Japan has found a way to reduce the cost of “green” hydrogen by two-thirds

Published

on

Japanese companies Eneos and Chiyoda intend to build a plant that will produce hydrogen without carbon dioxide emissions and at just one third of the current cost of hydrogen production. This is expected to be a breakthrough in the country’s quest for decarbonization.

The plant will use a patented electrolysis technology that will significantly reduce the required investment. The goal of the enterprise is to reduce the price of hydrogen to about $ 3 per kilogram. Eneos and Chiyoda are considering Australia and other regions as candidates for a plant in 2030.

Hydrogen, which can drive cars and turbines in power plants without generating CO2, is vital for decarbonisation, but production costs remain high. Currently, hydrogen on the Japanese market costs about $ 10 per kilogram. The government aims to bring that figure down to $ 3 by 2030, and over time to $ 2.

The method developed by Eneos and Chiyoda enables the electrolysis of water and toluene simultaneously, rather than through separate processes, to form methylcyclohexane (C7Hfourteen). This simplification of the process cuts equipment investment in half.

Liquid C7Hfourteen will be supplied at ambient temperature to power plants and other facilities where hydrogen will be produced from it for energy. This is much more cost effective than delivering hydrogen, which must be transported at -253 ° C in a special container.

The partners already have the technology to produce a limited amount of C7Hfourteenand they will now work to increase the power by using larger electrodes. They expect to develop a 500 kW unit by fiscal 2025.

The electricity required for electrolysis is planned to be obtained from renewable sources. In particular, Australia supplies such energy at a low cost. It takes about 1 km to install electrolysis equipment and storage tank2… Together with the solar power plant needed as a source of electricity, production will take 64 km2

The Japanese government has set a goal to use up to 3 million tons of hydrogen as an energy source by 2030. It is planned that from this amount “green” hydrogen will be 420,000 tons. It is estimated that the Eneos and Chiyoda plant will be able to produce 300,000 tons of hydrogen per year. In terms of energy value, this roughly corresponds to a nuclear reactor.

The Briton was jailed for spying on his ex To

In the UK, there was a curious case – 41-year-old Christopher Paul Trotman used an AirTag tag from Apple to track his ex-girlfriend. He glued the device to the rear bumper of the car and for some time tracked the location of the vehicle. And then he wrote the girl a message and revealed the fact of surveillance of her. As a result, he was detained, he is now in prison awaiting trial. Most likely, after the hearings, he will be released, but he will be banned from approaching the former at the level of a court decision.

The Briton was jailed for spying on his ex.  To do this, he used the AirTag tag.

As noted, the victim uses an iPhone, and she received a notification that an unknown AirTag was located next to her, but the girl ignored the information because she simply did not know about such a possibility in iOS.

Note that the latest improvements to AirTag include anti-stalking features. First, iPhone users will be automatically alerted if an unknown AirTag moves near them (which it did). Secondly, the tag will make a sound if it is far from the owner for a long time.

Initially, the tags only worked with the iPhone, but later the company released Android, which allows their phone owners to search for AirTag.

We previously reported on how to properly use the AirTag to get the most out of it.

One day it will be on Mars Elon Musk showed

SpaceX founder Elon Musk has published on his page a couple of new photos that show static fire tests of engines on the Starship B7 spacecraft.

After successfully conducting the latest tests, Musk wrote: “We are going to try to run the engine for a long time to test the autogenous seal.”

The billionaire signed one of the photos as follows: “One day it will be on Mars.”

“One day it will be on Mars,” Elon Musk showed new “sexy” tests of the Starship rocket

Musk posted a meme this week implying that Starship’s static fire tests are too sexy and that watching them is keeping him from “living a normal, productive life.”

According to the forecast, the first orbital test launch of Starship can take place both in a month and within the next year. It all depends on the success of bench tests.
