Lummus, Biohydrogen Technologies partner to develop blue hydrogen technology
(WO) – Lummus Technology and Biohydrogen Technologies have announced an agreement to develop and deploy advanced synthesis gas reactor technology, primarily to produce blue hydrogen.
Lummus' Green Circle business unit will provide Biohydrogen Technologies expertise in hydrogen and synthesis gas plant design, reactor scale-up and design and proprietary equipment supply. This technology is an economically attractive solution to address the large-scale production of blue hydrogen. The technology is also differentiated from other possible solutions due to its higher thermal efficiency, lower capital cost, small footprint and ability to capture more than 99% of the carbon dioxide at pressure.
"The combination of Biohydrogen Technologies Intellectual Property and Green Circle / Lummus Technology skills in design, engineering and licensing will shortly allow bulk hydrogen production from natural gas with a thermal efficiency of 90% (LCV) and 99% CO2 capture to become a practical reality," said Geoff Weedon, CEO of Biohydrogen Technologies.
