Clariant and Hydrogenious enable the transportation of green hydrogen
Hydrogen is an excellent energy carrier, and an ideal alternative to traditional fossil fuels—but it is extremely difficult and costly to handle. Collaboration between Clariant Catalysts and Hydrogenious enabled the discovery of a safe and efficient way to store and transport green hydrogen.
Hydrogenious pioneered breakthrough LOHC technology.
But there were no commercial catalysts to selectively hydrogenate and dehydrogenate the LOHC carrier.
Clariant developed and scaled-up a custom solution in less than 1 year.
Cost-effective precious metal catalyst selectively hydrogenates and dehydrogenates the LOHC carrier with minimal degradation due to high selectivity.
Continuous collaboration with Hydrogenious throughout the development process enabled pilot results to be achieved in less than 1 year.
Key factors for success
Differentiated coating know-how backed-up by various patents
Equipment at lab, pilot, and
Close collaboration and
exchange of data
Significant reduction of costs and
time during scale-up
