‘New hydrogen technology emits nearly zero emissions’

‘New hydrogen technology emits nearly zero emissions’

Engineering company Kent and The University of Manchester have partnered with other organisations to produce new syngas and blue hydrogen technology which is believed to emit nearly zero carbon emissions.

With £5.1 million in funding from the Department of Energy Security and Net Zero, the RECYCLE project will help in the construction and testing of a hydrogen production unit at The University of Manchester.

The technology is based on a process called chemical looping which is able to separate and capture carbon at high purity.

The technology aims to ensure a cost-effective solution for hydrogen production, compared to other methods of producing blue hydrogen.

Luigi Crolla, Head of Energy Transition Technologies at Kent, said: "We are delighted to be part of this cutting-edge project. It is aligned with Kent’s purpose to be a catalyst for energy transition and an exciting addition to our blue hydrogen project portfolio.

"We look forward to working with The University of Manchester and the consortium partners to advance the progress of this novel low carbon hydrogen and carbon capture technology."
