100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply

HyGear has successfully commissioned its ASME certified Hydrogen Generation System (HGS) for Matheson Texas, which will produce 100 Nm3/h of hydrogen from natural gas. Matheson is one of the world’s largest suppliers of gases and gas handling equipment. The generated hydrogen will be used to provide decentralized users with merchant gas.

The HGS generates hydrogen through steam methane reforming of natural gas. HyGear’s reform reactor with proprietary catalyst technology re-uses the waste heat of the process to induce the reform reaction. This increases the process efficiency and decreases the energy consumption. The reform reactor is combined with highly effective Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) so that very high purity hydrogen can be obtained.
