The European Commission says it will establish a new European hydrogen bank by the end of this year, and also plans to distribute 10-year contracts in a new hydrogen auction. Linde Engineering, on the other hand, is collaborating with several other companies to test solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOEC) and ammonia cracking technology.
Ceres Power has signed agreements with Linde Engineering and Bosch to jointly strengthen the performance, cost and functionality of its SOEC technology. Companies said they plan to launch a two-year, 1 MW SOEC pilot system in 2024 at the Bosch plant in Stuttgart, Germany. Ceres Power is now testing its first 100 kW electrolysis module, and its preliminary results give confidence that the technology can produce green hydrogen at less than 40 kWh/kg, which is claimed to be 25% more efficient than established low-temperature technologies.
Saudi Aramco and Linde Engineering have agreed to jointly develop new ammonia cracking technology. “A potential differentiator of this new technology is the ammonia cracking catalyst jointly developed by Aramco and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), which will be evaluated against other catalysts,” Saudi Aramco said. It is working with Linde Engineering to demonstrate new ammonia cracking technology at a demonstration plant in northern Germany.
Fortescue Future Industries is agreed to develop a green energy and fertilizer project in Kenya. The Government of Kenya provides support for critical resources, infrastructure and distribution. The main focus is on the production of green ammonia fertilizers.
Innovation NorwayThe Norwegian government’s support platform for industrial innovation and development has granted NOK 50 million ($4.63 million) in development support to TECO 2030. The funds support the implementation of TECO 2030’s PEM fuel cell technology in maritime and heavy industry applications. – customs industry.
Fenton Mobility products has selected Ideanomics to build five hydrogen-powered, zero-emission vans for the Rochester-Genesee Regional Transit Authority (RGRTA). RGRTA order value exceeds 2.2 million dollars. The costs of the buses are covered by funds a 23 million dollars grants RGRTA from the US Department of Transportation to deploy hydrogen fuel cell buses,” Ideanomics said.
Italy is published call for proposals to select de-coaling projects that use green hydrogen in sectors with difficult emissions. The total budget is 1 billion euros.
