Cost-efficient and scalable production
Research area lead: Marie-Laure Fontaine, SINTEF Industry
Background: The investment cost for green hydrogen (H2) production is currently too high. In addition, the current ramp up of the clean H2 economy is too slow to significantly contribute to climate targets. Furthermore, there is a limited understanding of the synergies between ammonia (NH3) production or cracking and the clean H2 value chain.
Research Area 1 (RA1) aims to develop the necessary technologies for enabling cost-effective and large-scale H2 and NH3 production technologies
Applying a technology-neutral approach to clean H2 and NH3 production will enable the scale-up of production capacity needed for domestic use and export.
- Scale-up and integration of efficient, durable, large-scale electrolysers
- Reactor and separation/capture technologies for cost-optimised blue H2 production
- Improved and dynamic production and cracking technologies for NH3
