Towards A Zero-Emissions Steel Production: How ThyseenKrupp Produced The World’s First Hydrogen Steel By Eliminating Coal
Thyssenkrupp, a German manufacturing giant has completed a successful, first-of-its-kind demonstration of running a steel furnace completely on hydrogen, a development that is likely to further dent the prospects for the global coal industry. The company successfully demonstrated the ability for hydrogen to be used to fuel a steel blast furnace, and Thyssenkrupp sees the achievement as the first step towards transitioning the manufacturing industry towards zero-emissions steel production.

The use of hydrogen to fuel the blast furnaces in steel production also provides a pathway for using renewable hydrogen, potentially eliminating the dependence of the industry on coal. Gain insight on how the world’s largest steel producers have demonstrated it’s possible to heat a steel blast furnace using hydrogen.

Case Study: How BOC Plan To Help Progress The Commercialization Of Hydrogen For Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles In Queensland
Leading gas and engineering company BOC, a subsidiary of Linde plc produces hydrogen at its Altona facility via steam methane reformation in Melbourne, Victoria. Since the closure of the BP refinery at Bulwer Island, Queensland, BOC has transported hydrogen from Altona to Bulwer Island in high-pressure tube trailers to service its industrial gas customers. The transport of hydrogen from Victoria to Bulwer Island results in 90,000kg of CO2 emissions.

As a leading provider of hydrogen refueling infrastructure through its parent company Linde, BOC sees an opportunity to demonstrate ultra-high pressure refueling of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles, powered by renewable hydrogen produced at Bulwer Island.

14:05 The Hazer Process: Low Emissions Hydrogen And Graphite Production
  • The Hazer Process effectively converts methane, contained in natural gas or biogas, into hydrogen and graphite.  The process has low carbon emissions, capturing the carbon in the gas feedstock as a saleable graphite by-product rather than a waste CO2
  • The hydrogen produced could be used for vehicle fuel and chemical feedstock, while the graphite could be used in the production of lithium-ion batteries, water purification, and advanced materials
  • Update on the Commercial Demonstration Plant. The plant will produce 100 tonnes of fuel cell grade hydrogen and 380 tonnes of graphite per year, using biogas produced at the Woodman Point wastewater treatment plant as feedstock

14:40 Transporting Electrons Or Molecules? Infrastructure Requirements For Large-scale Green Hydrogen Deployment
Key questions that will be addressed in the talk include:

  • What are the key physical factors influencing the large-scale, long-distance transportation of energy as electricity or hydrogen?
  • What is the economics of hydrogen pipeline transportation as opposed to HVAC and HVDC electricity transmission?
  • How is the type and scale of renewable energy production influencing the optimal energy transportation solution?
  • What are the most suitable infrastructure options to enable a green hydrogen export industry that is co-developed with renewable energy zones?

13:30 Workshop B: What Got Us Here Will Get Us There: Transitioning From Fossil Fuels To Hydrogen
920x920
As momentum picks up in the hydrogen economy, transitioning from the traditional oil and gas business to new frontiers of energy sources becomes more and more imminent. The hydrogen economy is challenging due to the different needs and aspirations of government and private sector stakeholders as well as geographic locations, project delivery risks, operational complexities and limited technology advances. Therefore enabling the successful realization of projects in the energy transition requires an innovative combination of existing practices and creative engineering designs that will create an effective production facility. The increasing importance of hydrocarbons molecular management for reducing CO2 emissions by substituting hydrogen as fuel has been demonstrated by research, but implementation is inherently complex particularly in striking a balance between cost, revenue and value. In many cases while the cost is high and the revenue is apparently low, the improvement in performance can offset the expense and boost the overall value.

This presentation and workshop gives a glimpse of the hydrogen value chain and supply chain, production, storage and transportation methods, and analyzes the potential complexities that lie ahead towards sustaining the hydrogen economy.
