Moscow Energy Institute develops new technology for hydrogen production

Specialists from the Moscow Energy Institute have developed a new technology for hydrogen production.

The press service of the institute announced that gases from steel production, as a by-product in oxygen converters, are used as raw materials.

The press service explained that the advanced technology is based on adding natural gas to the flow of converted gases (a by-product of metal production), which makes it possible to significantly reduce its temperature due to the treatment of carbon dioxide gas and obtain a gas containing hydrogen, and this method is based on the principle No waste when implementing the chemical energy storage process.

Calculations showed that in any mining enterprise the production volume is 10 million tons of converted steel annually, and it is possible to produce 92 thousand tons of hydrogen there. At the same time, greenhouse gas emissions in the enterprise will be reduced by 947 thousand tons annually.

Nikolai Rogalev, head of the Moscow Energy Institute, said that the new development of our scientists is capable of solving two problems at once, namely reducing the carbon footprint of heavy industry and developing a new, affordable technology for hydrogen production. Moreover, this method is a new step in the intensive energy saving methodology.
