A new collaboration has been announced between Johnson Matthey and 8 Rivers Capital towards the commercialisation of clean hydrogen
They have signed a memorandum of understanding to combine 8 Rivers’ carbon capture technology with Johnson Matthey’s technology for the production of blue hydrogen.
Johnson Matthey’s technology is based on its autothermal and gas heated reforming technologies which enable the production of hydrogen with 98% less emissions when compared to conventional processes.
The collaboration aims to accelerate the rollout of global projects producing clean fuels, which could include hydrogen, ammonia and sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs), incorporating up to nearly 100% carbon capture.
Cam Hosie, Chief Executive of 8 Rivers Capital said: “Hydrogen will play a critical role in helping the world to achieve net zero targets by addressing hard-to-decarbonise sectors, from fertiliser manufacture to global shipping fleets.
“8 Rivers has been driving the energy transition for a decade and working together with Johnson Matthey will enable collaboration on future low emission global hydrogen projects.”
