Hydrogen Fuel Pioneer Wins £247k Funding For Carbon Capture Tech

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

This is the introductory paragraph.

UK-based waste-to-hydrogen specialist Compact Syngas Solutions (CSS) has won £246,568 from the Hydrogen BECCS (bioenergy with carbon capture and storage) Innovation Programme.

I first wrote about Compact Syngas Solutions, in Welsh Firm Wins £300K BEIS Grant To Advance Hydrogen Fuel Tech.

Compact Syngas Solutions appear to be developing a process to turn waste, that would otherwise go to landfill, into green hydrogen.

  • The first stage turns the waste into syngas using gasification.
  • This process produces carbon dioxide, which must be captured.
  • Compact Syngas Solutions seem to have found a chemical mechanism, that uses water to capture this carbon dioxide instead of ammonia-derived amines.

The last two paragraphs of the article state Compact Syngas Solutions’s plans.

Intended to be portable, CSS plans to develop ten Micro H2 hubs complete with four gasifiers.

Capable of producing 60kg of hydrogen and capturing 3.1kg of CO2 per day, the technology could contribute to full-scale Waste-to-Syngas-Liquid-Fuel facilities, leading to a 50,100 tonne CO2 capture capacity in the UK.

I feel, that if this technology can be made to work at scale, then Compact Syngas Solutions will have a viable way to make green hydrogen.

Welsh Firm Wins £300K BEIS Grant To Advance Hydrogen Fuel Tech

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Wales247.

This is the first two paragraphs.

A gasification pioneer aims to seal the UK’s low-carbon future after winning a Government grant worth nearly £300,000 to develop waste-to-hydrogen production technology, innovation funding specialist Catax can reveal.

Compact Syngas Solutions (CSS), based in Deeside, Wales, has secured £299,886 from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) with the help of Catax. The funding comes from the Low Carbon Hydrogen Supply 2 Programme, which is part of the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio.

Note.

  1. The objective is produce syngas or green hydrogen from waste that would normally be sent to landfill.
  2. Syngas, or synthesis gas, is a fuel gas mixture consisting primarily of hydrogen, carbon monoxide, and very often some carbon dioxide.
  3. Syngas can be used as a fuel in internal combustion engines.

The name of the company; Compact Syngas Solutions could indicate that the company aim to have a compact system to produce syngas or green hydrogen.

I have come across other companies looking at waste diverted from landfill to create aviation fuel, diesel or hydrogen.

I have invested in one; Velocys, through the Stock Market, as I feel this area of technology will be big in the future.

Compact Syngas Solutions seem to have a different take. However like many other, I suspect catalysts are involved.

Conclusion

I think, this will be a company to watch.
