Trio aims to bring 500kg per day green hydrogen plant online in Q2 2024

Plans for what is believed to be the world’s first 500kg per day green hydrogen plant have been announced in Houston, Texas – and it could be the first of many planned by the trio behind it.

In what has been described as a “historic collaboration,” HNO International, Element One Energy, and Pneumatic and Hydraulic Company (PHC) have joined forces to try and get the plant onstream by Q2 2024.

Donald Owens, Chairman at HNO International, described the collaboration as a major milestone in the commitment to sustainable energy solutions.

He continued, “This facility is just the beginning, as we have plans for additional installations in 2024, 2025, and beyond, further solidifying our position as leaders in the hydrogen energy infrastructure sector.”

For hydrogen production, the plant will utilise HNO International’s Scalable Hydrogen Energy Platform (SHEP™). The scalable solution produces, stores, and dispenses green hydrogen from water using a 1.25MW electrolyser.

The scalability of the technology is what allows it to produce beyond 5,000kg of hydrogen per day with additional electrolysers and other integrated components.

And whilst its output is huge, its size is not. As HNO explains, SHEP’s compact footprint requires less than 3,000 sq ft, providing flexibility in installation across diverse locations.

Known as the “energy capital of the world,” and with more than 1,000 miles of dedicated hydrogen pipelines, 48 hydrogen production plants, and dozens of hydrogen end-use applications, the Gulf Coast already produces a third of the nation’s hydrogen gas annually.

Decarbonisation Summit 2024: Industrial Gases and Clean Energies 3.0

 The global industrial gas and equipment business has an imperative role to play in the future of clean fuels and decarbonisation. The energy transition simply won’t happen without it.

At the same time, the industry has its own activities to decarbonise and circular economies to carve out – think green air gases and bio-based carbon dioxide (CO2), as well as CO2 utilisation and e-fuels, and so much more besides.

There are pathways to progress and questions to answer on this journey, not least:

  • What are the compelling clean fuels and what do the pathways to production look like?
  • How can the gases industry participate in this playground of opportunities?
  • What can other alternative fuels mean for the CO2 industry and its stakeholders?

These questions and more will be in the spotlight at gasworld’s Decarbonisation Summit in April 2024. Interested in speaking and contributing? Get in touch with our Content Director, Rob Cockerill, at [email protected]
