Raven SR And Chart Industries To Work Together On Hydrogen And CO2 Capture

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on the Carbon Herald.

These are the first two paragraphs.

Renewable fuels company Raven SR and Chart Industries announced they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to work together on the liquefaction, storage, and transportation of hydrogen as well as pure CO2 produced from Raven SR’s non-combustion Steam/CO2 Reformation process that converts waste to renewable fuel.

Raven SR uses local waste as feedstock to produce transportation-grade H2 and synthetic fuels, including sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The carbon dioxide, which is a byproduct of the process, when liquefied is used for food and beverage production, fertilizer production, and other consumer needs and as a feedstock for concrete or alternative fuels.

Note.

  1. It appears like I do, that the companies feel it is better to use carbon dioxide, rather than store it.
  2. It also looks like they have improved the steam reforming process for making hydrogen.
  3. An advantage of the process is that it doesn’t need pure water.

There is a video in the article, which I suggest you watch.

It may be one of those processes that dies a premature and messy death, but my knowledge of catalysts and strange ways to produce gases like hydrogen and acetylene from working at ICI in the early 1970s, tells me that someone will develop a viable route to create hydrogen, that is better than the methods used today,
