HDF Gas to Power Base Case

HDF SYSTEM PRODUCES HYDROGEN AND MULTIPLE PRODUCT GASES

The Hydrogen Designer Fuel (HDF) system utilizes Proteum Energy’s proprietary steam non-methane reformation (SnMR™) technology. It converts non-methane hydrocarbon feedstocks (such as ehtanol or any NGL, particularly ethane) into low carbon-intensity hydrogen, hydrogen-rich designer fuels, and pipeline synthetic natural gas (SNG).

Modular Flexibility allows production of multiple fuel products

  • Each system incorporates Proteum’s proprietary SnMR™ technology built around heavy hydrocarbon reforming (HHR) reactors
  • All non-methane hydrocarbons (including oxygenated) are possible feedstocks – e.g. ethanol, NGL, ethane, propane, methanol
  • Renewable feedstocm including ethane, can be used to produce renewable hydrogen
  • Optional modules – CO2 separation, H2 separation, SNG reactor -can be added to create customer-specific product gases
  • Product gases are fuel cell hydrogen, pipeline synthetic natural gas, hydrogen-rich designer fuel, and carbon dioxide
  • Decarbonizing applications include turbine fueling, natural gas pipeline H2 blending, and fuel cell quality H2 for transportation
  • Hydrogen-rich designer fuels can be blended to specific targets: Wobbe index, Methane Number, energy density (Btu/cf)
  • With CO2 sequestration, low-carbon intensity renewable or clean hydrogen is produced
  • Core technology platform requires minimum 2,000m² / 0.5 acre footprint and may be integrated with waste heat recovery systems
