Hydrogen Transport via LOHCs
Liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHCs) are an ingenious means of transporting hydrogen by chemically binding the molecules. Developed by Hydrogenious Technologies, the method involves hydrogenation of the liquid organic hydrocarbon benzyltoluene using Clariant’s EleMax® H catalyst to “store” hydrogen. At point of use, dehydrogenation with EleMax® D »releases« hydrogen on demand. The tailor-made catalysts offer exceptional activity and selectivity for loading and unbinding hydrogen in order to optimize the life cycle and efficiency of LOHCs.
Hydrogenious Technologies’ revolutionary solution and Clariant’s specialized catalysts present a safer, more efficient alternative for storing and transporting high volumes of hydrogen.
