Carbon Clean, BayoTech to develop hydrogen, CO2 capture solutions
Carbon Clean, a leader in cost-effective CO2 capture and separation technology, signed a memorandum of understanding with BayoTech, to explore commercial opportunities targeted at hydrogen and carbon capture and utilisation deployment.
Initially, the companies will work together on a demonstration facility to evaluate, design, and operate a carbon capture plant at a BayoTech site in North America, which is expected to be operational by the end of 2022.
The firms have agreed on a roadmap for the technology integration of a carbon capture process on their hydrogen-generating units. The demonstration facility will include a BayoTech H2-1000 generating unit and Carbon Clean’s carbon capture technology. The partnership enables process optimisation to cut the cost for small scale hydrogen (H2) and CO2 production.
“We are excited about this breakthrough partnership with BayoTech that is going to enable the growth of the green hydrogen economy,” said Aniruddha Sharma, CEO of Carbon Clean.
“We look forward to this relationship growing to realise our shared objective of delivering affordable and modular H2/CO2 solutions to drive the transition to a greener future.”
Small-scale H2/CO2 solutions are optimal for biogenic sources such as anaerobic digestion from landfill, organic waste, and biomass plants where carbon-negative hydrogen can be produced. Both H2 and CO2 play key roles in the energy transition process and in reaching climate neutrality by 2050, the companies said.
Using dual solutions of H2 generation and CO2 recovery is essential to develop the growing hydrogen economy. With both companies focused on delivering scalable and modular technology, the partnership will accelerate the adoption of the circular carbon economy, converting resources into valuable low, zero, and negative-carbon fuel.
Mo Vargas, CEO of BayoTech, commented: “We are thrilled to be working with a world-leading company like Carbon Clean to deliver low and negative-carbon hydrogen projects. This combination of technologies provides an ideal solution to industrial decarbonisation and clean fuel production that is deployable today.”
