New catalysts for alkaline water electrolysis. Recent Inventions

19.06.2024

Aenert news. Invention analysisHydrogen production through electrolysis is the main hope of renewable energy in creating a full cycle of electricity generation through wind turbines and photovoltaic stations and its intermediate storage. This is necessary to compensate for forced downtime of these generating capacities due to natural cycles. At the same time, additional generation of electricity...

Hydrogen production by water electrolysis. Patent landscape

12.05.2024

Aenert news. Invention analysisElectrolysis is one of the main technologies for producing green hydrogen. However, to date, hopes for achieving acceptable competitiveness of this technology compared, for example, with steam reforming, have not been justified. The cost of hydrogen produced by electrolysis remains too high for mass production. In addition, another important problem for electrolysis...

The dark side of white hydrogen

23.04.2024

Aenert news. Energy resources and infrastructureThe extraction of natural hydrogen from the bowels of the earth is today considered a very promising area in renewable energy. Hydrogen is expected to solve a large range of industrial and environmental problems, including energy storage and reducing emissions from heavy transport. The original idea was quite simple: produce green hydrogen by electrolysis using...

LOHC – Hydrogen quality. Recent patent review

16.02.2024

Aenert news. Invention analysisEarlier, in a set of articles related to Liquid Organic Hydrogen Carriers (LOHC) technology we delved into such aspects of the technology as heterocyclic LOHC compounds (29.09.2023, 08.09.2023), hydrogenation and dehydrogenation (17.10.2023, 30.10.2023), LOHC catalysts in general and noble metal catalysts specifically (20.11.2023, 22.12.2023), and dealing with...

Hydrogen Tanks for Cars

29.01.2024

Aenert. Research Laboratory newsHydrogen is considered to be one of the pillars of the imminent energy transition. The gas, however, brings along several challenges concerning its safe transportation as it is highly explosive and must therefore be transported in high-pressure tanks. These tanks have a pressure of 700 bar and are made of fiber-reinforced composites (FRC). Compared to metal tanks,...
