New Device Separates Hydrogen From Natural Gas When The Two Gases Are Blended In Pipelines

The title of this post, is the same as that of on this article on Hydrogen Fuel News.

This is the introductory paragraph.

With clean hydrogen gaining recognition worldwide as the carbon-free fuel capable of making a significant contribution to addressing climate change, Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) today announced it will field test a new technology that can simultaneously separate and compress hydrogen from a blend of hydrogen and natural gas.

It may sound rather mundane, but it means, you can convert surplus electricity into hydrogen and blend it with natural gas and distribute it in the local natural gas grid.

  • As natural gas grids can contain a proportion of hydrogen, this shouldn’t be  a problem.
  • Any user, who needs hydrogen connects one of these clever devices to the grid and it separates out the hydrogen, for your use.
  • All very simple and efficient, as you don’t need a second gas grid for hydrogen.

I very much like this idea, which was developed by a Dutch company called HyET Hydrogen.

There is also an explanatory video.

This invention could change the world!
