HyGear has successfully commissioned ASME certified Hydrogen Generation System (HGS) for Matheson, Texas – which will produce 100Nm3/h of hydrogen from natural gas.

Matheson is one of the world’s largest suppliers of gases and gas handling equipment. The generated hydrogen will be used to provide decentralised users with merchant gas.

The HGS generates hydrogen by steam methane reforming of natural gas. HyGear’s reform reactor with proprietary catalyst technology re-uses the waste heat of the process to induce the reform reaction. This increases the process efficiency and decreases the energy consumption. The reform reactor is combined with highly effective Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) so that very high purity hydrogen can be obtained.
