Small but scalable, the Hiiroc solution takes natural gas (which is predominantly made-up of Methane) or bio-Methane and splits the Hydrogen and Carbon atoms in an Oxygen-free environment, so no CO2. A 200kW unit will produce 18kg of Hydrogen an hour. The resulting Carbon is deposited as solid Carbon Black and is a valuable commodity for the tyre, plastics, inks & coatings industries. Presenting the opportunity to decarbonise what is currently a highly emissive process
Energy companies have reserves of gas that despite being on balance sheet, cannot be extracted as governments and companies fall in-line with the Paris Treaty, these reserves can now be used. Bio-Methane, converted to Hydrogen, can now be a completely green and renewable source of energy as we remove the emissions in the cycle,
Storage, transportation and pressurisation of Hydrogen all add to the cost. We can produce on site, with Hydrogen on-demand, no storage issues and transportation issues. We produce at 50bar, drastically reducing the cost of pressurisation.
The Hydrogen Market, worth over $150bn globally in 2019, is predicted to be worth $250bn by 2026 and $2.5trillion in 2050. The Carbon Black market is growing too with shortages predicted in the USA and India next year.
The Hiiroc solution addresses the radical innovation requirements to deliver the Hydrogen Economy, it allows hydrocarbons to be used without the emissions, can be delivered to smaller users or a large industrial scale cheaply, efficiently and green. With the investment we require, we will be ready for market by the end of December 2020.
