“The Methanol Pathway to Hydrogen” Webinar

Wednesday, May 12, 2021 - 7:49pm

b'Element 1 Corp., (e1), a leading developer of hydrogen generation technology supporting clean fuel cell power technology, and the Methanol Institute (MI) are jointly organizing a webinar entitled \xe2\x80\x9cThe Methanol Pathway to Hydrogen\xe2\x80\x9d to be held on May 26, 2021, 8.00 a.m. (PDT).

Key Points: 
  • b'Element 1 Corp., (e1), a leading developer of hydrogen generation technology supporting clean fuel cell power technology, and the Methanol Institute (MI) are jointly organizing a webinar entitled \xe2\x80\x9cThe Methanol Pathway to Hydrogen\xe2\x80\x9d to be held on May 26, 2021, 8.00 a.m. (PDT).
  • The webinar will feature presenters who will discuss methanol\xe2\x80\x99s role as a superior hydrogen carrier supporting the global transition towards cleaner fuels.
  • The lack of efficient storage and transport methods is one of the most significant obstacles to overcome before hydrogen can be widely adopted as an energy product.\nGenerators that produce hydrogen from methanol can deliver on-demand hydrogen at the point of use, eliminating the need to transport compressed hydrogen gas.
  • In addition, this process can be carbon-neutral, and in some cases carbon-negative, when methanol is produced from renewable feedstocks such as captured carbon dioxide or municipal solid waste.\nFor more information about how methanol offers a pathway to hydrogen utilization, register for the webinar here .\nThe Methanol Institute (MI) serves as the global trade association for the methanol industry, representing the world\xe2\x80\x99s leading producers, distributors, and technology companies.

How Hydrogen Technologies Will be More Competitive in the Future Analyzed in New IDTechEx Report

Wednesday, May 5, 2021 - 3:48pm

b'BOSTON, May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Why should people buy a hydrogen car, if they will barely opt for an electric one?

Key Points: 
  • b'BOSTON, May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Why should people buy a hydrogen car, if they will barely opt for an electric one?
  • It appears at this stage of development that they won\'t.\nDespite these limitations, there is a lot of talk about hydrogen trucks, cars, trains, and sometimes even hydrogen planes.\nSo, where does this hydrogen interest comes from?
  • When green hydrogen can be mass-produced, reaching a competitive cost with conventional fuels, coupled with a network of hydrogen refueling stations (HRS), then the adoption of fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) will be spread.
  • Germany, one of the first to adopt hydrogen, presents one of the largest HRS networks in the world, together with projects in hydrogen blending in the gas pipeline, green hydrogen production hub, and hydrogen adoption in industrial applications.
