Dynamic Combustion Chamber™

The Dynamic Combustion Chamber™ - DCC™ - boiler is fueled by hydrogen and oxygen, emitting zero greenhouse gases.

Identification

The DCC™ boiler is a commercial/industrial process steam generator (or water heater) fueled by hydrogen and oxygen. It emits no carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, or other carbonaceous greenhouse gases. Moreover, it is NOx-free with pure hydrogen and oxygen. The primary product of combustion is water (steam), which when condensed is clean enough to be sent to a drain or recycled to the boiler, to an electrolyzer, or to another process that can utilize (warm) water. The purity of this "combustion" or "fuel" steam makes it easier to condense vs. more a dilute steam such as that obtained by combusting hydrogen in air. The energy efficiency of the DCC™ boiler is therefore superior, which is especially relevant wherever the cost of hydrogen is high. The system is particularly well-suited for electrolyzer-derived hydrogen where oxygen is a byproduct that is often vented to the atmosphere.

The environmental benefits

  • The dewpoint is greater for H2/O2 (DCC™ boiler) than H2/air combustion gases (~98 °C and ~70 °C, respectively at 15% excess O2)
  • A DCC™ boiler producing steam at 3000 kg/h generates ~29 cubic meters (7600 U.S. gallons) of clean water daily
  • A DCC™ boiler making 3000 kg/h steam saves 11 tonnes of CO2/day
  • The hydrogen-oxygen fired DCC™ boiler produces at least 400 kg of clean, warm water of combustion per 1000 kg of steam made
03.

The Financial benefits

  • At $1 per kg and electrolyzer O2 recovery, a DCC™ boiler’s fuel cost is equivalent to a ~$6.60/MMbtu ($23/MWh) price point for a conventional boiler
  • Recent natural gas prices in the EU have reached around $100/MMbtu ($340/MWh). The equivalent cost of hydrogen (with electrolyzer O2 recovery) for an optimized DCC™ boiler is ~$15/kg
