Elevator Pitch

Merchant hydrogen today offers a US$ 100 bn. global market annually. With the turn to renewable and sustainable mobility and energy, significant additional growth potential comes from hydrogen mobility and the energy storage sector. But today’s existing hydrogen storage technologies, namely high pressure and cryogenic storage, make hydrogen handling difficult and its storage and transport inefficient and expensive.

Hydrogenious Technologies’ innovative Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carrier (LOHC) technology chemically binds hydrogen to a carrier oil, making hydrogen handling easy and safe and still achieving storage densities comparable to over 2,000 bar pressure – all at ambient conditions. A 40to truck for example can transport up to 1,800 kg of hydrogen with LOHC in a standard diesel tank trailer – a fivefold increase in transport volume compared to the standard 250 bar pressure transport in expensive tube trailers.

In the supply of hydrogen refueling stations, using an oil like ours allows for usage of the existing storage and transport infrastructure and therewith reduces the required infrastructure investment.
Overall, LOHC can reduce the cost of transport and storage of hydrogen by up to 50% and at the same time eliminates the risk factors associated with hydrogen.

Used in energy storage, in combination with an electrolyzer and a fuel cell, our liquid can store up to 1.9 MWh / m³ of LOHC – a tenfold increase compared to average lithium ion batteries. The technology is therefore ideal for storage of very large amounts of energy over longer periods of time – a key requirement for a successful turn to fluctuating renewable energies.

The LOHC technology therewith finally brings the flexibility into hydrogen handling that is required to make hydrogen the crude oil of a renewable area.

Founded in 2013 and with the support of a Series A round fully funded by Anglo American Platinum in 2014, Hydrogenious Technologies is now deploying first systems to commercial customers in Europe and the U.S., mainly from the hydrogen distribution sector, for real life testing and demonstration.

Product

Hydrogenious Technologies develops, designs and builds containerized systems for safe and efficient hydrogen storage and release.

StorageBOX
In the StorageBOX, hydrogen is bonded to the carrier oil by means of catalytic reaction.
The Series is a suite of containerized systems with current hydrogen storage capacities of 10 Nm³/h, 50 Nm³/h and 100 Nm³/h. The capacity will continuously be increased to also allow for large scale central hydrogen storage.
It can also directly be connected to an electrolyzer without the need of a compressor to ensure safe and efficient storage of renewable hydrogen.

ReleaseBOX
The ReleaseBOX allows for on-demand hydrogen release from the loaded carrier oil (also by means of catalytic reaction) as per the customer needs. The ReleaseBOX systems are installed at the hydrogen consumer site.
The Series is a suite of containerized systems with current hydrogen release capacities of 5 Nm³/h, 33 Nm³/h and 100 Nm³/h. In a first step, the release capacity will be increased to a maximum of 600 Nm³/h by 2018.
The hydrogen from the ReleaseBOX can directly be used in fuel cells, for industrial processes or to refill a fuel cell electric vehicle.



Why we are ecofriendly

With the right set of technologies, hydrogen can become the crude oil of a renewable area. It is available without limits and can be produced just from water and renewable electricity.

Our products and our LOHC based hydrogen storage technology finally make hydrogen handling easy and enable the realization of a sustainable hydrogen based economy.
