About Clean Hydrogen Technologies

The problem we're solving

Over 95% of the world’s hydrogen is today produced using a process called SMR (Steam Methane Reforming), which requires over 20 tonnes of water and releases over 8 tonnes of CO2 emissions per tonnes of hydrogen produced. Nonetheless, SMR is very cheap to produce at $2,000 per tonne and uses very little electricity at 2 MWh per tonne of Hydrogen. Any future solution will have to compete with these energy and price per production attributes. The remaining hydrogen is produced using electrolysis which has no CO2 emissions but does require a 9 tonnes of water per tonne of hydrogen placing pressure on the water demand. Also, electrolysis requires 5-6 times more energy than SMR and at scale is 3-4 times more expensive to produce, requiring new infrastructure and changes to supply chains.

Our solution

At CHT (Clean Hydrogen Technologies) we slot right into the existing gas infrastructure and supply chain with little impact. We use the same upstream gas. We do not burn the gas, so we have no CO2 emissions. Instead, we process it using our catalyst to produce Turquoise Hydrogen and a solid by product, called conductive carbon, used to manufacture batteries. Importantly we use the same electricity as SMR and at scale can produce for less than SMR per tonne.

Our differentiator

  • Our catalyst and our unique process designs are the source of our compelling capabilities.
  • To the best of our know no other technology can produce hydrogen as efficiently or can produce high quality by products, consistently.
  • No other solution can produce as energy and price efficient as CHT’s
  • We can scale down into small reactors for hydrogen hubs fueling transport and we can scale up to large production plants with thousands of reactors producing 1,000,000 tonnes of hydrogen per year as a source of energy to produce electricity using the same gas infrastructure in place today.
  • We don’t take up the same space as large electrolysis plants so can be close to major populations.
  • We can work in multiple decentralised production models or large centralised models.

Biggest achievement

  • On average, 92.5% of the time we are producing pure hydrogen, recycling uncracked methane back into the process.
  • Producing majority conductive carbon black and small quantities of Carbon Nano Tubes (CNT) in a 3:1 proportion to the hydrogen.
  • To the best our knowledge, our catalyst being is more effective than any other catalyst used in similar pyrolysis process for cracking methane.
  • Our ability to operate semi-continuously where other reactors must shut down to manage clogging or replace catalysts.
