For liquid hydrogen (LH2) to become an energy carrier in energy commodity markets at scales comparable to for instance LNG, liquefier capacities must be scaled up several orders of magnitude. While state-of-the-art liquefiers can provide specific power requirements down to 10 kWh/kg, a long-term...

Low-carbon hydrogen is considered as one of the key measures to decarbonise continental Europe and Japan. Northern Norway has abundant renewable energy and natural gas resources which can be converted to low-carbon hydrogen. However, Norway is located relatively far away from these markets and...

The recent development of the protonic membrane reformer (PMR) technology allows an energy efficient hydrogen production from natural gas. To liquefy and separate CO2 from the retentate gas of the PMR, various low temperature processes are modelled and compared. The optimization results indicate...

This paper compares the techno-economic performances of three technologies for CO2 capture from a lignite-based IGCC power plant located in the Czech Republic: (1) Physical absorption with a Rectisol-based process; (2) Polymeric CO2-selective membrane-based capture; (3) Low-temperature capture...
