small scale hydrogen/CO2 solutions are optimal for biogenic sources such as anaerobic digestion from landfill, organic waste, and biomass plants where carbon negative hydrogen can be produced.

According to duo, using dual solutions of hydrogen generation and CO2 recovery is essential to further develop the growing hydrogen economy.

With both companies focused on delivering scalable and modular technology, the partnership will accelerate the adoption of the circular carbon economy, converting resources into valuable low, zero and negative carbon fuel.
